Faith Hill: Rejoicing in Knowing

Singer Reflects on Her Mother's Passing

Faith Hill‘s mother Edna Perry died on Sunday (Oct. 30).

And on Tuesday (Nov. 1), after Perry was laid to rest in Mississippi, Hill posted her sentiments on social media.

“As you may have heard, my mom passed away on Sunday and was laid to rest this morning. While this is a difficult time for our family, we rejoice in knowing that she is in Heaven and no longer suffering. Thank you all for the kind words and prayers,” Hill wrote on Instagram.

Perry was 80 years old, and is survived by Ted, her husband of nearly 60 years. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Hill, her father and her brothers Wesley and Steve.

Memorials in Perry’s name can be sent to Star Baptist Church Children’s Wing Renovation.
