Selma Blair Mourns Death of Mom Molly Cooke in an Emotional Tribute
Over the weekend, actress Selma Blair, 47, took to Instagram to reveal that her mother had passed on. Molly Cooke died at home in Michigan on Saturday at the age of 82.
HER MOM WAS HER MUSE
WORKING AS A LAWYER
Included in the post was an old photo of Cooke on her wedding day. The "Hellboy" actress’s mother was a graduate of the University of Detroit-Mercy School of Law.
For more than 50 years, she worked as a lawyer. She also served as a Workers’ Compensation Magistrate and was a member of the Workers’ Compensation Hall of Fame.
For her 32 years of outstanding public service, Blair’s mother received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Polish American Legal Society. The actress is the youngest of Cooke's four daughters, Katherine, Elizabeth, and Marie Beitner.
DEALING WITH ISOLATION
Last Friday, Blair shared an Instagram photo from her hospital stay last summer. She revealed in the post that she was “adjusting” in a similar way now that she was at home in Los Angeles during the COVID-19 pandemic.
SELMA’S MS BATTLE
Last year, she had to go into isolation at a hospital after undergoing a stem cell transplant for her multiple sclerosis. In August 2018, the star was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS).
She had to undergo the transplant after finding herself “out of options” to deal with the intense pain and physical struggles from the disease. Besides the transplant, the actress had to undergo chemotherapy.
