As this outlet exclusively reported, Lynn had all the arrangements planned prior to her death.

“Loretta wants to turn most of her physical holdings into cash so she doesn’t burden her kids and grandkids with having to sell off stuff when she’s gone,” a family friend spilled last week.

“But even more, she wants to plan her own memorial service so the day will go EXACTLY as she wants!”

Lynn wanted to be laid to rest next to her late husband, Mooney, in addition to her children, Jack Benny and Betty Sue, at the family cemetery.

"And that's where Loretta wants her memorial service to be," the insider noted. "She wants all of her fans to be able to attend, and there's plenty of room at the ranch. Loretta has already asked her performing children and grandchildren to take the stage at her farewell event. She also wants lifelong friends such as Dolly Parton to help send her off in style."

The Coal Miner's Daughter songstress had previous health issues, as she suffered a stroke in 2017 and broke her hip one year later.

Prior to her passing, Lynn spent time on her Nashville ranch so she could be closer to "medical care."

“Loretta has mobility problems from her 2017 stroke and her mind gets foggy,” the friend explained. “But her beautiful singing voice is still intact. She’s trying to record some final songs she hopes will live forever. She is a very brave soul. Loretta doesn’t fear the eventual end. In fact, she’s actively planning for it.”

Despite the health woes, the star shared how she was doing a few years back.

"I feel great,'' she said on the Today show in 2019. "I feel so good that I'm ashamed to even say I feel so good."

TMZ was the first to report the news about Lynn's death.
