ALL ACCESS sends our condolences to TRISHA YEARWOOD and her family, after her mother GWEN YEARWOOD, passed away SATURDAY morning (10/1), in TIFTON, GA, due to a long fight with cancer. GWEN was 73, and according to a statement issued to the ASSOCIATE PRESS, TRISHA and her sister BETH were by their mother’s side.
This statement also said, “The family is deeply appreciative of the care and concern they've received throughout this journey.” Those who are interested in expressing sympathy are asked to direct their attention to the SUSAN G. KOMEN FOUNDATION, which helps fund breast cancer research, in GWEN’s name.
GWEN wrote two cookbooks with her daughters, “GEORGIA Cooking in an OKLAHOMA Kitchen,” in 2008 and “Home Cooking With TRISHA YEARWOOD,” in 2010.
