‘Sending much love to everyone who is missing their mum today’: The Project’s Lisa Wilkinson Writes Moving Tribute to Her Late Mother on Mother’s Day

Lisa Wilkinson has penned a moving tribute to her late mother Beryl on Mother’s Day in an Instagram post.

Alongside a photo of the pair together in years gone by, the 60-year-old wrote:  ‘Sending much love to everyone, like me, who for whatever reason is missing their mum today.’

She went on: ‘I chose this pic because I think being a grandma was probably her greatest joy in life.’

‘And I know I never could have made it through those tough early years as a mum myself with three kids under five, without her limitless love and patience, particularly at times when I found myself struggling with it all.’

Lisa added: We took this pic when we were invited to visit the house I grew up in, in Sturt St, Campbelltown, a house my beautiful dad built himself. 

‘And in a kitchen where on many afternoons after school we would arrive home to warm jam drop biscuits fresh out of the oven. Still my absolute favourite.’

The TV personality concluded: ‘The love, it never leaves you… Here’s to Mums.’

Lisa’s mother Beryl died in 2018, and The Project co-host shared the sad news via Instagram

She wrote in tribute: ‘Farewell to my sweet, beautiful mum, Beryl. You were an angel, a fighter, and a devoted mum and grandma right to the end. Be at gentle peace now.’

Accompanying her tribute, Lisa shared an old photo of herself and Beryl alongside her three children - Billi, Louis and Jake.    

Lisa told Daily Life in June 2015: ‘Mum sort of grew up not kind of knowing where she was going to lay her head and… she met an angel in the shape of my dad.’

She also described her mother as, a ‘homemaker (who) was shunted between orphanages as a child, partly because her own mother was a chronic alcoholic.’ 

Lisa’s father Raymond, a one-time sales manager at a fencing company, died aged 69 in May 1990 after a battle with cancer.
