Billie Christine Doan Gatlin, mother of the Gatlin Brothers, passed away Friday night at the age of 88. 
Larry, Steve, and Rudy Gatlin, the Gatlin Brothers, announced their mother’s passing via a statement that read:  
“On behalf of our father, William Wayne “Curley” Gatlin, our sister, La Donna Gatlin Johnson, and a whole ‘gang’ of grandkids and great grandkids, we sadly, but joyfully announce the HOMEGOING of our mother, Billie Christine Doan Gatlin. Our mother went to heaven on Friday night at 11:30pm. We loved her, we will cherish our memories of her, and we will see her again. HALLELUJAH TO THE RISEN LORD!!” 
Billie Doan Gatlin was born on December 21, 1928, in Megargel, Texas. She played a vital role in the success of her sons when they started performing together 62 years ago. She was often seen at the piano as her sons performed in church, on television and radio shows, and in live concerts. 
She is survived by her husband of 70 years, William Wayne “Curley” Gatlin, three sons and a daughter, Larry, Steve, Rudy and La Donna, nine grandchildren, and 16 great grandchildren (with another on the way).

Our prayers are with the Gatlin family.
