Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Tmz.com: “Celine Dion's Mother, Therese, Dead at 92”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Therese Dion -- mother of international superstar Celine Dion -- has died after months of battling serious health issues.

Celine's mom, who was known affectionately in Canada as "Maman Dion," reportedly passed late Thursday surrounded by her family and friends. Therese's eldest child, Claudette Dion, revealed last year that her mother had been dealing with significant health problems ... including memory loss and vision and hearing impairment.

The Dion matriarch had a whopping 14 children, who she raised with her husband, Adhemar, in Charlemagne, northeast of Montreal. Adhemar died in 2003.

Therese's death comes just 2 days after the fourth anniversary of the death of Celine's husband, Rene Angelil. Eerily, Thursday was also marked the 4th anniversary of Celine's brother, Daniel, dying -- so, this was already a very trying time for the singer and her family.

Therese co-wrote the song that convinced Angelil, a music manager, to represent Celine ... and the rest is history. She also founded the Maman Dion Foundation in 2006 to aid disadvantaged children.
