marcheline bertrand Angelina Jolie, James Haven's tributes to mom Marcheline Bertrand on anniversary of her death
French actress/model Marcheline Bertrand passed away three years ago today (Jan. 27) after a battle with cancer. Daughter Angelina Jolie and son James Haven have created a tribute website that includes home movies of them together in Hawaii, a clip reel of Marcheline from 1980 and various notes of remembrance from over the last three years.

Angelina’s godmother Jade Dixon says of Marcheline in her note, “She is the brightest star in the heavens. I will always be grateful for
this time on earth to have known her and look forward to seeing her
beautiful face again in heaven.”

Below is the tribute made from home movies from 1981.

It certainly is a nice way to remember their mother. You can easily see where Angelina got her good looks. Her mom was a real natural beauty.
