There’s a Devil Loose in Families: Anne Heche Came Out of a Very Sad and Tragic Family. Anne Heche’s Father Was a Down-low (Secret) Homosexual Who Died of AIDS. Anne Heche Tragically Lost Three Siblings to Death Before She Died. Anne Heche’s Mother is a Christian Who Happens to be a Psychologist and Was Against Her Daughter Anne Coming Out as a Lesbian With Ellen DeGeneres. They Had a Great Falling-out Over it, and Anne Heche Died Without Them Making Peace With Each Other and Saying “I Love You” to Each Other.

Anne Heche‘s Christian psychologist mother, 85, had already survived three of her five children, and her husband, prior to the tragic death of her actress daughter on Friday.

The Six Days, Seven Nights star was pronounced dead on August 12 at the age of 53 – a week after she was involved in multiple car crashes. Heche first slammed into a garage at an apartment building, then careened into a home in her blue Mini Cooper leaving her ‘severely burned’ and ‘intubated’ in a hospital.

It was nothing new for the Heche clan -Anne’s family has been beset with tragedy, beginning with the death of her sister Cynthia Heche in infancy due to a heart condition, secretly-gay patriarch Donald Heche dying from AIDS in 1983, and later that same year and brother Nathan Heche was killed in a car accident in New Jersey at 18.
