BORN IN KENTUCKY DIED IN ILLINOIS
Beautiful Life of Mrs. John D. Williams Came to a Close
Sunday Morning - Pneumonia the Cause
Mrs. Nannie Williams, beloved wife of John D. Williams, passed
away at the family residence, 704 North St., at 4:40 Sunday morning,
after an illness of nine days, due to pneumonia. She was 75 years of
age. She suffered a nervous breakdown five years ago from which she
never fully recovered. She was a useful character in the world of
christianity and lived to make those about her happy. As a church
member she was valuable for she lived by the teachings of her chosen
denomination, the Christian church, to which she had belonged since
1861. Her father was a minister in this church and administered the
baptismal service when she was baptized.
The subject of this sketch was born in Harrodsburg, Ky., in 1835;
she was twice married, her second husband being John D. Williams,
Nov. 1st, 1885, in Hardinsburg, Ky.
Her body was taken to Irvington, Ky., Monday for burial and was
accompanied by her only daughter, Mrs. Bessie Warren, of Louisville,
Ky, and by her step-son, Walter Williams. Mr. Williams, the bereaved
husband, was too ill to accompany the body of his dearly departed one.
The remains will be laid to rest beside those of a daughter, Mrs. Lydia
Jolly, who was recently called away.
