He said that one of his sisters and his nephew were with her “until the end” as well the “wonderful nurses who she entertained with tales from her life and much laughter over glasses of whisky.”
Further detailing Eve’s life, Branson wrote that his mom taught his siblings the “importance of hard work, of not taking yourself too seriously, of treating people how you wish to be treated, of entrepreneurship, and so much more.”
The British billionaire said she was “always working on a project” when he was young and that she was “inventive, fearless, relentless — an entrepreneur before the word existed.”
Branson’s father died in 2011. Together, they had three kids including his sister’s Lindy and Vanessa.
