Wynonna Judd's Last Instagram Post Before Naomi's Death Leaves Everyone In Tears

Wynonna Judd made the heartbreaking call to announce her mom Naomi Judd's death in a joint statement with her sister Ashley on Saturday. "Today we sisters experienced a tragedy," they said (via Associated Press). "We lost our beautiful mother to the disease of mental illness. We are shattered. We are navigating profound grief and know that as we loved her, she was loved by her public. We are in unknown territory."


The star thought she would be planning to be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame this weekend — not grieving her mom. In fact, this tragic turn of events happened so quickly, Wynonna's last Instagram post reveals she had no way of knowing her mother would not make it to the milestone event.

"Can't think of a better way to be welcomed to our new home at the @officialcmhof than by the fans," Judd posted to her Instagram on Friday. "Looking forward to seeing your sweet faces along the red carpet on Sunday!" Along with the caption, the 57-year-old shared a sweet photo of herself with Naomi, clearly taken earlier in their tenure as The Judds.

Fans take to Instagram to share their condolences

That The Judds were to be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame was no surprise for their fans. After all, the mother-daughter duo had 14 number one hits to their name. While we don't yet know how the planned ceremony will proceed without Naomi Judd, fans are now seeing Wynonna's last Instagram post in a totally new light.


Instead of expressing excitement over the induction, friends and fans are using the post as a means to share their condolences with the grief-stricken daughter. "My heart is hurting for you," songwriter Caroline Dare commented in part on the post. So many other commenters shared how they were praying for Judd's family and sending love her way. Endless commenters also said how touched they were by The Judds' music.

Celebrity friends, such as Reese Witherspoon and Shailene Woodley, as well as fans also took to Ashley Judd's Instagram, where she posted the statement about her mother's death, to share their condolences.
