Our hearts go out to actress Chrishell Stause (Jordan, DAYS OF OUR LIVES; Amanda, ALL MY CHILDREN), who is mourning the death of her mother, who passed away from lung cancer. “In disbelief that you are gone,” she shared on Instagram July 19 with a series of photos. “Feeling just about every emotion, but I find comfort knowing Dad is up there taking care of you and showing you the ropes like only he could. Absolutely heartbreaking watching you take your last labored breath, but there is a peace knowing you two are together again, free from the pain that plagued your time here. A free spirit and rebel ’til the very end. My beautiful Mom, in your own words, #F***Cancer.”
Stause also made special mention of the people who helped keep her mother comfortable in her last days. “Our family would like to thank the Ray and Kay Eckstein Hospice Care Center and especially Debbie and Pam, who helped lovingly assist our mom to the other side,” she wrote. “Your kidness and care in this time will never be forgotten.”
Stause first opened up about her mother’s terminal diagnosis back in February and just a month ago, she shared a sweet video on Instagram where she brought out an old wig she wore years ago to the American Music Awards to have some fun teaching her mom to do a proper soap turn hair flip.
Please join us in sending love and sympathy to Stause and her entire family during this difficult time.
