Celine Dion loses mother

Popular singer, Celine Dion has lost her mother, Thérèse Tanguay, to throat cancer. The woman died at the age of 92.
Thérèse, also known as “Mama Dion,” died January 16, 2020 after battling serious health issues for months. “It is with deep sadness that Feeling Productions announces the death of Mrs. Thérèse Tanguay Dion,” a statement released by Entertainment Tonight said.
“Mrs. Dion died peacefully at home, surrounded by her family. The family and loved ones thank you in advance for respecting their privacy during these difficult times. Details related to the funeral will be communicated later.”
Her death came after the fourth year anniversary of the death of Celine’s husband, René Angélil. He died on January 14, 2016 aged 73, also after a lengthy battle with throat cancer.
Thérèse was mother to 14 children, including Celine, with husband Adhémar-Charles Dion, who died in 2003 at the age of 80.
Born on March 20, 1927, Therese was a Canadian television personality. Already well known for her involvement with her daughter’s career, she later launched her own line of food products, Pâtés de Maman Dion, and became host of a cooking show for TVA.
Also, she sponsored the Fondation Maman Dion, an educational foundation which provides school supplies, clothing and eyewear to underprivileged children.
Yesterday, the 51-year-old Celine honored her late mother by sharing a black-and-white Instagram photo with the caption: “Maman, we love you so much.”
