    Kourtney Kardashian has paid tribute to her Aunt Karen Houghton almost a month after her death

    The 45-year-old reality star - who doesn't often reference extended family members on social media - shared an emotional childhood picture of her mother Kris Jenner's sister, who died on March 18 aged 65


    Taking to her Instagram Story, she shared a snap of herself as a toddler in the harms of her Auntie Karen, which she captioned with heart and angel wing emojis.

    Last week, it was reported that Houghton died from "cardiac arrest and sudden cardiac arrhythmia".

    According to TMZ, her death certificate also listed Type 2 diabetes as a secondary underlying cause.

    Kris announced her sister's death with an heartfelt post on Instagram in March.

    She wrote: "It is with the heaviest heart and deepest sadness that I share that my sister Karen passed away yesterday unexpectedly.

    "My heart aches for my mom MJ (Mary Jo) and my niece Natalie and I pray that God guides us all through this difficult time. Karen was beautiful inside and out."

    Kris also hailed her late sister as the "sweetest, kindest, the most sensitive and vulnerable" person who she said was also "so so funny".

    She added: "She always felt grateful and thankful for her life and treasured her family and friends and especially her beautiful daughter."

    Adding that Karen holds a "huge part of (my) heart", she said: "I cherish every single memory we have together."

    Kris concluded her message with the lines: "Karen's passing is a reminder that life is so short and precious and tomorrow is never promised.

    "We must tell those we cherish how much we love them. I love you my beautiful sister."

    And, Natalie explained that her mother's death happened "so quickly".

    She posted: "Dear Mommy, I can't believe your gone. This doesn't even feel real. I keep hoping that I will get to hug you or kiss you or hear your voice one last time.

    "You were my best friend, my everything. The best mother a daughter could ever ask for and I'm so grateful to have had a mother like you.

    "You were the most kind, sweet, loving, giving, and caring soul. You had the biggest heart.

    "And I don't know how to go on without you. It all happened so quick [and] I wasn't ready for you to go.

    "An angel was sent to heaven on March 18th, 2024. I love you mommy and you will forever be missed."
