After a stroke and undergoing surgery, celebrated songstress Loretta Lynn decided to sell their Nashville family home, bought while she was still married to her husband, Oliver Lynn.

She recently commemorated their anniversary, saying: “We had 48 years together, and I sure wish he was still here! I miss him.”

Lynn passed away on October 4 at her home in Hurricane Mills

Loretta Lynn was one of country music’s most incredible legacies, famously known for her numerous hit songs that saw her dubbed “Queen of Country.” Since her voice hit the airwaves, her prolific and truthful songs remain as relevant as they did six decades ago, making her the most awarded lady in country music history.

But before her successful career, born out of a voice of strength, independence, and sometimes defiance, her life did not always look as glitz.

Vocalist Loretta Lynn performs during the 2011 Bonnaroo Music And Arts Festival on June 11, 2011 in Manchester, Tennessee.

Lynn was born in April 1932 to a coal miner father, Melvin Theodore Webb, and mother, Clara Marie, and grew up in a small cabin in a poor Appalachian coal-mining community in Butcher Hollow, Kentucky.

She passed away on October 4, 2022. Her family announced that she passed away peacefully in her sleep. They asked for privacy during this difficult time.

She married Oliver Vanetta Lynn, Jr, a few months before her 16th birthday, and the pair welcomed four children, all born before Lynn turned 20. They had their first child, daughter Betty Sue on November 26, 1948, followed by their son Jack Benny a year later.

Their third, Ernest Ray, was born on May 27, 1951, and Clara Marie on April 7, 1952. Following the birth of their fourth child, Lynn and her husband took a hiatus as Lynn focused on her music career, releasing her first hit single, “I’m a Honky Tonk Girl,” in 1960.
