Reba McEntire’s Mother Passes Away From Cancer at Age 93, Funeral Postponed Indefinitely

Reba’s loving tribute is truly touching. Please pray for her and her family.

Reba is mourning the loss off her mother, Jacqueline McEntire.

The country music legend’s mom passed away this past Saturday, and Reba shared the news as well as a loving tribute on her Instagram account.

“Our Mother, Jacqueline McEntire, made that wonderful cross over into Heaven today. She had a wonderful, full, healthy life and was absolutely ready to go,” she said. “The cancer might think it won the battle but we’re giving God all the credit on selecting the time for her to go home to Him. She was ready to see our Daddy, her mama and daddy and all her family and friends.”

She continued.

“Down here, Alice, Pake, Susie and I, grandkids and great grandkids all got to visit with her either in person or over the phone. She left knowing how much she is loved and we all know how much she loved us,” she said. “We are very thankful for all the prayers, cards, calls, visits, the care-givers with their huge hearts, and the time God gave us with Mama.”

Reba had to make an incredibly difficult decision on Monday.

The country music star announced on twitter that she and her family will “indefinitely postpone” her mother Jacqueline’s funeral and burial out of an abundance of caution amid the United States’ virus outbreak.

“After much thought and careful consideration among our family, we have decided to indefinitely postpone Mama’s funeral and burial at this time. We will continue to monitor the situation and let you know as soon as possible about future plans to celebrate her life,” she confirmed.

McEntire also recently postponed her tour amid coronavirus concerns.
