White had been placed in a hospice care facility in Nashville on January 19th, according to a post made by her mother on Lari’s Caring Bridge page.
“Last night Lari was admitted to a wonderful Hospice facility here in Nashville, where she has all the Care she needs to make her comfortable and quiet for this part of the Journey, and where she is completely surrounded by loving family… Chuck, the children, her sister and brother, nephew and sisters-in-law, Mother and Father,” Yvonne White wrote.
“This Mother’s Heart is broken tonight for the horrendous illness that attacked our amazing daughter so viciously and quickly, as we know yours is, too. But tonight this Mother’s Heart is also filled with an abundance of love and comfort…and Peace that She has so much love surrounding her, and for the gentle, competent Care of Hospice.”
Lari first got her start in country music as the winner of You Can Be A Star in 1988. In 1993 White released her debut album Lead Me Not. But it was her sophomore album Wishes that earned White three Top 10 singles, “That’s My Baby,” “Now I Know” and “That’s How You Know (You’re In Love).”
This is according to country rebel.
Woke up this morning to the awful news of the passing of friend Lari White Cannon who lost her battle with cancer. I just don’t understand how on one cancer can be treated and another can’t. Lari was quite a woman full of life and talent. Prayers for Lari’s family, her children. #onlyGodknowswhy #cancersucks Will you pray?
