I’m sorry to be posting more than one item concerning deaths this morning, but it just can’t be helped.
Angelina Jolie’s actress mother, Marcheline Bertrand, succumbed to cancer Sunday afternoon atÂ CedarsÂ Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.Â BertrandÂ had been battling cancer for some time & was 56-years-old when she died.Â
“Angelina came to visit her two weekends ago and spent the afternoon with her in her room,” an insider revealed.
The former actress raised Jolie & Haven as a single mother after she & her husband Jon Voight divorced in 1978.Â Bertrand appeared in the moviesÂ Lookin’ to Get OutÂ & The Man Who Loved Women .
A private funeral is being planned & in place of sending flowers, the family of Bertrand is asking that donations instead be made to the Women’s Cancer Research Institute at Cedars Sinai.
Our thoughts are withÂ the family during thisÂ time.
