Daughter Billie Lourd was the one who had the statement released about her mother's passing and is survived by Lourd and siblings Todd, Joely, and Tricia Leigh as well as mom, Debbie. They also have made mention of her bulldog, Gary. Right now, the world is struggling to understand why 2016 seems to be the year of the celebrity deaths and Fisher is someone we were all praying for extremely hard.
Along with being a stellar actress, who just revealed that she had a three-month long affair with Harrison Ford during their time on "Star Wars," Fisher was also an advocate for mental health awareness. She had been diagnosed with BiPolar Disorder far before many celebs of today like Demi Lovato and Catherine Zeta-Jones. She has a few books under her belt, including "Postcards From the Edge," which was ultimately made into a film. We are sending thoughts and love to her family and all who knew and loved her as well as her super fans!
