Whoopi Goldberg’s mother Emma Johnson passed away died on August 29 following a stroke. Whoopi who had been appearing in the London theatre production of Sister Act, cut short her run after learning of her mother illness and was by her side when she died. The media was hush hush about Whoopi’s mother passing away. Had Barbra Walters not made the announcement during the show, I would have never known….it was that quiet.
R.I.P. and my condolences to the Goldberg family.
