Ms. Loretta’s health took a significant decline after she suffered a stroke and broke her hip in 2017, which forced her to stop touring after an impressive 57 years.

Just days before her passing, on September 25, Loretta celebrated her 60th anniversary of becoming a member of Country's prestigious Grand Ole Opry.

"Time flies when you're having fun!" she tweeted along with photos spanning her years as an Opry member. "60 years ago a dream came true when I became a member of the Opry. It's still the most magical place in the world and holds so many wonderful memories for me!"

Many of Lynn's fellow Opry members, Country artists and more flooded social media with tributes to the pioneer. See some of them below:
