Wednesday, 05 December 2012 02:16 PM EST

Dame Elisabeth Murdoch, News Corp owner Rupert Murdoch’s mother, died Wednesday at the age of 103.

She was surrounded by her family at her home at Cruden Farm in Australia, according to Fox News.

Murdoch had four children with her deceased husband Sir Keith Murdoch, including Rupert Murdoch, Anne Kantor, and Janet Calvert-Jones. Her oldest daughter, Helen Handbury, died in 2004.

In addition, she is survived by 77 direct descendents, including 50 great-grandchildren and six great-great grandchildren.

In addition to her son’s media empire, Murdoch was known in her own right for philanthropic work in the medical industry, the arts and social welfare.
