We are sadden to hear about the sudden and tragic death of 31-year-old Cory Monteith, the handsome Canadian musician and actor who since 2009 has been starring as Finn Hudson in Fox’ television series Glee. Cory is survived by his father Joe Monteith, brother Shaun and his beloved mother Ann McGregor.

Cory Monteith blessed the lives of those who knew him for 31 magical years, as you can imagine for a mother to lose her son in tragic no matter the circumstances of his death. Ann McGregor had two sons from her marriage to Joe Monteith, her eldest son  Shaun, 34 and Cory.

Her sons were just two little boys ages 10 and 7 when she and Joe got divorce, she took her sons to live with her in Victoria, British Columbia, things with her youngest didn’t go well, he began to resent the absence of his father and the straight A’s student began to use drugs and alcohol, eventually he quit school at the age of 15, his addiction was consuming him.

Ann didn’t just stood there and watch her son destroyed his life, so along  some of their closest friends she staged an intervention, Cory began a rehab program at 19 and by 2011 her son finally got his high school diploma.

Cory was found dead at his room on the 21st floor of the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel on Vancouver’s waterfront at about noon Saturday after  he failed to check out, police officers said Cory had been dead for several hours when he was found, no foul play is suspected, an autopsy is scheduled for Monday.

Cory’s 62-year-old mother Ann McGregor was born on May 01, 1951 in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada. Ann studied at Sudbury Secondary School and then studied to an interior decorator at Camosun College. Besides decorating Ann McGregor worked at Creating Homefulness – Woodwynn Farms.

Ann describes herself on Twitter as..

“Canadian mom, actor mom, designer/decorator,dancer, supporter of Woodwynn Therapeutic Farm in BC, and Close To Home(support for loved ones of people in need).”

Our thoughts and prayers go out to her throughout this terrible time.
