Gloria Vanderbilt dies at 95

Gloria Vanderbilt died at her home Monday at the age of 95. Vanderbilt was the daughter of railroad heir Reginald Vanderbilt and his second wife Gloria Morgan.

She became an accomplished actress, artist, socialite, and author during her lifetime. Her final piece of written work was a book she co-authored with her son, Anderson Cooper, in 2016.

Cooper announced his mother’s passing in an on-air eulogy on CNN Monday morning.

Speaking about his mother, Cooper said: “Gloria Vanderbilt was an extraordinary woman who loved life and lived it on her own terms. What an extraordinary life. What an extraordinary mom. What an incredible woman.”

Our prayers to the family.
