Country legend Hank Williams Jr. is mourning the loss of his wife of more than thirty years,  Mary Jane Thomas, following her death earlier this week.

A member of the country singer’s family confirmed that Thomas died on Tuesday in Jupiter, Florida, following a reported medical procedure, possibly involving a blood clot, reported TMZ.

A spokesperson for Jupiter Police Department said authorities responded to a medical call to the Jupiter Beach Resort & Spa around 5 p.m. on Tuesday, the outlet noted. Thomas was reportedly transported to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead. There have been mixed reports as to her age, from 58 to 61.

Williams and Thomas’ son Sam released a statement following her death, calling her a “beautiful soul” as he shared how much he will miss his “dear mama,” reported People magazine.

“My dear Mama Mary Jane was a beautiful soul who forever affected everyone who knew her,” Sam explained. “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,” he added about his mom. “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,” the “Family Traditions” hitmaker’s son continued. “Rest in peace Mama, I will always be the son of Mary Jane.”

Williams’ daughter Katherine died in a car crash in 2020, reported previously by the outlet. She was 27.

Hank and Thomas met at one of his concerts in 1985. They would tie the knot five years later in 1990 and were together until her death. Mary Jane was the country rockstar’s third wife, and the couple shared two kids together, son Sam and their late-daughter Katherine.

Hank and his wife’s last public appearance came in November when the country superstar singer was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
