On their mom’s Instagram account Lillie and William, who goes by his middle name, posted a heartfelt message. “To all of our friends, near and far, all over the world… We’re sorry to tell you that our amazing, fierce, and loving mother died after a battle with cancer that we only just found out about. She was surrounded by her closest family as she fought, and she did so with a lot of strength.
This made us sure that she would always be happy to be alive, no matter what adventures lay ahead. “As famous as she was on screen, she was an even better mother and grandmother,” they said, referring to Waylon Tripp Parker, the Cheers star’s grandson.
“We are so thankful for the care from the amazing doctors and nurses at the Moffitt Cancer Center. Our mother’s enthusiasm and love for life, her children, grandchildren, and many animals, as well as her never-ending joy in making things, were unmatched. They inspired us to live life to the fullest, just like she did,” they said. “Thank you for your love and prayers, and please give us some space during this hard time.”
