Loretta Lynn planned her funeral when she was still alive
On September 30th, Radar Online reported that the Country music queen was planning her own funeral.
As per the outlet, her friends revealed at the time that the singer was settling her estate before her death. She was reportedly planning to put one of her Nashville homes up for sale.
According to the outlet, one of Loretta’s family friends revealed that she “wants to turn most of her physical holdings into cash so she doesn’t burden her kids and grandkids with having to sell off stuff when she’s gone.”
As per the family friend, the songstress was also planning her funeral service.
She reportedly wanted her final resting place to be next to her late husband, Oliver Vanetta Lynn, as well as their late children, Jack Benny and Betty Sue, at their family cemetery in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee.
The family friend also noted that Loretta wanted her memorial service to be held at Hurricane Mills.
“She wants all of her fans to be able to attend, and there’s plenty of room at the ranch.”
The Grammy winner reportedly also asked her children and grandchildren to perform at her funeral. In addition to this, she also wanted her long-time pal Dolly Parton to “help send her off in style,” a source told the outlet.
