Jane Marie Osborn Mudd

July 21, 1931 ~ June 22, 2020 (age 88)


Jane Marie Osborn Mudd, 88, died June 22, 2020 at the Loretto Motherhouse Infirmary in Loretto, KY. Born in Lebanon, KY on July 21st, 1931, to Anita Porter Osborn and William Osborn, Jane lived most of her life in Bardstown, KY, where she was a member of the St. Joseph’s Altar Society, St. Joseph’s Parish, the Stephen Foster Music Club and numerous bridge and Scrabble clubs. She was the former developer and director of the St. Joseph Learning Center. This accomplishment gave her great satisfaction and reward and was surpassed only by her pride in her children and grandchildren. Jane was a remarkable woman in many ways. She left college to marry and start a family, but completed her Bachelor’s degree after her children were grown, and, at the age of 60, received her Master’s Degree in Education.


Jane was predeceased by her parents William Osborn, Anita Porter Osborn Caldwell and James A. Caldwell. 

She is survived by her children, Lenny Mudd (Helen Mudd), Angela Mudd (Clyde Simmons), Rob Mudd (Kate Waller), Sharon Mudd (Tom Balinski), Sheila Poore (Phil Poore) and Mary Bernadette Mudd. She is survived by her former husband, Leonard Mudd, with whom she had maintained a friendship for more than 70 years. She is survived by her grandchildren, Stephen Mudd, Kristi Dunn, Kimberly Mudd-Fegett, Kate Mudd Broaddus, Colin Simmons, Sarah Litke, William Daniel Mudd Simmons, Benjamin A. Mudd, Nicholas A.
