“‘They tell me I get a golden rocket ticket. I’m ready, but I can’t take you with me.’ – my mom. And off she went. I won the jackpot of moms. I can assure you, she is not resting in peace but thriving in utter well-deserved bliss. I am thrilled & beyond grateful for her.”

Barbara Grahn passed away at the age of 90, leaving behind an incredible legacy to be carried on by her daughter Nancy, her daughter Kate, Nancy’s two sisters and their families. Fans had learned about the turn Grahn’s mom had taken from the actress herself from a tweet on July 10.

“My mom’s hospice caretaker is an earth angel. Her name is Nita & she hasn’t seen her children in 2 yrs because of Trump. I love her beyond measure and hate him beyond all imagination. She promised me goodness will win. I choose to believe her.”

Learning that Grahn’s mother was in hospice alerted fans that the situation, which Grahn had chronicled for the last several months in various tweets and Instagram posts, had taken a dire turn. Her fans rallied behind her and started a Gofundme page to support her favorite charity, SmileTrain, touching the actress deeply.

“Thrilled. Mom was born in 1929 with a cleft palate. Many surgeries, & heartbreak from stares, exclusion & bullying & yet mom never shared that pain. Instead, she became a successful publisher at SDRS & 1st woman there to wear pants. She through her example taught us to be fierce.”

Fierce is the perfect word to describe Barbara Grahn’s legacy to her family. Soap Hub sends condolences to Nancy Lee Grahn, her daughter Kate, and her entire family.
