The Oak Ridge Boys Mourn The Loss Of Norah Lee Allen.

Norah Lee Allen, wife of Oak Ridge Boys lead singer Duane Allen, passed away on March 31st after battling an extended illness. She was 76 years old.

Norah Lee, a talented background vocalist, graced the stage of the Grand Ole Opry for over 40 years and worked with numerous country music legends.

Her dedication to music, family, and faith left a lasting impact on those around her. Memorial arrangements will be shared on Duane Allen’s Facebook page and The Oak Ridge Boys’ official social media.

“This morning, my wife of 54 years and 8 months took her last breath of air on planet Earth. Norah Lee went to be with Jesus at 7:28 am, Easter morning. She had not been feeling well for some time. Her family all spent the night with her last night at Vanderbilt Hospital. We took time singing with and to her, telling her stories, and loving her every second that God let us share her here on Earth.”

Duane continued, “Jamie, Dee, and I would like to thank you all for your love and prayers. We have been at her bedside for over nine weeks.”
