Helen Reddy

On Tuesday, Pete’s Dragon star Helen Reddy passed away at 78 years old. Reddy had played Nora, the woman who later goes on to adopt Pete in the film.

Yesterday, her children made a statement on her official fan page that said

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Helen Reddy, on the afternoon of September 29th 2020 in Los Angeles. She was a wonderful Mother, Grandmother and a truly formidable woman. Our hearts are broken. But we take comfort in the knowledge that her voice will live on forever.
In 2015, Helen Reddy was diagnosed with dementia but it is unclear the cause of her passing at this time. Her ex-husband Jeff Wald noted in an Instagram post that
“It is with great sadness that I must announce that my first wife of 18 years and the mother of my two eldest children, Helen Reddy, passed suddenly and peacefully at the Motion Picture and Television Home today”
It is with great sadness that we announce her passing and, like her family, we take comfort in the fact that her legacy will live on through the music and films she was part of during her life.
