NEW YORK (WKOW)-- The mother of "Good Morning America" co-host Robin Roberts has died.
Jeffrey W. Schneider, senior vice president of ABC News, said 88-year-old Lucimarian Roberts died Thursday night. ABC's Facebook page says Roberts traveled "home to Mississippi just in time to see her."
The death came on the same day Roberts said goodbye to her co-workers and audience before starting medical leave for a bone marrow transplant. Her departure was originally set for Friday, but she told her viewers she would be leaving a day early to visit her ailing mother.
