Throughout the years, Epstein appeared on TV numerous times with her famous daughter, including during her 15-year run from 1985-2000 on Live with Regis & Kathie Lee.

Kathie Lee Gifford's mother, Joan Epstein, has died aged 87, the Today host announced on Twitter on Tuesday.

Gifford's co-host Hoda Kotb shared an Instagram post of both her and Kathie Lee along with their moms. "My precious mother, JOANNIE went home to JESUS & my DADDY this morning".

Kotb posted on her personal account a photo of her and Gifford with their mothers, writing "We will miss you sweet Joannie". Gifford's father, Aaron Epstein, passed in 2002. "Find peace in knowing you were there for her", a fan responded to Gifford's tweet.

The pair also announced Joannie's passing on the "Today" show Wednesday morning. "[She's] the sunniest person I know, expect for maybe Hoday [Kotb]".

During an interview in May 2016, Gifford gushed about her mother's optimism. It can be 10 days of rain, and she'll say, 'You know, I like a rainy day.

She also opened up about how much her mother meant to her and how much she supported her in achieving her dreams.

She was only 17 years old when she left home to pursue her career, and both of her parents were all for it.

They wanted Kathie Lee to follow her passion, and that is the same parenting style she used with her own kids. "She gave me wings".

Joan Epstein was known to "Today" viewers for her appearances and her daughter's warm words about her.
