Nicole Murphy is mourning the loss of her mother, Ellen Mitchell, who she said passed away on Monday (November 4).
The mother of five shared the heartbreaking news with her followers on Instagram, detailing Mitchell's death in the caption of a photo with her late parents.
"Today I lost the most beautiful person in the world to me: my mom," she wrote. "I love you so much. Thank you for all the beautiful times we had together. Now you can rest in peace with Dad."
In another post, Murphy went down memory lane with a series of photos showing her mother through the years.
