Faith Hill is mourning the loss of her mother. Faith’s mother, Edna Perry passed away Sunday at the age of 80 in Jackson, Mississippi. Edna’s obituary says that she is survived by her husband of 59 years, two sons, her daughter, seven grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, two sisters and her brother.
According to “Taste of Country” Edna and her husband, Wesley “Ted” Perry, adopted Faith Hill when she was just a few days old. During a 2006 interview with Larry King he asked her about her “tough childhood.” Faith responded with “I actually had a pretty amazing childhood, I was adopted, if that’s what you’re referring to, but my family, my mom and my dad and my brothers, they are amazing, very stable, good Christian, God-fearing home, and a great small town of Star, Mississippi. I actually had a really stable childhood.”
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Faith and her family.
