Viewers had a front row seat when real life struck reality star, Vicki Gunvalson, like a lightening bolt during an episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, last season. 

If you’ve ever received a phone call like that, you know how unprepared and unsettling bad news of this magnitude can be. A year has passed since her mother’s death and Vicki Instagrammed a touching tribute to her “amazing,” “fun” and “beautiful” mother, Joanne Closset Steinmetz

“1 year ago today, our family lost our amazing, fun, beautiful, classy talented mother & Nana. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t miss her & I hope she hears me when I speak to her in heaven,” Vicki wrote. “I lift our family up in prayer today as we mourn our beautiful Joanne. Life is not the same without you.”

Vicki also remembered her fellow costar, Shannon Beador, in her post since she was attending one of her game nights when she received the devastating news of her mother’s passing. 

“To @shannonbeador you hold a special place in my heart because I was at your home when I received that awful news,” Vicki also wrote in the post.

On February 4, 2015, Joanne Closset Steinmetz, passed away  at the age of 83 from unknown causes. Vicki wrote in her blog post published last July.

“She was the rock of our family – she was an amazing mother to all five children, and an amazing grandmother to five grandchildren, and to two beautiful great grandchildren, Owen and Troy,” 

“There isn’t a day that goes by where I don’t want to pick up the phone to ask her a question or tell her I love her. I miss her so much, but know one day I will be with her in Heaven and at peace.”
