This morning, Lisa Wilkinson announced the heartbreaking news that her mother, Beryl, had passed away.
The Project presenter took to Instagram this morning to post a sweet throwback photo alongside her mother and kids.
“Farewell to my sweet, beautiful mum, Beryl. You were an angel, a fighter, and a devoted mum and grandma right to the end. Be at gentle peace now. xxx,” she wrote.
In a 2015 interview with Daily Life, Lisa opened up about her mother’s fighting spirit, revealing she was raised between orphanages as a child after her grandmother suffered from alcoholism.
"So Mum sort of grew up not kind of knowing where she was going to lay her head, and, um, she met an angel in the shape of my dad," she told the publication.
We send our love to Lisa and her family during this sad time.
