"I turned out to be pretty bawdy, but I try never to be vulgar. She also believed that true joy comes from your relationship with God, which has been so important to me."

Just as critical was her mom's encouragement when it came to following her dreams.

"I left home when I was 17 years old to pursue my career, and [my parents] were all for it," Kathie Lee said last year. "They figured that they had raised me, and they wanted me to follow my passion. I've tried to do that with my own children. She gave me wings."

Joan Epstein was born in Brooklyn but moved to Washington, D.C. at the age of 2. She lost both her mother and a brother at a very young age and, later, her father to alcoholism. But her sad childhood never affected her sunny disposition, according to her daughter.

"She's a grateful person. And I always try to make her laugh when we talk in the morning," said Kathie Lee, who would call her mother every morning around 9 a.m. before she went on-air at TODAY.

Joan later met her husband, Aaron Epstein, while working at the Office of Naval Research. Her husband's military career led the family to cities throughout the world, including Paris, where Kathie Lee was born.

In addition to Kathie Lee, the couple also had a son, David, and another daughter, Michelle. The Epsteins raised their family just outside the nation's capital in the Maryland suburb of Bowie.

The siblings often joked about the way their mother mixed up her sayings.

"We call them Joni'isms. She couldn't get anything right then and she still can't," Kathie Lee once recalled. "But it's always been adorable in her."

One of the most important qualities her children learned from their mother was the importance of loved ones.

"Family is everything to her, her faith, her family, that's her life. That's her life," Kathie Lee said. "And I inherited a great deal of that from her."
