Jimmy Dean's first wife was Mary Sue Wittauer and his second wife was Donna Meade. His first marriage ended in divorce after 40 years and his second lasted 19 years until his death at age 81, a couple months before his 82nd birthday.
Dean and Wittauer had three children together, but he had none with his second wife, Donna. Less than a year after his divorce from Wittauer, Dean married Meade, who was also a singer and songwriter. The two lived in Varina, Virginia, on a 200-acre estate that was rebuilt after it was burned down in a fire.
