Tom Bergeron’s Mom Passes Away 4 Months After His Dad

This is so sad. A mere 4 months after the death his father, Dancing with the Stars host, Tom Bergeron, has lost his mother, Catherine “Kay” Bergeron. She died at age 81 after battling cancer. Tom announced the news in a series of tweets:

Tom will understandably miss the DWTS reveal set for GMA Tuesday morning. He promises he’ll be back to host the DWTS premiere on March 21.

A memorial tweet dedicated to his mom.

Tom thanks fans for their kind words. Sometimes twitter ain’t so bad.

In addition to Tom, Kay and Ray are survived by daughter Maureen Vallieres, four granddaughters and two great-grandchildren. Via E Online
