The Bravoverse lost a gem this week.
Lisa Rinna’s beloved mom, Lois Rinna, passed away on Monday at the age of 93 following a recent stroke.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star announced the sad news on Instagram early Monday afternoon.
“Lois DeAndrade Rinna June 7, 1928 – November 15, 2021, 5:05 am Heaven Has a New Angel,” Lisa wrote alongside a photo of Lois from her wedding day.
Lisa’s daughters Amelia and Delilah Hamlin both posted tributes to their Nana on Instagram following the news of her passing.
“Nana, What a special human you were. There are no words to encapsulate how amazing you were. This journey has been such a sad, shocking, yet beautiful experience because I know, now you get to be with Frank and be reunited with the love of your life while looking as beautiful as ever. Heaven has certainly gained a beautiful, smart, entertaining, compassionate, loving angel this morning at 5:05 am,” Delilah wrote. “I will never forget you, Nana. I love you more than you have ever probably known. You were a fighter. You taught and showed me the meaning of strength. And as one of your last wishes, I will get better for you.”
Amelia shared, “My guardian angel for the rest of time. I love you so much my Lolo… you were and will always be much more than a grandma to me.. you were my best friend. My strength. My rock. My everything. Your laughter never failed to light up any room you ever walked in. Anyone who got the pleasure to meet you was so blessed.. there will never be anyone like you. Thank you for being the strength our family needed. Thank you for teaching us what it means to be a strong woman… and just like that.. you’re back with Frank. I know they’re having a party for you.. and you are dancing your way through heaven… you’ll never be gone…”
Lois’ passing came after she suffered a stroke last week. Lisa announced the news on Wednesday via Instagram while asking for fans to celebrate her mom during her transition.
“I know how much you appreciate and LOVE Lois so I need to tell you,” Lisa explained. “So lets [sic] celebrate her and send her so much love while she transitions. I was so conflicted to share this very very sad news with you, but I know you would want to know.”
She continued to share updates with fans as Lois “transitioned.”
“Nobody tells you how to do this. You know, there’s not a handbook. There’s never a way to be ready to let go,” she tearfully admitted in a video.
Lisa’s Bravo family has rallied around her in the last week. Housewives and Bravo stars from across the network sent their condolences to the RHOBH star and her family.
