After the news of her wife's death made news, Kathryn took to Twitter to mourn the loss of her wife.

She first shared an intimate picture as they relaxed at a California beach together.

In the pic, the Gone Girl actress smiled at the camera as she rocked sunglasses, a hat, a red scarf around her neck, and dark blue top.

Along with the pic, she wrote: "Love and light."

She then shared a pic of the two of them under the Brooklyn bridge with the sunset making a stunning appearance behind the New York City skyline.

In the pic, Lisa rocked heart-shaped sunglasses as her wife called her: "My Lisa. Our Lisa Banes. Our huge loss."

The widow then shared another stunning picture of Lisa in a yellow blazer and standing in front of a painting.

Kathryn joined the many celebs and friends who mourned the loss of the actress after she was run over by a scooter in NYC.

On June 5, Lisa was left in critical condition with a "traumatic brain injury" after a scary hit-and-run crash in NYC. 

Paramedics quickly rushed to the scene, where Lisa was on the ground with "severe head trauma," according to the publication.

The outlet reported she was on her way to meet her wife, Kathryn, for a dinner party near the Lincoln Center when a red and black scooter hit her while “blowing through” a red light. 

The driver then allegedly fled the scene – which took place at the crosswalk on West 64th and Amsterdam Avenue – and is currently being sought by police. 

Since Lisa was inside the crosswalk, she “had the right of way,” law enforcement said. 

In footage of the scene of the crime obtained by The Sun, NYPD officers can be seen taping up the intersection with caution tape.

The officers are also seen using measuring poles - presumably to accurately detect how far Lisa was flown into the air after being hit.

The TV and film star lived in Los Angeles but was visiting New York City for the first time since the pandemic.

Sadly, after a week of uncertainty, Lisa passed away from her injuries.

Her representative told ET on Monday: “We’re are heartsick over Lisa’s tragic and senseless passing.

“She was a woman of great spirit, kindness, and generosity and dedicated to her work, whether on stage or in front of a camera and even more so to her wife, family and friends.

"We were blessed to have had her in our lives.”

Lisa has had a movie and television career which has gone one for decades.

Her first acting credit was playing the mom in 1984's The Hotel New Hampshire starring Rob Lowe and Jodie Foster.

In the years since, her career has stayed active with roles on major TV shows such as Nashville, Masters Of Sex, Royal Pains and The Orville.

She most famously appeared in the 2014 blockbuster hit, Gone Girl, playing Marybeth Elliott - the mom of Rosamund Pike's character.

Lisa acted alongside Ben Affleck for most of the film - who played the character of the husband in the missing spouse thriller.

She also played Tom Cruise’s older love interest in the 1988 flick, Cocktail.
