Reba McEntire's mother, Jacqueline, has passed away at the age of 93.

The famous country singer announced the news on social media by posting a beautiful tribute.

The caption read, "Our Mother, Jacqueline McEntire, made that wonderful cross over into Heaven today," McEntire posted. "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."

McEntire also thanked everyone for the prayers, calls, cards, and visits. The country singer also said that her mother had many names like Momo, Grandma, Jac, and Grandma Jac.

"We're all going to miss her, but we have so many wonderful memories," the singer shared. "Thank you, Lord, for that."

In response to McEntire's post, Martina McBride and Kristin Chenoweth offered their condolences.

"We are all sending so much love to you and your family Reba. What an amazing lady your mama raised. A testament to HER," Chenoweth commented. "Praying for you and your family Reba. Love you," McBride wrote.

Instead of flowers, McEntire asked for memorials to be sent to the Reba McEntire Fund to benefit the Jacqueline McEntire Library Fund.
