TAMMY WYNETTE’S NAME TO BE RESTORED TO CRYPT

TAMMY WYNETTE’S
NAME TO BE
RESTORED TO
CRYPT

NASHVILLE — Tammy Wynette’s professional name will be restored to her
crypt
 because the
person who owns the mausoleum space has agreed to the change, according to
Wynette’s daughter Jackie Daly.
A representative of Woodlawn Memorial Park
informed her Wednesday that her stepsister, Deirdre Richardson Hale, had given
the OK to change the name Virginia
W. Richardson on the crypt back to Tammy Wynette. She said the letters on the
crypt could possibly be changed by Friday afternoon.
Wynette’s four daughters were seeking a court
order to get the name changed when she got the news. Daly said she assumed her
stepsister had a change of heart because of media attention and a Facebook page
launched by fans of the singer seeking “A Restoration.”
“We were just going to go ahead and
start raising the money to move her, but we didn’t have to do that,” Daly
said.
The name on the crypt was changed in 2012 to
Virginia W. Richardson, 14 years after the singer’s 1998 death.

Wynette’s name was changed on the crypt when
her children and the children of her husband, George
Richey, were contemplating a challenge to the sale of their parents’
intellectual property to a music publishing company a few months before
Richey’s 2010 death.
