The world of horror is remembering a legend of the genre tonight.. Betsy Palmer–best known by fans as the woman who played JASON VORHEES’ mother in Friday the 13th 1 and 2–passed away at the age of 88 Friday night of natural causes..

Her longtime manager, Brad Lemack said that Palmer went into the next realm while in hospice care center in Connecticut.

Palmer had appeared in films, on Broadway and in TV shows for decades before she took the role of Mrs. Voorhees. She would say in later years that she only took the role in that first film because she wanted the money to buy a new car

Her LEGACY website is already filling up with memories..
And most horror fans will hold a special place in their hearts for the woman who just loved her son, no matter the monster he was..
