On September 20th, 2013 TMZ has reported that Debra McCurdy has passed away early Friday morning. Understandably Jennette will also not be making an appearance at the Worldwide Day of Play event. It’s understandable that Jennette will need plenty of time to recover and needs to be with her family during such a devastating loss of her mother, who has meant the entire world to her and was a role-model to being the strong woman she is today.
Debra McCurdy has been battling breast cancer for 17 years and Jennette herself has made multiple articles about her condition including one featured on the Wall Street Journal which you can read here. It’s without a doubt a shock to the entire world as just recently she has been in Jennette’s Vine videos showing a very happy, energetic, and witty mother, much like her daughter. Many are still hoping that it’s only a rumor as it’s too surreal to be true. Regardless, Debra will forever be remembered in the thoughts, prayers, and hearts of millions of fans.
On behalf of JustJennette and every McCurdian out there, we send our deepest condolences.
