Susan Lucci, 74, Pays Tribute to Late Mom Jeanette Who Dies Just Months after Her 104th B-Day
"All My Children" alum Susan Lucci has posted a heartwarming photo in tribute to her mother Jeanette, who died months after celebrating her 104th birthday.
Susan Lucci is grieving the loss of her mother, Jeanette, who passed away at 104. Taking to her Instagram page on June 25, the 74-year-old actress remembered her mother with an emotional tribute.
"Celebrating my mom's 100th birthday with my mother four years ago," Lucci captioned the adorable photo of her and her mom in a posh restaurant, enjoying two glasses of champagne.
"There were toasts to her and stories of her growing up in Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains and lots of love and music and laughter," she added. Late last month, her mother's health suddenly deteriorated.
According to Lucci, she received a call telling her that her mother, Jeanette, was nearing the end of her life. Her only hope at the time was that she would reach her beloved mom in time.
It is God and her hospice nurses that made that happen, the actress affirmed. During their time together, Lucci said she was able to tell her mother just how much she respected and admired her.
An assisted living facility in Florida provided Jeanette with care.
Lucci said Jeanette was born during the Spanish Flu in 1917, that she lived through World War I, the Great Depression, World War II, the Korean and Vietnam War, and the COVID-19 pandemic.
She then said her mom was a nurse. After receiving her training and degrees from Fordham University, she became an OR nurse. Lucci also shared that her parents were part of The Greatest Generation.
In May 2020, Lucci, who lives in New York, said that her mother is in a good place during an interview. An assisted living facility in Florida provided Jeanette with care. The Emmy Award winner said:
"And I'm able to call my mother numerous times during the week to check in on her health."
The star said she felt as if a cloud was lifting her and called the moment freeing. Meanwhile, in a 2019 interview, Lucci confessed that she had not informed her mom about her near heart attack experience.
