LORETTA Lynn shared a heartbreaking post about “coming into the light” just two days after her death at the age of 90.
The country music icon, best known for songs like Coal Miner’s Daughter, died Tuesday at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee, her family confirmed in a statement.
On Sunday, in her most recent social media post, she shared a quote from the Bible on Facebook.
She wrote: “Anyone who does evil hates the light and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed.
“But he who lives the truth comes to light to show that what he has done was done before God.”
The singer regularly shared updates of her life on Facebook, including pictures from her ranch and throwback pictures and performances from her acclaimed career.
On September 25, she celebrated the 60th anniversary of her debut on stage at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville.
“Time flies when you’re having fun! A dream came true 60 years ago when I became a member of the Grand Ole Opry. It’s still the most magical place on earth and holds so many wonderful memories for me!” she wrote.
Lynn also recently shared her 1988 appearance on Dolly Parton’s ABC variety show, writing, “It’s been fun watching this throwback that’s doing the rounds right now. Dolly Parton and I always have a great time together!”
Born in rural Butcher Hollow, Kentucky, Lynn’s legendary career spanned more than six decades after she burst onto the music scene in the early 1960s.
