Sarah Silverman paid tribute on Twitter to her mom, Beth O'Hara, with an emotional message and a photo of her mom. O'Hara died Wednesday, Silverman wrote.
"The woman who, when I was little, gave me detailed directions to a restaurant ladies room then secretly watched as I found my way to it on my own," she continued. "The woman who went back to college at 42, and skinny dipped in ponds, and told me never to protect myself from a broken heart because it was so very worth the pain to get to experience love."
O'Hara, who was 73, produced and directed for more than 50 years throughout her career, People reported.
