Debbie Reynold’s death comes at a very shocking time – a day after her daughter, Carrie Fisher, died of cardiac arrest on Dec. 27, Tuesday .
84-year-old actress, Debbie Reynolds was reportedly rushed to the hospital after suffering a possible stroke, while she herself was in the middle of preparing her daughter, Carrie Fisher’s funeral.
According to Todd Fisher, Debbie’s son, he and the Singin’ In The Rain actress had discussed some things before she passed away, including how much she missed Carrie.
“She missed her daughter [Carrie] and wanted to very much be with her and she had discussed some other things,” Debbie’s son, Todd said. “She had been very strong the last several days; there was enormous stress on her, obviously. And this morning, she said those words to me and 15 minutes later she had a stroke and virtually left.”
It was reported that an ambulance came to a Beverly Hills home after receiving a 911 emergency call at 1:02 P.M, Wednesday. The responders came to transport an adult female to a nearby emergency room.
Just a day before her death, Debbie was sending her thanks to Carrie’s fans, who mourned the loss of their Princess Leia.
“Thank you to everyone who has embraced the gifts and talents of my beloved and amazing daughter,” Reynolds said in a statement posted on Facebook. “I am grateful for your thoughts and prayers that are now guiding her to her next stop.”
Debbie Reynolds first had her taste of the limelight when she was crowned Miss Burbank in 1948. She always had the air of optimism and charm that landed her her breakout roles in Singin’ In The Rain and Tammy and the Bachelor.
In 1964, Reynolds landed the film, The Unsinkable Molly Brown, which became one of her career-defining films to date. She also received an Oscar nomination for playing her role in the Charles Walters-directed movie.
