Reba McEntire's mom, Jacqueline McEntire, passed away on March 14 at the age of 93. The country singer shared the news about her mother 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. 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's father, Clark McEntire died back in 2014 when he was 86 years old.

"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," Reba continued on her Instagram post. "We are very thankful for all the prayers, cards, calls, visits, the caregivers with their huge hearts, and the time God gave us with Mama."

Many other country singers, like Luke Bryan and Martina McBride, commented on Reba's post to share their condolences with her and her family.
