Recent Country Music Hall of Fame inductee Bonnie Brown Ring has died following a courageous battle with lung cancer. The 77-year old was a member of the family trio The Browns along with her sister, Maxine, and brother, Jim Ed who died last year of a similar disease.
The news of Bonnie’s passing was shared on Facebook a short time ago by legendary country songwriter and DJ and family friend of the Browns, Bill Mack.
Bonnie was placed in critical care two weeks ago after suffering complications of lung cancer.
A post made to Jim Ed Brown’s official Facebook page on Saturday (July 2) requested prayer for Bonnie.
“The Brown Family is reaching out to ask you all to pray for Bonnie. Bonnie is the younger sister of Jim Ed and she is in critical care battling lung cancer. She experienced complications from a blood clot and we hope you will all lift her up in prayer. Thank you in advance.”
The Browns were elected into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2015 and were best known for their 1959 hit song “The Three Bells.”
Our deepest condolences to Bonnie Brown’s family and friends at this time.
