"The Fighter" Mother Alice Ward Dead at 79

Posted: April 28th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"The Fighter" Mother Alice Ward Dead at 79Submit Comment
Alice Ward, who was portrayed by Melissa Leo in her Oscar-winning role in "The Fighter," died early Wednesday morning in Boston. Ward, the mother of retired boxing champion "Irish" Micky Ward, was 79. Dicky Eklund, Micky Ward's older half-brother, confirmed her death.

Ward had been in failing health for the past few years. In January, she went into cardiac arrest and stopped breathing for 45 minutes (she regained consciousness and began breathing on her own).

"We lost the leader of our family," said Eklund. "She was a great woman, a strong woman. She taught us all what it means to be strong because she never gave up on any of us."

Ward raised nine children. She also wasn't happy with the way she came across in the film.

I have no idea who Bet lynch is I'm only 20 lol I know David though. Eastenders is probably the most outrageous comedy their is on TV now days, I think the writers have just accepted defeat and turned it into a spoof. I only liked it when both Mitchells were at large lol

"We lost the leader of our family," said Eklund. "She was a great woman, a strong woman. She taught us all what it means to be strong because she never gave up on any of us."

They always say something similar when someone dies. He was was great, she loved cats and puppies, he played the harmonica, blah blah blah. Believe it or not, even Hitler was given some kind words by those who believed in his ideals. Jeffrey Dahmers loved cats.

De mortuis nil nisi bonum? Bah.

I hope that wasn't something derogative in Latin there mink .....

Jeffrey Dahmers loved cats - Figures !!

Means: say nothing but good of the dead, but you know this lady was anything but a saint, not that you'd know that from what people say...

I want the word '*sshole' engraved on my tombstone, or whatever rock is closest to whatever ditch they throw me in, that way, at least I can die with honesty.

Yeah i agree Mink.

I couldn't stand to have some vicar who's never met me saying all nice things like we were the best of pals or something.

A ditch sounds good to me and cheap too..
