Less than a month after one of the happiest days Kelly Rowland’s life comes what must be of the saddest: Her mother, Doris Rowland Garrison, passed away on December 2 after suffering cardiac arrest one day prior, as the Associated Press reports.
She was 66 and would have turned 67 on December 7.
“It is with deep sadness that I announce the passing of my mother, Doris Rowland Garrison, she was an incredible soul who made countless sacrifices so that I could become the woman — and now mother — I am today. We humbly appreciate all the love and support and only ask for privacy during this difficult time”, the singer said in official statement
Happily, Doris lived long enough to become a grandmother — Kelly and husband Tim Weatherspoon welcomed their first child, son Titan Jewell, on November 4.
Last month, Destiny’s Child band mate Michelle Williams raved about the new mother.
“Kelly’s going to be an amazing mom,” she’s always been great with children … She’s a giver and a nurturing person and, really, that’s what motherhood is all about”, she said
Sounds like Kelly had a great role model in the motherhood department. Our thoughts are with her family at this time. Dorris is survived by Kelly and brother Orlando.
