Naomi Judd was an American singer-songwriter and actress. In 1983, she and her daughter Wynonna formed the duo known as The Judds.
The 76-year-old mother-daughter duet of The Judds’ legendary country performer Naomi Judd took her own life on Saturday after a long struggle with mental illness.
For Mental Health Awareness Week in 2018, Naomi penned an open letter to all those who are concerned about their mental health.
In her 2016 book, River of Time: My Descent into Depression and How I Emerged with Hope, the country performer revealed that she had been suicidal.
When Naomi and 57-year-old Wynonna joined forces as mother-daughter duo The Judds, they had 14 number-one hits, among them “Mama He’s Crazy,” “Why Not Me,” “Turn It Loose,” and “Change of Heart.” Additionally, they received five Grammy Awards, nine CMA Awards, and seven ACM Awards.
It was also on Sunday that Wynonna attended the event to accept the Judds’ induction into Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame and offered a tearful but composed speech.
It has been a difficult time for the family of Naomi Judd since her death. Wynonna and Ashley Judd were at the Country Music Hall of Fame Medallion Ceremony just one day after her passing on Saturday (April 30) to celebrate the Judds’ induction on Sunday (April 31). (May 1).
Ashley Judd documented her emotional weekend with a series of images and videos on Instagram, which you can see here.
Judd also provided some personal images of the family’s meeting at her house to commemorate their matriarch, in addition to the photos from the event.
