GAC extends condolences to Loretta Lynn and her family on the passing of Loretta’s daughter, Betty Sue Lynn, this morning. NewsChannel5.com reports Loretta’s eldest daughter was 64 and died from complications of emphysema at her home in Waverly, Tenn. She is survived by two daughters, Lynn Markworth and Audrey Dyer, and five grandchildren.
“Loretta and her family thank friends and fans for their thoughts and prayers during this time of great loss,” said a publicist for the legend.
This is not the first time Loretta has faced the loss of a child. In 1984 her oldest son, Jack Benny Lynn, died at age 34.
