KISS has announced that Paul Stanley’s mother, Eva Eisen passed away this past Saturday, September 29th, 2012 at the age of 88. Paul wrote of his mother’s passing:

“My mother found so much pleasure and fulfillment in all the various types of music that she so loved. It was through her that I too found that same passion. She lived long enough to see, enjoy and love an extended family that included her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She found numerous ways to contribute to her community and was appreciated and loved by those who knew her. My mom was the matriarch of our family and words cannot express our loss.”

May she rest in peace. Our thoughts and prayers and condolences to Paul and his family.
