Actress Gwyneth Paltrow is mourning the loss of her paternal grandmother, who passed away last week (begs31Mar14).
Dorothy W. Paltrow died on 31 March (14) in Florida, according to The Palm Beach Post.
She was the mother of late director Bruce Paltrow, who passed away in 2002.
The sad news comes less than two weeks after her famous granddaughter announced her split from husband Chris Martin in late March (14).
The actress is trying to stay positive amid all the bad news - she posted her first tweet since the break-up announcement on Sunday (06Apr14), and steered followers to an Instagram photo she took during a recent family vacation in the Exuma Islands of the Bahamas.
She captioned the shot of a perfect ocean blending with a cloudless sky, "No line on the horizon."
Paltrow and Martin jetted off to the Bahamas with their kids after announcing they had split on 25 March (14).
