Fashion maven June Ambrose sadly lost her mother, Eurydice Eudora Icilima Ambrose, on Saturday.

The iconic stylist announced the tragic news of her mother’s death on Instagram on Sunday, while also paying tribute to her with a photo slideshow.

“It’s with a heavy heart, but a soul at peace that I share with you the passing of my angel mother,” she wrote in the caption of the post. “She is the love of my (our) life and gave it her all for my sister and I! It’s the greatest pain I’ve ever felt but the closest I’ve been to God! Precious lord, I ask you to take her hand and lead her home!”

She added: “I love you mommy!”

Ambrose told InStyle in 2015 that her mother was her biggest inspiration:

“My mom inspires me,” she said. “She was a single working mom and came from the Caribbean at a very young age. She was so determined, and never complained, and never got tired. She was relentless, and that kind of drive and determination inspires me to this day.”

Our thoughts are with Ambrose and her family during this sad time.
