We have lost one of the greatest! Joan Rivers, the internationally renowned comedian, Emmy-award-winning television talk-show host, Tony-award-nominated actress, bestselling author, screenwriter, film director, columnist, lecturer, radio host, jewelry designer, cosmetic-company entrepreneur, and red-carpet fashion laureate. Many of us just know of Joan as a bold comedian who said what she had to say with “no holds bar.” But above it all Joan was a proud mother and grandmother.
Her daughter Melissa shared these words, “It is with great sadness that I announce the death of my mother, Joan Rivers. She passed peacefully at 1:17 p.m. surrounded by family and close friends,” then went on to say, “My son and I would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff of Mount Sinai Hospital for the amazing care they provided for my mother.”
Her daughter Melissa, was her best friend, her confidant. The decision to remove her from life support, one can only imagine the heartache she endured. During this traumatic time Melissa was surrounded by close family and friends by her mother’s side. Joan’s private room was filled with flowers and the star’s her hair and makeup had continued to be done as this “Fashion Police” Queen would of wanted.
Joan Rivers you will be missed by all. Her charismatic sense of humor and moxie personality were just a few of the many amazing qualities that had her outshine the brightest light in this world.
RIP Joan Rivers
