NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) ' Gwen Yearwood, the mother and sometimes writing partner of country music performer Trisha Yearwood, has died at age 73.

Yearwood died Saturday morning in Tifton, Ga., after a long battle with cancer. A statement to the Associated Press says Trisha Yearwood and her sister Beth were by their mother's side when she died.

They thanked well-wishers for their concern and asked that expressions of sympathy be directed to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, which helps fund breast cancer research.

Gwen Yearwood, a teacher who lived in Monticello, Ga., for much of her life, wrote two cookbooks with her daughters. "Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen" was released in 2008, followed by "Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood" in 2010.
