Whoopi Goldberg made a sad announcement on The View on Tuesday that her mother, Emma Johnson, passed away over the weekend.
After Emma suffered a “severe” stroke last week, Whoopi immediately left the London production of Sister Act to be with her mother.
Unfortunately, Whoopi announced that Emma, “one of the best people I’ve had the privileged of knowing” passed away on Sunday.
“I’m not sad, because she had a great time,” Whoopi said on The View of her mother’s life.
“My mother was a great adventure person, so she loved to go on adventures and my brother and I made sure that her life was full and rich,” she added.
“I think I’m just sad sometimes that I think, ‘Who will love me the way that she did?’” she explained. “But I realize that my brother and I have each other and so we’re OK.”
