The Grimmie family said in a statement they shared on social media yesterday: “We are saddened to announce the loss of our beloved Tina, also affectionately known as ‘Mama Grimmie’ to the millions of fans of Christina Grimmie around the world. She will be missed immensely,”

“Tina fought a courageous and brave battle with cancer for many years, even until her final hours with family by her side,” the statement read further. “While this is a bittersweet moment for us as a family, particularly after losing Christina two years ago, we rejoice at the thought that Tina and Christina are united once again in the presence of our Lord and Savior. Tina Grimmie was a powerful and shining example of motherhood, being an amazing wife while giving love and encouragement to others. Her laugh, energy, passion and joyful spirit will eternally be a part of all of us.”

On June 10, 2016, The 22 years old Christina was shot after performing as the opening act for Before You Exit at The Plaza Live venue near downtown Orlando. Cristina Grimmie’s brother Marcus Grimmie heroically tackled the shooter Kevin James Loibl to the ground, before the latter turned the gun on himself.

Late Christina Grimmie who rose to fame in 2014 through her popularity on youtube and later the Voice, had revealed to AXL that her now deceased mother had survived breast cancer four times.
“My mom has had breast cancer four times, now. And she just got put back on chemo again,”

After the demise of the singer, her family set up a foundation to support other families who had lost a member to gun violence and had another member battling with breast cancer.
Instead of sending flowers, the Grimmie family has requested that voluntary donations be made to the Christina Grimmie foundation in honour of late Mama Grimmie.

Tina Grimmie survived by her son Marcus, and her husband, Bud. Details of how she would be laid to rest are yet to be communicated by the Grimmie family.
