Vernita Lee, the mother of tv presenter and entrepreneur Oprah Winfrey, on Thursday at the age of 83 died.
That confirms the family of Lee Monday to TMZ.
Vernita and Vernon Winfrey (85) were in 1954, parents of Oprah and lived in Mississippi. Shortly after her birth they went out together. The presenter was in her younger years, though not by them raised, because Vernita due to work had to move to Milwaukee. Winfrey lived, therefore, temporarily with her grandmother.
