Wonderwall Logo By Wonderwall.com Editors of Wonderwall | Slide 1 of 200: Wonderwall.com is taking a look back at the bold-faced names we lost in 2020, starting with this actress... The news came as a shock to fans, as Kelly Preston's illness had not been revealed publicly, but "On the morning of July 12, 2020, Kelly Preston, adored wife and mother, passed away following a two-year battle with breast cancer," a family representative told People magazine. The actress known for her work in films including "SpaceCamp," "Twins," "Jerry Maguire, "For Love of the Game," "The Cat in the Hat" and many others -- was 57. "Choosing to keep her fight private, she had been undergoing medical treatment for some time, supported by her closest family and friends," the rep continued. "She was a bright, beautiful and loving soul who cared deeply about others and who brought life to everything she touched." Kelly's husband of 28 years, actor John Travolta, shared the sad news on Instagram too, praising his love's "courageous fight." Actress daughter Ella Travolta mourned her mother on social media, writing in part, "Thank you for your love. Thank you for your help and thank you for making this world a better place. You have made life so beautiful and I know you will continue to do so always. I love you so much mama.❤️." Kelly also leaves behind son Benjamin; son Jett preceded her in death in 2009.
