The Boston-born mother of nine became a household name thanks to her sons' A&E realitiy show. “It’s time to rest peacefully, mom,” Donnie Wahlberg wrote in tribute to his mom, who was a regular on Wahlburgers. “I love you, miss you, thank you and will celebrate you, today and always.” Mark Wahlberg tweeted: “My angel. Rest in peace." No cause of death was given, but Donnie Wahlberg posted last year about his mom's health struggles.
