Funeral set for Jimmy Dean

By Washington Post editors

A public visitation and an open funeral service for country music legend Jimmy Dean will be held in Richmond.

Nelson Funeral Home's website says the visitation is scheduled from noon to 8 p.m. June 20 at the funeral home. The funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. June 21 at Grove Avenue Baptist Church, followed by a private interment at Dean's home.

Dean died Sunday at his home on the James River in Varina. He was 81.

In February, Dean was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame. He was to be inducted in October.
