Reba McEntire Mourns Death of Mom Jacqueline: 'She Had a Wonderful, Full, Healthy Life'

Reba McEntire‘s mom Jacqueline has sadly passed away.

The 64-year-old country star announced on Saturday (March 14) that her mom had died after a battle with cancer.

“Our Mother, Jacqueline McEntire, made that wonderful cross over into Heaven today,” Reba wrote Instagram. “She had a wonderful, full, healthy life and was absolutely ready to go. 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,” Reba 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. 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. Jackie, Jac, Ms McEntire, Mama, Mama Jac, Momo Jac, Grandma, Grandma Jac, whatever the title was at the time – she gave you her undivided attention. We’re all going to miss her but we have so many wonderful memories. Thank you Lord for that.”

Our thoughts are with Reba McEntire and her family during this difficult time.
