The actress revealed the news in a statement to People magazine.

She said of her mom:

"Our beloved mother, Bettine Moore Close, drifted off her earthly moorings early [Monday] morning, peacefully in her sleep, with her devoted dogs, Lizzie and The Pudding, lying beside her. Mom was a remarkable woman with a huge heart and unquenchable spirit and she lives on in all of us who loved her so dearly.

Mom adored all creatures and instilled in her progeny a deep reverence for nature. She always had a posse of dogs following her around and she cared deeply about gorillas and elephants.

For anyone interested in making a donation in her memory, please send something to Virunga National Park. There is a program there called Congohounds that is training Bloodhounds to track poachers and wounded rangers. I think Mom would love that program. Here is their website: virunga.org/projects/."

Bettine lived a long and fulfilling life.

Our thoughts go out to you and your family, Glenn.
