Thomas, who was married to Williams for more than 30 years, passed back in March. She died from a collapsed lung, TMZ reported Monday. The 58-year-old died one day after she went under the knife for liposuction.
Williams and Thomas’ son Sam released a statement after her passing, as The Daily Wire reported.
“My dear Mama Mary Jane was a beautiful soul who forever affected everyone who knew her,” Sam said. “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.”
“She grew up competing in baton and cheerleading and was one of Hawaiian Tropic’s top models,” the statement continued. “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.”
“She is survived by my father, her two parents Ramona and Bill, her brother Andy, her sister Angela, myself and her three grandchildren: Beau Weston, Tennyson Hiram and Audrey Jane,” Sam added. “Rest in peace Mama, I will always be the son of Mary Jane.”
