Kirstie Alley, one of the most enduring movie and television stars of the 1980s and 1990s, died at the age of 71.
In a statement, the celebrity’s children, William “True” and Lillie Parker, announced their mother’s death on her numerous social media channels.
It was addressed to “all of our friends from all across the world…” “It is with tremendous sadness that we must inform you that our beautiful, full of energy, and beloved mother has passed away after a brief battle with cancer.”
“She fought with amazing strength while surrounded by her closest family members, leaving us with the assurance of her never-ending joy of living and whatever adventures lay ahead.”
According to the story, despite her legendary stature in the entertainment business, she was an even better mother and grandma. We are grateful to the exceptional team of medical professionals at Moffitt Cancer Center for the treatment they offered.
“Our mother’s energy and enthusiasm for life, her children, grandchildren, and numerous animals, not to mention her boundless joy in creating, were unparalleled. As a result, we are inspired to live our lives to the fullest, just as she did.”
“We would like to express our gratitude for all of the love and prayers that have been sent our way, and we would appreciate it if you would respect our privacy during this difficult time. With love, always and forever.”
Kirstie worked continuously in both movies and television shows during the 1980s. Her most well-known roles, however, were as Rebecca Howe on Cheers and in films such as Drop Dead Gorgeous and the Emmy Award-winning David’s Mother.
She has been in various television shows such as Veronica’s Closet and Scream Queens, as well as her own ill-fated sitcom Kirstie.
The actress was a regular figure on television, and she even finished second on Dancing with the Stars’ twelfth season and Celebrity Big Brother’s second season. She was a staple in the industry.
Kirstie’s first marriage was to Bob Alley, and her second husband Parker Stevenson ended in divorce in 1997. Because of her relationship with Parker, she became the adoptive mother of True and Lillie, as well as the grandmother of True’s son Waylon.
