The tragic news came after Fallon cancelled a Nov. 3 taping of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon due to a “private Fallon family matter.”

A source revealed to PEOPLE at the time that Gloria was sick and that Fallon, 43, had gone to the hospital to be by her side.

Bravo host Andy Cohen was among the many others to remember Gloria and send support to Fallon over the weekend.

“Jimmy’s mom was full of energy, fun, a hearty laugh & twinkle in her eye,” he began. “The apple didn’t fall far from the tree. Love to all the Fallons.”

Actor Chris Kattan, too, spoke kindly of Gloria, calling her an “absolute sweetheart.”

“Whether it’s a friend or a fan, we’re all thinking about you. We love you Jimmy! @jimmyfallon,” he tweeted.

Although Fallon is known to keep his family life private, he’s shared funny stories and sweet moments about his mother over the years.

In June, he revealed to Howard Stern that his mother used to be a nun. A month earlier, he shared a memory about Gloria as part of a “#MomQuotes” segment for the talk show.

He tweeted, “My mom and I were talking on the phone for the third time that day and she actually said, ‘We don’t talk enough.’ ”
