Wynonna Judd is ‘angry’ at Mama Naomi’s death

It’s complicated. Wynonna Judd said she still has a range of emotions over her mother Naomi Judd’s death in April, including a deep anger.

“I got the call, and I walked over, and I saw her, and I said goodbye to her at the hospital, and I closed her eyes, and I kissed her forehead, and that was it,” said Wynonna, 58 CBS Sunday morning in a segment that aired Sunday, September 25. “And the next thing I know, I’m sitting here on the side porch just trying to figure out what’s coming next.”

In August, the autopsy announced that Naomi died at the age of 76 from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

“Per family, the deceased had prior suicidal thoughts and current life stressors. A gun and a note with suicidal connotations were found near the deceased at the scene,” the autopsy noted, revealing that Judd had a medical history of “significant” anxiety, bipolar disorder, chronic idiopathic pneumonitis, hepatitis C, hypertension, hypothyroidism, and had depression.

She’s struggled with mental illness for decades, and Wynonna explained during her CBS interview that she didn’t know her mother felt so desperate. “I didn’t know she was where she was when she finished it because she had episodes before and she was getting better,” said the Kentucky native. “And that’s what I live in: ‘Was there anything I should have looked for or should have known?’ Not me.”

When asked if she was angry while grieving the loss of her mother, Wynonna said she was “incredibly angry” and couldn’t imagine letting that emotion go “for a while.”

Naomi and Wynonna weren’t just mother and daughter; They were singing partners and formed the duo The Judds. The Grammy winners were planning a fall tour, which the ‘No One Else on Earth’ singer will embark on with the help of famous friends (including Martina McBride, Brandi Carlile and Kelsea Ballerinito name a few), but she expects to hold on to her fierce emotions at every concert.

“When I go on stage that first night, I’m probably going to say something like, ‘It’s not supposed to be like that,’ because it’s not, is it?” Wynonna said. “It should be both of us. And I’ll be angry because she’s not here.”

Other grudges, however, have disappeared. you and sister Ashley Judd put their differences aside. “We both kind of look at each other like ‘I got you,’ right? And we look at each other and say, ‘Yes.’ We’re so united now, I think more so than we’ve been in a long time.”

Despite her anger, the good memories Wynonna has of her mother always find their way back. “She took my hand and said, ‘My life is better because of you.’ Those are the memories that keep coming through,” Wynonna said. “I think when you lose your mother a lot of that crap goes away because it doesn’t matter anymore. It just doesn’t.”

If you or someone you know is experiencing emotional distress or is contemplating suicide, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 988.
