Mrs. Jane Williams, widow of the ate Prof. George P . Williams for so nany years connected with the University, died last Wednesday, at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. Duane Doty, in Pullman, 111., after i brief illness, from pneumonĂ­a. She was widely and favorably known in this city, where she had resided so many of the years of her life. She was a great helprrfeet to her husbond, who was so many years one of the leading professors in the University, and was noted for the kindness of her heart and her hospitality. The funeral services were held in this city, Sunday afternoon. As a tribute to her worth, we cannot do better than transcribe from the Detroit Free Press, the following from the pen of a friend who knew her well. The death of Mrs. Jane Williams, widow of the late Prof. Williams, of the University of Michigan, was a shock to her many friends in Ann Arbor and elsewhere. Mrs. Williams was a woman of rare culture, possessing a genial nature that endeared her to those with whom she associated. In her family life she was remarkable for selfsacrifice and untiring devotion. Many hearts and homes will miss her cheerful presence, and mourn her departure. Her body will be laid to rest beside her late husband and her daughter, Louise Richards, in Forest Hill Cemetery, Ann Arbor. Mrs. Williams was wont to talk of this hallowed spot with a "longing to join her beloved dead to await the resurrection mom." The "low green tent" neath which she lies. shall speak to us of Paradise- Of jnys untold, unknown bnlow- Which mortals ne'er can see or know ! Dear Forest HilU Beyond thy bare Our dead still live beyond thy stars.
