Liam Neeson's Mom Dies at 94, One Day Before His Birthday

Liam Neeson‘s mom Kitty has sadly died at the age of 94.

People reports that Katherine “Kitty” Neeson died on Saturday (June 6) in north Ireland, just one day before Liam‘s 68th birthday.

All Saints Church in Ballymena noted Kitty‘s death during a livestreamed church service that day. Parish Priest Monsignor Paddy Delargy said, “Let us pray for the faithful departed. We pray for those that died recently‚Ķ and Kitty Neeson. Her funeral arrangements will be later.”

Liam returned home to live with his mom after leaving Queen’s University Belfast in 1971. He worked several jobs in his hometown before becoming an actor, but he later received an honorary doctorate from the school in May 2009. He said he was happy to “finally” tell his mom that he had graduated from the university.

Two months before he received the honorary degree, Liam‘s wife Natasha Richardson tragically died at the age of 45 during a skiing accident.

We’re sending our thoughts and condolences to the Neeson family during this difficult time.
