Therese Tanguay Dion Dead - Mother of Celine Dion Dies at 92

Thérèse Tanguay Dion has sadly died.

The television host and philanthropist, known as the mother of Celine Dion and affectionately dubbed “Maman Dion” by Quebecers, died on Thursday night (January 16) surrounded by family, according to Radio-Canada.

She was the mother of 14 children, including two singers: Celine and Claudette Dion. She also wrote Celine‘s very first hit, “Ce n’était qu’un rêve.”

In 2006, she started a foundation for the education of disadvantaged children, the Maman Dion Foundation.

Celine is scheduled to perform on Friday night (January 17) on her Courage World Tour, although it’s not yet known if she plans to postpone.

Our thoughts are with Therese‘s loved ones at this difficult time.
