Tammy Wynette, who picked cotton as a child and earned her living as a hairdresser before becoming a country music star, said in her will that she wants her children and grandchildren to get an education.
The bulk of her estate was placed in three trusts benefiting husband George Richey, her four children and two stepchildren, and her grandchildren.Wynette left her home and personal property to Richey and $10,000 to each of her seven grandchildren. The rest of her estate went into the trusts. She died last month of a blood clot in her lungs. She was 55.
