Betty Sue Lynn died from complications of emphysema at her home in Waverly. She was 64.
She is survived by two daughters, Lynn Markworth and Audrey Dyer, and five grandchildren. A publicist said “Loretta and her family thank friends and fans for their thoughts and prayers during this time of great loss.”
Loretta Lynn, known as the “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” turned 81 in April. She married her late husband at age 15, and they had six children. In 1984, she previously lost her eldest son, Jack Benny, at age 34.
