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.
