It was revealed over the weekend that Shirley Williams, mother of talk show host Wendy Williams, has recently passed away. There was no explanation from the family, however a family friend announced the news on Instagram when she posted a post about her death.
On Monday, Wendy Williams first spoke about her mother’s death. Although there were few details about her death, many people felt that their mother may have passed away in the past week. However, Wendy revealed that her mother had passed away weeks ago.
Wendy said, “My mother died many, many weeks ago. They know how the world is turned upside down during the Corona, people are starving, people are unemployed, only everyone’s life is something new. They know how to lose sight of the day, date and time. I just know it’s been a long time. “
She went on to say, “First of all, she died beautiful and peaceful and surrounded by love. She hasn’t suffered a bit. “
As Wendy continued to remember her mother, she also talked about the close relationship they have had over the years and that she knows her mother is still around.
“Please, it’s not that I don’t cry, I just don’t cry in front of you,” Wendy said.
As previously reported, family friend and journalist Courtney Brown shared the news on Sunday on social media and said in her Instagram post, “One of my grandma’s best friends has passed away 83 years … Mrs. Shirley Williams Always available for my grandma and our family, she flew in to deliver this lovely grandma’s 100th birthday speech. Mr and Mrs Williams is really what the kids are now calling #CoupleGoals. May she rest peacefully and pray to @wendyshow and the whole family. “
We will continue to keep Wendy and loved ones in prayer during this time.
