‘Mean Girls’ actress Lacey Chabert reveals death of older sister
“Mean Girls” actress Lacey Chabert wrote an Instagram tribute to her older sister, Wendy Chabert, who died this week at the age of 46.
“My beautiful sister, Wendy,” Lacey Chabert, 39, wrote in the caption that showed her sister in a graduation photo. “Our hearts are shattered into a million pieces that I don’t know how we will ever put back together again now that you’re gone.
“We love and adore you more than we can ever say and we will continue to forever and ever and ever. The shocking loss has left us so broken-hearted.”
Lacey Chabert also posted the tribute to her sister in a Facebook post.
No details have been released surrounding the death of Wendy Chabert, who was born in October 1975, according to online birth records.
Chabert, 39, has been a staple in Hallmark movies, with her latest movie, “Christmas at Castle Hart,” premiering this month.
Hallmark’s official account added sympathies in the photo’s comments, writing, “We are so deeply sorry for your loss. Sending our love and strength to you and your family during this time.”
According to a 1992 article in the Clarion-Ledger of Jackson, Mississippi, Wendy Chabert attended New York’s Junior High and High School for the Performing Arts, along with another sister, Crissy Chabert.
Fellow Hallmark Channel star Candace Cameron Bure, also responded to Lacey Chabert’s post to offer condolences.
‘We are praying for you, your family and Wendy’s family,” Bure wrote. “Always here for you my sweet sweet friend.”
“Oh my goodness, Lacey. I love you so much and am sending prayers and love to you,” former “Wonder Years” star Danica McKellar wrote. “I don’t know what I could possibly do but please call on me if I can do anything at all.”
Lacey Chabert honored both of her sisters with an Instagram post on National Sisters Day in August, showing the trio in front of a Christmas tree.
“Couldn’t let #nationalsistersday pass without saying how much I love my two sisters,” she wrote in her caption. “They are the best big sisters ever and I thank God for them every day. Love you, Wendy and Crissy.”
