Country music legend Loretta Lynn died on October 4 at the age of 90. She was laid to rest three days later (October 7) during a private service held on her ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee.
The Lynn family has plans to host a public memorial for Loretta at a later date.
“A public memorial is being planned,” said family spokesperson Ebie McFarland. “The family did have a private ceremony Friday with no other details available to share at this time.”

Loretta’s daughter, Patsy, shared an emotional post reflecting on her mother’s funeral. She said:
“Today we said goodbye for now. It was both heartbreaking and beautiful. I am so thankful for all the moments with her. I feel so blessed to know with not one shadow of doubt she is with the Lord and is so excited to be there.”
Patsy received lots of sympathetic comments from her followers.
Stella Parton said, “So perfectly beautiful in every sense of the word. My tears are with you honey and all of her precious babies. Love to all of you.”
“I love you and love her always,” wrote John Carter Cash.
Brandy Clark responded with a simple message containing a red heart emoji and a raised hands emoji.
