Reynolds died on Dec. 28, one day after her daughter and Lourd's mother, Carrie Fisher, died.

Billie Lourd took a moment to remember her late grandmother Debbie Reynolds on Saturday, April 1, which would have been the actress' 85th birthday.

The Scream Queens actress posted a photo to her Instagram account of Reynolds, dressed in green, and her late mother (and Reynolds' daughter), Carrie Fisher. Lourd captioned the shot, "Happy 85th to my constantly classily clad Abadaba."

In January, Lourd used Instagram to make her first public statement since the deaths of her grandmother and mother, one day apart, in the last week of December 2016. In that post, the young actress also referred to Reynolds as her "Abadaba."

"Receiving all of your prayers and kind words over the past week has given me strength during a time I thought strength could not exist," she wrote. "There are no words to express how much I will miss my Abadaba and my one and only Momby. Your love and support means the world to me."

Lourd also reportedly delivered eulogies for both Fisher and Reynolds at their joint private memorial service in January. A public memorial was held last week.

Reynolds, the Oscar-nominated actress who shot to fame after starring in Singin' in the Rain, died on Dec. 28 after being briefly hospitalized. Her daughter, Fisher, died the day before after suffering a medical emergency on Dec. 23 on a flight from London. The mother-and-daughter duo were reportedly buried together.

Lourd is the daughter of Fisher and talent agent Bryan Lourd.
