Losing a loved one is hard on anyone, but it is often more difficult for celebrities who always have the media and fans watching their every move. Although death is an integral part of life, grieving in the public’s eye is not something most people might desire.
Unfortunately, through the years, some A-listers have suffered the inevitable loss of someone close to them alongside the emotional pangs that come with the experience. Whether it was their parent, grandparent, siblings, or significant other, speaking out after their passing was a tough one and took great courage.
Recently, Hollywood star Lacey Chabert experienced a heart-wrenching loss. Her older sister Wendy died at the age of 46. The renowned Hallmark channel actor disclosed the sad news to her fans and colleagues via her social media account on November 23, 2021.
Lacey Chabert’s Tribute To Her Sister
In a post on Instagram, the “Mean Girls” actor wrote an emotional piece to her elder sister mourning her unfortunate passing.
“Our hearts are shattered into a million pieces that I do not know how we will ever put back together again now that you are gone,” she grieved. “We love and adore you more than we can ever say, and we will continue to forever and ever and ever.”
The actor chose not to reveal the details of what led to her sister’s death but noted that it was shocking and brought sad times to the family. She also asked the public to say a word of prayer for the family at this moment.

Lacey Chabert’s Hallmark Colleagues Offered Their Condolences
Most people know Chabert from her work on American pay television cable, Hallmark Channel. The 39-year-old has starred in 27 movies produced by the network throughout her storied acting career.
After speaking up about her sister’s demise, she received emotional messages from many other Hallmark Channel actors.
“Oh my goodness, Lacey. I love you so much and am sending prayers and love to you,” Danica McKellar commented. “I don’t know what I could possibly do, but please call on me if I can do anything at all.”
“Lacey, we are praying for you, your family, and Wendy’s family,” Candace Cameron Bure also said. “We love you, always here for you, my sweet friend.”
“Sending you so much love and strength,” commented Pascale Hutton, another Hallmark colleague. “My deepest condolences to you and your family.”
Fans Sent In Messages Of Support For The Actress
Throughout her career, Chabert had thrilled fans with numerous sterling acting performances in movies like “The Wild Thornberrys,” “Rugrats Go Wild,” “Daddy Day Care,” “Dirty Deeds,” and “Black Christmas.”
She also voiced Meg Griffin during the first installment of the acclaimed sitcom “Family Guy” and superheroine Zatanna Zatara on numerous occasions for DC Comics. It was therefore not surprising that her fans were sad about her recent loss.
One fan wrote, “I am so sorry for your loss!! I just lost my brother last month at the age of 43. I feel your pain. Sending you and your family lots of love, hugs, and prayers.”
“Sending you love and prayers. I’m so incredibly sorry for your unfathomable loss,” another follower said.
Although it might take some time, fans are hoping she eventually pulls through this difficult moment.
Lacey Chabert Often Posted Pictures Of Her Siblings On Social Media
Before Wendy’s death, Chabert’s siblings numbered three, including a sister Crissy and brother Tony. The quartet shares a tight bond, and Chabert often dropped their pictures on her page to appreciate them.
A notable instance was in August 2021. The actor celebrated National Sisters Day with a post on her page about her sisters.
