The Locket contained a photograph of her late mother, Marcheline Bertrand. Angelina's mother, whom she adored, died of ovarian cancer in 2007 at the age of just 56. Brad and Angelina had been dating for two years. But Marcheline did not live long enough to see the couple marry or to meet their brood.
