Naomi Judd left her two daughters, Winona and Ashley of her own free will

Country singer Naomi Judd has left her two daughters, Winona and Ashley, out of her control.

Instead, she appointed Larry Strickland, her husband of 33 years, as executor of her property. He will have “full power and discretion” over its assets “without the approval of any court”.

Judd shot herself in an upstairs room of her Tennessee home on April 30 after a long battle with her mental health.

She prepared her will in November 2017, nearly five years before her death, and she was “sane of mind and throwing off memory” when she approved the document.

Judd was a member of country music duo The Judds, along with her eldest daughter, Wynonna, 58, who is said to be upset at will.

Judd’s will states that Strickland is entitled to “reasonable compensation” for his services as an executor, according to a document reviewed by Page Six.

He may also be paid or reimbursed for “reasonable expenses, advances and payments, including attorney’s and accountant’s fees, made or incurred in the administration of my estate.”

The document also states that if Strickland cannot be an executor of the estate due to death or any other cause, Judd’s brother-in-law, Reginald Strickland, and president of the Tennessee law firm Wiatr & Associates will act as co-executors.

Representatives for Wynonna and Ashley, 54, did not immediately respond to DailyMail.com’s requests for comment.

However, a source close to Winona told Radar Online that the singer is angry that she was left out of Judd’s will and “believes she was a major force behind her mother’s success.”

The duo was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame one day after Judd’s death was announced.

The sisters gave no indication of the tensions with their mother, having paid tribute to her after her death and openly discussing their struggles during the grieving process.

The two girls also had homes on the 1,000-acre Judd ranch in the greater Nashville area, which they have owned for nearly three decades. It’s unclear if the Winona and Ashley properties are considered part of Judd’s estate.

Ashley remembered “the various behavioral expressions, the interactions, the flights of fancy, the choices she had made which she understood were an expression of illness,

“And I understand that and I know she was in pain and today she can understand that she was absolutely doing her best, and if she could have done it differently, she would have done it.”

The daughter of the country music legend said she hoped that when her mother died, she was able to ‘Relinquish any guilt or shame you have endured for any shortcoming she may have had in raising my sister [Wynonna] And me because surely everything was forgiven on my end – everything was forgiven long ago.

Despite dealing with the fallout from their mother’s long struggle with mental illness, both Ashley and Winona have had to empathize with the struggles their mother faced with her mental illness.

Ashley added:[I had] to understand it [mother’s] Mental illness was a disease. I didn’t cause it, I couldn’t control it and I couldn’t cure it.

The actress promised herself that she would relinquish the control she had over her mother’s treatment and let Judd make her own decisions, even when she didn’t think they were the right ones.

Ashley revealed, “There have been times when she has had excellent, experienced professional help and has chosen not to pursue this in the ways that she thought was best for her.” I had to respect her independence and give her the dignity to make those decisions for herself – even when I thought her thinking was distorted.

Ashley explained that after giving up her ability to make decisions about her mother’s medical care, she often found herself worrying about her mother’s health.

“Check in,” said the Ashland, Kentucky, 57-year-old native. Explaining the social media post. There is a lot going on in the world right now. Before I sat down to write this, I thought, “No… I just don’t know what to say.” Then I heard the words of my life coach asking me, “What do you know?” And I started crying.

Winona said she was aware of her support system amid the trying times that followed the family tragedy, and is dedicated to performing.
