Naomi Judd Cause Of Death, Obituary Unavailable Yet – Wynonna and Ashley Judd, Naomi Judd’s daughters, both sobbed during a ceremony to induct their late mother into the Country Music Hall of Fame, just 24 hours after her death. She was 76 years old at the time.
According to dailymail.co.uk, Judd died of ‘the disease of mental illness,’ according to her daughters, who had publicly disclosed her struggles with ‘severe depression.’ On Sunday, the duo quoted a biblical verse and expressed regret that Naomi Judd, who toured with Wynonna as ‘The Judds’ for years, had not lived long enough to accept the accolade.
Ashley Judd addressed the crowd, saying, “My mum loved you so much.” ‘And I’m sad she couldn’t hold on till today,’ she cried as she addressed the throng about her mother.
‘Your admiration and respect for her really touched her heart, and it was your affection for her that kept her going in the past years,’ she said, referring to her father and Naomi’s husband, Larry Strickland. ‘While this is mostly about The Judds as a duo, I’d like to take a moment to recognize my sister, who is a GOAT,’ she said.
