See who else we've lost this year

Last February, Stephen Colbert canceled two shows when his mother fell ill. "Evidentially, having 11 children makes you tough as nails," Colbert, the youngest of those 11, said at the time. "Confidential to a lovely lady."

According to her obituary, Lorna was an accomplished artist, church leader and business woman. Lorna lost her husband and two of her sons in a plane crash in 1974.
