Cissy Houston Readies Whitney’s Funeral

Published: Tuesday 14th Feb 2012 by David

Last night, Cissy Houston– mother of Pop force Whitney Houston– was snapped at New Jersey’s Whingham Funeral Home, in preparation for the latter’s funeral.

Greeted by hoards of fans as she entered the building, the 78 year old belter’s sighting comes hours after Whitney’s body was flown to the state for burial.

This follows reports of a dispute within the family over the star’s burial spot, with some members citing Georgia as the more appropriate location, with it being the home of her Dutch and Native American ancestors.

However, as the above image confirms, Whitney will be laid to rest in her place of birth this Saturday.

    Poor Cissy looking a mess
    I don’t blame her though…

    Oh and the duet of Whitney and Cissy “I know him so well” is really fantastic, Cissy had a rich middle belt as well as a soaring classical soprano.

    It is not about finding a better pic. Her heart is ripped in parts and that is exactly how she looks. This is so sad, she is already so old and she has to experience all this at such an old age, i have a feeling she will pass away soon because her heart cant take it. She needs to survive though cause bobbi chris needs her.

    This is definitely sad, my heart goes out to the family. I pray for strength for Bobbing and Cissy. I agree this picture show the reality of this situation. I’m just so heart broken over this situation. Her music will live on after we are long gone. She has made and impact on millions. There is no more pain Whitney, may GOD hold you close and rest in peace.

    dutch and native american ancestors? this story sounds made up. RIP Whitney.

    It’s not made up. The Houston’s originated in Georgia. Jersey is Whitney’s home.

    This has been a grueling week. Cissy must be devasted and I’m certain Bobbi Kris must be having a hard time coping with everything as well. The Houston’s were a very close knit family and I’m praying that they find peace with this. My heart goes out to them. I just feel like I’m experiencing a tremendous loss right now myself, so I can only image their pain. I had alot of respect and love for Aaliyah and MJ, but losing Whitney hits home for me. I was a big fan. I’m just gratefu for all of their lives and their contributions to the world.

    R.I.P Whitney and God Bless that Family!

    Whitney’s daughter should pull RANK and ready the funeral. But, I guess, she is not in to state to handle doing that.

    I´m so glad fans were there suporting Cissy motherfucking Houston. What a mother, I´m sure she has gone through hell lots of times, and now at 79 years old having to suffer this??? I would probably die of the shock
    Love you Cissy! Best wishes for Bobbis Kristina
    And we´ll love you forever Queen WHITNEY HOUSTON

    My heart is BREAKING!!! I feel for her so much. God bless this family. Comfort them in their time of need. 🙁

    i can understand the family wanting the last hours with their loved one to be private. however, i hope they can find the strength to consider all the fans and those who may not have been hard core fans but still appreciated her for her hard work and accomplishments; also for kindness and humanity she showed toward others.

    maybe they could consider having the service televised (one camera) or having it audio piped to fans outside. however, if they unfortunately decide to do neither, it would be completely understandable.

    @ mrdiva…

    that may have been the best pic of whitney’s mother considering what this poor woman must be going thru. like some have said this shows an honest representation of only a fraction of what sh must be feeling.

    @ janetstan…

    I’m with you! this wanting her to be put to rest in georgia because of her heritage sounds totally made up. i’ve never heard whitney (or OF her or her mother) lauding on about any heritage other than african american.

    whitney and her family may have ancestors from georgia ( some from way back may have even been dutch or native american…a large number of blacks have native american ancestors ). however, i don’t believe for a single second that’s the reason her family was considering georgia for her resting place (if that’s even true). paul mooney ( if you know who he is) once said jokingly “when we get too big white people just take us”.

    To the inconsiderate idiots who talking about how Cissy Houston looks in the picture, THIS IS A PICTURE OF A MOTHER GOING THROUGH UNIMAGINABLE PAIN & HEARTBREAK!!! Some people can be complete assholes. My prayers are with you Cissy & your family. RIP WHITNEY 

    I say she’s her daughter and she has the right to do what she wants I don’t have any children of my own so I can’t explain how she’s feeling but the look on her face says she’s a mother who never wanted to bury a child of her own. She now has an emptiness just like Bobbi does that will never go away but time does heal all pain. So I say quit all this attention around the family especially after saturday and let the family grieve together in peace, she did nothing wrong God took her before the demons got to unbearable for her now she’s in a better place waiting for all her loved ones when it’s their time and she’s in heaven doing what she’s done for along time now Rest in Peace dear sweet Whitney one day we shall all meet again!!!

    I lost my Mom,which is no different than a Mom lose n her daughter. People R so simple-minded. It’s amaze n dis lady was strong enough to b able 2 take a picture. I experienced this type heart-ache & it took God 2 bring me through it. Instead of worry n about simple things, how about offer n a prayer dat Whitney made it to Heaven, dat her family will b sttrong, & most of all dat no one will cause anymore heartache on them

    So sad i still can’t believe such a woman like Whitney dies at just 48.

  19. Luka Baby February 17, 2012

    As much as I love her music and everything. If I hear her Mutha-Trucking name one more Mo-Fo Time… I am going scream. She wasn’t God, wasn’t the presidents wife and wasn’t a saint. Good Lord. People die every flippin day. Yeah were were all shocked and we all want to know if she died because of drugs so we can shake your “better than thou heads and say see”… But the test won’t be back for 4-6 weeks. Let the family and friends have their funeral and get off her n******. Good Lord… “You all have lost your always wanting to know somebody’s business” minds. She died, feel bad, cry or be sorry and let it go! PL-Lease!

    Dear Cissy,

    We understand your pain. Losing a child is very devastating to the soul. We’re all praying for you. Most importantly God is there for you. He will provide you with the strength and courage to get through this. Take care of yourself!
