The announcement was posted on the official Facebook page for Roberto Pulido on Thursday morning.
“It’s with a very heavy heart that I inform everyone that Adelina Lily Pulido (Roberto Pulido’s mother) gained her angel wings at 11:35 p.m., last night. Please give the family their privacy during this difficult time. Please keep the entire Pulido family in your thoughts & prayers. May she rest in eternal peace.”
Pulido, who conquered cancer a few years ago, died of health complications at her home in Edinburg, Texas. She was 86 years old.
“It is never easy to say goodbye to a loved one, but it hurts to see them suffer,” Bobby Pulido told People En Español . “We are overtaken by a surviving cancer warrior. On that side I’m calm. At the end of the day she overcame that disease. I will miss her without a doubt.”
The singer, who currently lives in Mexico, will fulfill his commitments this weekend in the state of Veracruz, and then travel to Texas where the funeral services will be held, People En Español reports.
