Reba McEntire has been waiting more than a year to allow friends and family to formally honor her late mother, Jacqueline McEntire.

McEntire’s mother died after battling cancer on March 14, 2020, at the age of 93, and the family originally put off a memorial service, due to COVID-19 safety concerns.

The country star shared a post to social media on Thursday, August 5, 2021, in which she explained that the family has chosen to postpone the memorial service that was planned for Sunday, August 8, 2021.

McEntire had announced back in 2020 that the family had decided to hold off on a memorial service.

“After much thought and careful consideration among our family, we have decided to indefinitely postpone Mama’s funeral and burial at this time. We will continue to monitor the situation and let you know as soon as possible about future plans to celebrate her life,” she wrote.

Once the family felt safe they decided they should do something to honor her. However, with recent COVID spikes in their county, they decided it was best to wait even longer.

“If and when we are able to honor our Mama, we will let you know,” the country star wrote.
