Country singer star Hank Williams Jr.’s wife, Mary Jane Thomas, died Tuesday in Jupiter, Florida, according to People.com.
Thomas, who was William’s third wife, was at the Jupiter Beach Resort & Spa when she apparently suffered a medical emergency. Jupiter Police Department said they received a call for medical help from the resort around 5 p.m. Tuesday.
Thomas, who is said to be between 58 and 61 years old, was transferred to the hospital where she was pronounced dead. Authorities have not released a cause of death.
Thomas had two children with Williams, Katherine Diana, who died in a 2020 vehicle accident at the age of 27, and son Sam, 24.
Sam Williams said in a statement, “My dear Mama Mary Jane was a beautiful soul who forever affected everyone who knew her. She had a smile and presence that lit up every room and she never met a stranger she didn’t befriend.
“Her spirit was gentle and giving. She could take down a ten-point buck and fix dinner for her grandchildren at the same time!
“Now she gets to radiate from above with my sister Katherine Diana right by her side.”
Williams went on to say that his mother was a Hawaiian Tropic suntan lotion top model and that his 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.”
