Hank Jr.'s wife dies

Wednesday, March 23, 2022 – The wife of Hank Williams Jr., Mary Jane Thomas, died at 58.

Thomas, who was married to Williams for 32 years, died in Jupiter, Fla. TMZ is reporting that "it appears she suffered a complication - possibly a blood clot - following a medical procedure," TMZ reported.

TMZ said that a Jupiter Police Department spokesperson said they received a medical call to the Jupiter Beach Resort & Spa around 5 p.m. Tuesday. Thomas was rushed to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead.

The two apparently met in 1985 following a concert in Washington. They separated in 2007, but reconciled in 2011.

He and Mary Jane had two children together - daughter Katie Williams-Dunning and son Samuel Williams. Williams-Dunning was killed in a car accident in 2020. Samuel Williams is a country music musician.

Conjuring his trademark Southern rock and country blues sound, Hank Williams Jr. mines areas familiar to longtime fans.
