On March 17, 2020, comedienne Kathy Griffin’s mother passed away just before her 100th birthday. This week, the star took to social media to thank her famous friends for paying tribute to her late mother.


Taking to Twitter, Griffin uploaded two photos that showed some flowers and notes that she’d received from her celebrity friends who honored her late mother, Maggie. The Kardashian-Jenner family, and Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade, all sent white flowers with notes to Griffin.

In the caption of the post, the comedienne tagged her “beautiful friends” in the post and thanked them for the flowers. She revealed that she was “very touched.”

Bouquets to honor Maggie Griffin

The first bouquet of flowers was sent by Kris, Kendall, and Kylie Jenner. Included in the gift was also Kourtney, Kim, Khloé, and Rob Kardashian.

A week before, Griffin took to social media to announce the death of her "best friend." In the post, she wrote: “My mom, the one and only Maggie Griffin, passed away today. I am gutted.”


Griffin shook by mom’s death

She went on to reveal how she was shaken by the death and hadn’t been prepared. She thanked those who’d been in her mother’s life and revealed that Maggie knew they’d “loved her.”

The star ended her post by noting how her mother had died on St. Patrick’s Day. Griffin included an image of herself and her mother reclining on a chair while staring out at an amazing view.


Featuring on Griffin’s show

In January this year, the comedienne shared how her mother was suffering from dementia. Some fans will recall seeing Maggie as a guest star on her daughter’s reality show, "Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List.”


Last proper conversation between Kathy & mom

Griffin explained in the caption of the post how she last had a “proper/coherent conversation” with her mother last September. Included in the post was a photo of Maggie lying in bed with Griffin perched next to her.


Maggie spiraled into dementia

The star revealed that time together was the last time her mother was coherent. Since then, Maggie had fallen deep into dementia.

Stars who paid tribute to Maggie

When Griffin announced her mother’s passing, many celebrities took their time to pay tribute with messages of support and love. Yashar Ali, Chrissy Teigen, and Selma Blair were some of the stars who reached out.
