Reba said, “she was ready to see our Daddy, her mama and daddy and all her family and friends.” 

Now, the McEntire family has been forced to make a very difficult decision about their mother’s final arrangments amid the worldwide Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak.

We will continue to monitor the situation and let you know as soon as possible about future plans to celebrate her life when it is safe for everyone to attend.

Thank you all for the calls, cards, thoughts and prayers for our family at this difficult time.”
