What fun it was every time Martha's mom was on the show. Her 90th birthday was especially fun and endearing! I was just wondering when she would be back to have some fun. Awww, thanks to Martha Stewart for sharing "mom" with us through the years.

I was so sorry to read this-- this morning. Thanks to TMZ we can keep updated to what is really going on currently. I have been up since 4:00 am listening to just about all the cable news channels and none have mentioned her mother's sad passing. In previous years I have alway enjoyed seeing Martha and Kastyra's cooking together and sharing their recipes.

This was a grand lady from an era almost forgotten. An era when food was homemade and all work related to keeping a home up was manual. No modern gadget, just back breaking work. Yet, she was educated and functioned also outside of her home. This was not a small feat in those days. She raised Martha, who, if you like her or not , is artistic and has business smarts, but she also raised her other children. May her legacy live long in all her children, grandchildren and generations to come.

Sorry for your loss, Martha. I'm glad she was able to live so independently to 93 almost to the end.

You idiots that are so disrespectful really think ANYONE will check out your sites after you have been so insensitive? Disggusting animals! There are people in mourning for loved ones, we should have respect, much love and condolences to the Stewart/Kostyra family. Martha and her mom did things the old fashioned way, with hard work and love!

Martha didn't announce it, BC that might take the limelight off of HER for a day!
