Sarah Silverman's Mother Dies & The Comedian Pens Touching Tribute To Her Late Mom — PHOTO
It's a very sad time for one talented comedian and her family. Sarah Silverman's mother, Beth Ann O'Hara passed away last Wednesday at the age of 73. The New Hampshire Public Radio shared the news of O'Hara's death earlier this week, and now, her daughter Sarah Silverman is paying tribute to her late mother in a sweet and touching way. The actress and comedian took to Twitter to share a photo and message to her follows. The photo features a smiling O'Hara, and the caption reads:
"Wednesday morning my mom died. She was a know-it-all in overalls & two different colored socks. And defiantly, no bra. The woman who, when I was little, gave me detailed directions to a restaurant ladies room then secretly watched as I found my way to it on my own. The woman who went back to college at 42, and skinny dipped in ponds, and told me never to protect myself from a broken heart because it was so very worth the the pain to get to experience love."
According to New Hampshire Public Radio, O'Hara founded the New Thalian Players, with whom she directed and produced 50 different plays. In 2003, Silverman presented her mother with a lifetime achievement award at the New Hampshire Theater Awards. She said of her mom:
Loving, nurturing, caring, colorful – she used to wear two different color socks, I’m not sure she was aware of that – supportive, honest, strong and with endless creativity and energy. She gives us the feeling that we fill her heart with love and I think it’s because we fill her heart with love. Mom…we feel the same. You fill our hearts, as well.
We send our strength and condolences to the I Smile Back actress and her family during this difficult time.
