Mary Jane Williams, the wife of Country Music Hall of Famer Hank Williams Jr., died unexpectedly on Tuesday, March 22. She was 58 years old.
Hank Jr. and Mary Jane had been married for over 30 years. They met at one of his shows in 1985 and married five years later.
The couple shared two children, a daughter named Katie and a son named Sam. Sadly, Katie was killed in a car accident in 2020.
Sam, who is a singer, is understandably devastated about his mother’s death. On Wednesday (March 23), he shared a statement with CMT concerning her passing.
The statement read in part:
“Now she gets to radiate from above with my sister Katherine Diana right by her side. She grew up competing in baton and cheerleading and was one of Hawaiian Tropic’s top models. My father fell in love with the Daytona Beach beauty the minute he set eyes on her in the early 80s. They went on to live the most powerful love story of travel and hunting and raising a family…“
More recently, Sam shared a touching tribute to his mom on social media. The tribute contained a slideshow of photos showcasing Mary Jane and her family through the years.
“I will always be the son of Mary Jane. RIP MAMA. I love you forever. Miss Spruce Creek High School, Miss Hawaiian Tropic, Miss Mary Jane Williams, my mama forever my everything.“

May Mary Jane rest in peace.
