Marilyn Manson 's mother has passed away.  Barbara J. Warner  died from complications stemming from longterm dementia last Tuesday at the age of 68, in Canton, Ohio. 

Marilyn Manson -- whose real name is  Brian Warner  -- posted an atypically sweet tribute to his mom on  his Twitter feed , reading, "To my Mother, the first and greatest believer in me...I hope I see you again someday. But not now, because I have more things I promised I would do. I'll make you proud and satisfied that you know you made the son you wanted."

The funeral was private and Manson's family requests that donations be made in Barbara Warner's memory to the  Alzheimer's Foundation , at ALZ.org.
