Tom Cruise is mourning the passing of his mother, Mary Lee South, who died peacefully in her sleep last week after years of coping with health issues. She was 80.
Mary’s memorial service was held at an undisclosed Church of Scientology over the weekend. Tom and his three sisters, Lee Ann Devette, Marian Henry, and Cass Mapother were all in attendance.
Last October, Tom Cruise talked about his mother’s unwavering support saying:
I know that she is just obviously very proud, and kind of I guess, just amazed, you know, because you talk about something, you dream about something, and she knows I used to work jobs so I could make money and I could go to the movies. I would make movies one day, and for it to happen, and on the level that it is happening…I know she just is really proud.
My condolences to Tom and his family.
