The Rev. Al Sharpton’s mom has died at the age of 87.

Ada Sharpton (seen below in the middle) passed away early Thursday morning in Dothan, Alabama, following a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

Sharpton’s spokeswoman Rachel Noerdlinger says Sharpton will fly to Alabama to make arrangements for his mother’s funeral after attending a rally Thursday evening in Sanford, Fla., for Trayvon Martin.

Martin is the black teen who was shot to death by a Hispanic neighborhood watch captain in Florida.

Sharpton learned of his mother’s death while boarding the flight to Florida Thursday morning.
