The pair tweeted together

Cher announced the news via Twitter on Saturday morning, along with a sad-face emoji. Cher's mother was 96.

Using social media to share

After sharing on social media in September that her mother was hospitalized with pneumonia, the pop superstar revealed the news three months later.

According to a singer at the time

She added in a follow-up tweet, 'She's doing better.'. Sorry I've been MIA. Mom just got out of the hospital for pneumonia.'.

Taking care of her mother

During the 2020 holiday season, Cher said she would be careful with her mother's health and get tested frequently for COVID-19.

Float in a bubble

We live in a bubble, she said. We wear masks, and we don't talk very much. My sister, brother-in-law, mom, and assistant are the only ones. We stay far apart.

The birth of Holt

Lynda Inez Gulley and Roy Malloy Crouch married in 1926, and Holt was born in 1926 as a model, actress, and singer.

A family member's arrival

With the arrival of her family in Los Angeles, she ended up with film and television roles in the 1950s, including I Love Lucy and Watch the Birdie.

Recording of her debut album

Her debut album Honky Tonk Woman, recorded in the 1980s, was released in 2013, and she appeared on The Mike Douglas Show in 1979 and 1980.

Making mistakes and sharing them

Even though she knew we wouldn't take advice from her, Cher said her mother taught her life lessons by sharing her mistakes and successes.

Motherhood was always Cher's focus

As a child, Cher remembered her mother, friends, and Holt being 'so beautiful.' She and Holt 'fought a lot' because Cher was 'really strong-headed.'

Analyzing the situation

Cher said she preferred to listen first, so she could always discuss her romances with me. 'She wasn't too slow to let go of Sonny Bono,' Cher said.
