Lucimarian Roberts, the mother of GMA co-host Robin Roberts, died over the weekend - just one day after the anchor announced she was taking a medical leave for a bone marrow transplant. Her 88-year-old mom died in Gulfport, Mississippi by her side.
Over the years, Lucimarian Roberts made numerous appearances with her daughter on "Good Morning America". She was a Gulf Coast icon for more than four decades, best known as the first African American to serve as chairman of the Mississippi State Board of Education in the 1980's.
