[ # ] RIP Naomi Judd
April 30th, 2022 under Obits, The Judds

Ashley and Wynonna Judd announced today that their mother, Naomi passed away today at the age of 76. “Today, we sisters experienced a tragedy. We lost our beautiful mother to the disease of mental illness. We are shattered. We are navigating profound grief and know that as we loved her, she was loved by her public. We are in unknown territory.”

2022 was supposed to be an excellent year for The Judds. Naomi and Wynonna were going to hit the road in September for a final tour. They recently reunited and played the CMT Awards, much delight to their fans. And tomorrow, they were going to be inducted into the County Music Hall of Fame.

In 2016, the singer released her book River of Time: My Descent into Depression and How I Emerged with Hope. Sometimes when a depressed person is full of so much hope and joy to look forward to, it has the opposite effect on them. I am not saying that is the case, but that was my first thought when I heard of her passing.

Depression is an evil thing that takes over everything, and it is impossible once again to get control of yourself. Even the happiest of things make you sad.

Hopefully, now Naomi is at peace and truly happy. My heart goes out to her husband, Larry Strickland, daughters, and grandchildren.
