Country singer Chely Wright is mourning the death of her mother.

The star jetted to Kansas with her wife, Lauren Blitzer, and their kids to be by her mum's side before she passed away on Wednesday (14May14) following a battle with cancer.

Wright reveals she and her mum were able to put their differences aside during her final days and is glad the children were able to meet their grandmother.

In a post on her page, she writes, "It is with a heavy heart that I share the news of my mother's passing. After a brief battle with cancer, my mom died on Wednesday night in hospice care. I feel tremendously grateful to have spent a lot of time with her in the final weeks of her life.

"My wife and I travelled back to Kansas with our boys and we had a wonderful visit with my mother. She fell in love with Lauren, George and Everett at first sight. My mother and I both acknowledged and enjoyed the miracle of healing and reconciliation. She will be deeply missed by many."
