She was 90 years old.According to a statement to the Associated Press by Lynn’s family, the singer died in her home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee. “Our precious mom, Loretta Lynn, passed away peacefully this morning, October 4th, in her sleep at home in her beloved ranch in Hurricane Mills,” the statement said.Lynn was a longtime staple in country music, and the most awarded woman in the field.
