Obituary for Jeanne Penn Lane

Jeanne Penn Lane, 73, of Penn's Store, passed away Friday, February 2, 2018. She was born in Danville, Kentucky on August 6, 1944 to the late Robert Lucian and Alma ďTincyĒ Penn Lane, Jr. 

Jeanne grew up on the family farm in north-western Casey County in the Forkland Community, and graduated from Forkland High School. After receiving her degree in Art from Eastern Kentucky University, Jeanne started the Title I Art Program in Boyle County and taught art in Boyle and surrounding counties for a number of years. Jeanne was also a poet and lyricist, eventually taking a position as a contract songwriter for 4Star Music in Nashville, TN and later worked for Jack Clement Studios, also in Nashville. Jeanne had a number of songs on the Billboard Top 40 during her music career. While writing songs, Jeanne continued as a working visual artist, primarily on commission for private clients in the music business. After returning to the central Kentucky family farm, Jeanne became involved in the operation and preservation of the family business, historic Pennís Store. Jeanneís vision spawned events that promoted and brought state and national awareness, not only to Pennís Store, but also to literary and musical talent in Kentucky, such as the Kentucky Writerís Day Celebration (sponsored by Pennís Store), and the Great Outhouse Blowout, the annual Pennís Store fundraiser which began in 1992 as a dedication ceremony and concert (headlined by world-renowned guitarist, Chet Atkins, and Billy Edd Wheeler) for ďPennís Privy,Ē the first restroom facilities at Pennís Store.

Surviving are a daughter, Dawn Lane Osborn (Bartley) of Pennís Store in Forkland and a granddaughter, Olivia JeNean Graas of Pennís Store in Forkland. 

Jeanne is preceded in death by her parents, grandparents, and a daughter, Dava JeNean Osborn Jones.
