Naomi Judd's daughter‚ Ashley‚ has taken to social media to pay tribute to her mother. A representative for the Judd family has not responded to reports of her death. During the last few years‚ Judd had been open about her struggle with depression and co-dependency. She also volunteered with Mental Health America of the MidSouth‚ a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping people in their time of need. Judd had been clinically depressed since the age of eight‚ and her mother had recently announced that she had been diagnosed with hepatitis C.
