started: 07/12/12 10:56 pm | updated: 07/12/12 10:56 pm
Maria Hawkins Cole, widow of the great Nat King Cole, has passed away after a battle with cancer. A singer for Duke Ellington and Count Basie, she met and married Nat King Cole. Together they had Natalie, Timolin, and Casey Cole. Natalie continued in her parents footsteps and became and R&B performer.

In 1965 when her husband, the great Nat ‘King’ Cole, passed away, she created the Cole Cancer Foundation in his honor.

The three children released a statement saying “Our mom was in a class all by herself. She epitomized, class, elegance, and truly defined what it is to be a real lady. ... She died how she lived - with great strength, courage and dignity, surrounded by her loving family."

Services will be held in Glendale, California.
