Known affectionately known as “Maman Dion,” the Canadian television personality died Thursday, Dion’s management confirmed to USA TODAY.
“It is with deep sadness that Feeling Productions announces the death of Mrs. Thérèse Tanguay Dion,” reads a statement provided by spokesperson Chantal Tessier Friday. “Mrs. Dion died peacefully at home last night, surrounded by her family.”
In tribute of her mother, Dion shared a dated black-and-white family portrait on Instagram, featuring Thérèse, husband Adhémar-Charles Dion, and their 14 children. The photo includes Dion, who is at 51 the youngest of nine girls and five boys. (Adhémar died in 2003 at age 80.)
“Maman, we love you so much,” Dion captioned the throwback.
Dion’s mother died exactly four years after the singer lost her brother Daniel to cancer at age 59 on Jan. 17, 2016. Dion’s husband René Angélil died from cancer three days before Daniel on Jan. 14, 2016 at age 73.
“There is not a day that goes by without me thinking about your beautiful smile,” Dion wrote on Instagram Tuesday, marking the fourth anniversary of her husband’s passing. “We miss you, thank you for watching over us my love. I love you.”
