The mother of a former “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star has died. On December 17, 2022, Camille Meyer (nee Grammer) announced the death of her mom, Maureen Wilson Donatacci, on Instagram.
“My mom gained her angel wings today. She was a strong beautiful warrior who fought to the very end. Her strength and endurance was an inspiration to so many. She lived her life to the fullest.

Meyer’s Mom Had Been Battling Cancer for Several Years
Donatacci was previously diagnosed with cancer. Meyer revealed her mom’s health decline in an Instagram caption she shared in November 2021.
“Take the time to hug your loved ones. My mother has been suffering and battling kidney cancer for many years. I’m so blessed to be able to see her and spend quality time with her. I love you so much mom,” Meyer wrote.
In September 2022, Meyer shared another update about her mother in honor of her 75th birthday.
“She was first diagnosed at the age of 47 with stage 3 ovarian cancer. With the help of her amazing doctors she is still with us. Her 75th birthday is on the 19th of September. Bless her for not giving up years ago,” Meyer wrote at the time. She went on to encourage people to speak to their doctors if they notice something isn’t right. “Don’t forget your annual Check ups,” she added.
In a statement shared with People magazine, a rep for Meyer said that Donatacci died “peacefully at her home in New Jersey this morning surrounded by family,” and confirmed that she had “succumbed after a long and courageous fight with cancer.”
“Camille and her [mother] were both afflicted with ‘genetic’ cancers and were warriors for the cause for the past decade,” the rep added. Meyer has previously battled cancer twice.
