CELEBRATING MOM

Marie shared a vintage photograph of herself and their late mom, bearing beautiful smiles and posing for the camera. Being an up-close shot, it wasn't hard to see that the "Paper Roses" vocalist was her mom's twinnie. Married captioned the snapshot:

"#HappyBirthday to my Sweet Mother."

LESSONS FROM MAMA

Donnie and his sister really did learn a lot from their mom, and as the "Puppy Love" singer mentioned her "lasting influence" in his Instagram post, Marie once talked about her mom's wise words. Back in 2019, when the child star joined "The Talk," her mom's words resonated.

She passionately talked about the late matriarch and all the lessons and teachings she gained from her. Marie said in an Instagram post, "The memories I have of her wisdom pop up often, and this saying came to mind this week.

While she was alive, Olive May and her hubby, George Osmond, had nine kids, including Donny and Marie. As the only daughter, the "Read My Lips" star had a quite close relationship with her mom, and the two discussed a lot.

Once speaking with Closer Weekly, the country star talked about how her mom helped shape her to live a healthier lifestyle. Before her death, Olive was overweight, and she made sure to tell her daughter to adopt a healthy outlook on life.
