WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin’s mother, Mary Manchin, died Monday. She was 91.

The senator released the following statement:

“Today, the good Lord brought my dear mother home to rest in eternal peace next to my father. Gayle and I, and our entire family, are saddened by the loss of my beloved mother who touched so many in her life, but we know that she is now in a better place. We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers.”

Manchin said last week during an appearance on MetroNews Talkline that his mother wasn’t feeling well.

“Mom’s 91 God bless her,” Manchin said on Talkline. “She’s always been at my side and my best cheerleader, but you know, time is catching up with us.”

Manchin said his mother had been on oxygen but was able to stay at home under the watchful eye of his sisters Paula and Janet. The interview ended with the senator thinking about Mother’s Day.

“If you have your mother, God bless ya, and if you thought you were too busy to visit her take a little extra time and go,” Manchin said.

    I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. My prayers will be with you, your family and family friends. My father passed on year before my mom and when she died I felt like such an "orphan", I truly was nobody's baby any longer and it took me months to realize that I was still my mom and dad's bay and most importantly I am a child of God. She and your father had to have been so very proud of you and you can not have any regrets with that. Love them forever, miss them everyday and carry their teachings and love in your heart everyday, everywhere you go. Sincerely Yours, Linda Subat

    Dear Joe, Gayle and all of the Manchin family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you in this great loss. Yes, time is catching up with all of us, as you said, but it is still painful as we age and lose friends and loved ones. May you all be comforted by the 91 years of beautiful memories and the firm belief that she now walks again with your father and "our Father, Who art in Heaven". Condolences and prayers to you all. Love,
    George & Judy
