- Reba McEntire's mom, Jacqueline McEntire, has died from cancer.
- She was 93 years old.
Reba McEntire is mourning the loss off her 93-year-old mother, Jacqueline McEntire.
The “Fancy” singer’s mom passed away on Saturday, and Reba shared the news as well as a loving tribute on Instagram.
“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 to explain that her extended family was fortunate enough to say their goodbyes. Reba also expressed gratitude for all the messages she’s since received.
“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.”
In addition to being a loving mother, Jacqueline was also Reba’s biggest supporter. According to The Oklahoman, she even shared a writer’s credit with Reba on her gospel album, Sing It Now: Songs of Faith and Hope.
In lieu of flowers, Reba and her family are asking for memorials to be sent to the Reba McEntire Fund to benefit the Jacqueline McEntire Library Fund. Donations can be made here.
