Mary Jane Thomas, wife of country music star Hank Williams Jr., has died, Fox News Digital confirmed.
Thomas was taken to a local hospital around 5 p.m. local time Tuesday from the Jupiter Beach Resort & Spa in Jupiter, Fla., where she was pronounced dead, a spokesman for the local police department told Fox News Digital. Accounts of her death differ in relation to Thomas’ age. She was in her late 50s or early 60s.
Williams, 72, and Thomas were married for about 30 years. After meeting at one of Williams’ shows in Washington state in 1985, the two tied the knot in 1990.
Thomas and the former Monday Night Football singer of All My Rowdy Friends have raised two children – daughter Katie Williams-Dunning and son Samuel Williams.
Williams-Dunning died in a car accident in Tennessee in 2020. Her husband, Tyler Dunning, was in the vehicle and survived with serious injuries.
Last month, Samuel Williams claimed in a video that his father and half-sister Holly Williams put him in a conservatory he wanted out of days after Williams-Dunning died in August 2020.
Mary Jane, who performed alongside Williams Jr. when he was recently inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, is survived by the singer, her son and three grandchildren, reports TMZ.
According to the outlet, the family has requested privacy at the time.
Williams Jr. representatives did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
