Kathy Griffin revealed her sister Joyce has passed away after a battle with cancer.
She was 65.
Griffin, 56, shared the news on Twitter Friday night, writing “My sister Joyce passed away peacefully last night Check out this beautiful moment.”
The moment she was referring to was a video of Joyce enjoying a musical from her hospital bed.

At the end of the video, a cartoon version of Joyce appeared along with the message: “This is where she always wanted to be… & now she’s having a Mai Tai on the beach in heaven.”
The comedian also included a link to support the American Cancer Society in her message.
Just a few months ago, Griffin shaved her head in solidarity with her sister as she fought against the disease.
Griffin’s brother Gary died of esophageal cancer in 2014. Her other brother, Kenny, also died years ago.
It is unclear what form of cancer Joyce was suffering from.
