One of the most enduring actors from the 1980s and 1990s, Kirstie Alley passed away at the age of 71.

William “True” and Lillie Parker, the celebrity’s kids, released a statement on her multiple social media platforms announcing their mother’s passing.

“All of our friends from all across the world,” was the salutation. We must inform you with great grief that, following a brief struggle with cancer, our lovely, vibrant, and cherished mother has died away.

With her closest family members by her side, she “fought with amazing strength, leaving us with the knowledge of her never-ending joy of living and whatever adventures lay ahead.”

Despite her legendary status in the entertainment industry, she reportedly made an even greater mother and grandmother. We are appreciative of the therapy provided by the top-notch medical staff at Moffitt Cancer Center.

“Our mother had an incomparable amount of energy and passion for life, her kids, grandchildren, and innumerable animals, not to mention her limitless joy in creating. We are motivated as a result to live our lives fully, just as she did.

“We would like to thank everyone for their kind words and prayers, and we would appreciate it if you could respect our privacy during this trying time. Always and forever, with love.

Throughout the 1980s, Kirstie consistently appeared in both films and television programs. Her most well-known performances, however, were as Rebecca Howe on Cheers and in movies like Drop Dead Gorgeous and David’s Mother, which won an Emmy.

She has been in several television programs, including Veronica’s Closet, Scream Queens, and her own unsuccessful sitcom Kirstie.

The actress was a regular on television and even placed second on the eleventh season of Dancing with the Stars and the second season of Celebrity Big Brother. She was a mainstay in the field.

Both Kirstie’s second marriage to Parker Stevenson and her first marriage to Bob Alley ended in divorce in 1997. She became the adoptive mother of True and Lillie and the grandmother of True’s son Waylon due to her connection with Parker.
