Faith Hill’s Mother Dies At 80
Faith Hill’s mother has died. She was 80.
According to her obituary, Edna Perry passed away at St. Dominic Hospital in Jackson, Miss. on Sunday. The cause of death has not been revealed, but her services were held this week.
Edna and Wesley Perry adopted Hill when she was an infant.
Hill once corrected Larry King when he asked about her “tough childhood.”
“I actually had a pretty amazing childhood,” Hill said. “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.”
“I was placed into an incredible home that I mean basically is responsible for the way I am today and the backbone that I have in order to do this for a living, which is a crazy, sometimes unstable world that this projects,” she continued.
“But the most important thing to me is about my family and that was definitely taught from my mom and dad.”
One of Hill’s biggest hits is about being from the Southern state.
