Wayans Family Matriarch Dead at 81, Marlon Pays Tribute
Marlon Wayans remembers her late mother on what would have been her 82nd birthday, and reveals the matriarch of the Wayans family, Elvira, is dead.
We’re told Elvira passed away a few weeks ago, but Marlon waited until his birthday to share the grim news. He posted a touching tribute to his mother on Thursday, which is usually a very special day for them … they share a birthday, and Marlon says it’s hard to celebrate another year knowing that his mother is gone for always.
The comedian wrote … “Losing you shattered me into 1000 pieces. I’m putting my life back together piece by piece. You will always be my glue. I miss you. Today I’m partying for both. In the middle of it all. Hurt … I just love you my. “
Marlon adds … “I have accomplished so much, I made you so proud … but now I have an angel to lift me up. #Loveofmylife #bdaygotl s *** ma, I gave you all my birthdays … now 😂 millions of weetahs sugtas and pals #myfirstmylastmyeverything are resting well. “
Damien wayans also commented on his uncle’s post … “1,000,000 weetahs indeed!”
Let’s face it, Hollywood owes Elvira a debt of gratitude … the woman brought 10 Wayan children into the world, giving birth to one of the biggest and most successful families in show biz.
Elvira’s children – Keenan, Damon, Shawn, Marlon, Dwayne, Kim, Nadia, Elvira, Diedre and Vonnie – have written, directed, produced and starred in countless movies and TV series, including “The Wayans Bros.”, often working together on their content.
