Eva Jagger, mother of Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger, died May 18 in London, a month after she was hospitalized with a heart condition. She was 87.
Mrs. Jagger was last seen in public with her rock-star son in March at the opening of an arts center named in his honor at the grammar school he attended in Kent.
“People are always asking what it’s like to have a famous son,” she once said in an interview. “The answer is simple — to me, he’s just a son. I don’t think of him as a star.”
Mrs. Jagger and her husband would have celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary in December.
