In memory of

K. Jane Williams

of Philip, South Dakota, died on Saturday, March 13, 1999 at the Philip Nursing Home in Philip at the age of 104

Kristine Jane Louison, better known as K. Jane, was born February 8, 1895, at Royalton, Wisconsin, the daughter of James Louis and Celia (Farley) Louison.

She began teaching school at the age of 17 in the Ottumwa Rural School and taught for several years.

She was united in marriage to Morgan Williams on December 10, 1927.

She was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star, Chapter #100, and the Get Together Extension Club.  She was an active volunteer worker at the Philip Nursing Home and took care of the flower boxes at the Hans P. Peterson Memorial Hospital.  She was a dedicated volunteer worker at the Black Hills Passion Play for several years.

K. Jane, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother was a wonderful Special Lady to all of us.  She kept us on our toes.  She will always be a Very Special Angel in Heaven - her faith and determination will always be with her.

K. Jane's husband preceded her in death on December 20, 1974.

Grateful for having shared her life are her daughter, Laurel Cooley and her husband, Clyde, of Spearfish; a son, Reese and Bonnie Williams of Phoenix, Arizona; six grandchildren, Steven Bjorum, Dan Bjorum, David Williams, Leslie Bonnelli, Alan Williams, and Kris Williams; many great-grandchildren; and a host of other relatives and friends.

In addition to her husband, Morgan Williams, she was preceded in death by her parents; three sisters, June Thieman, Jo Radley and Jessica Stephenson; four brothers, Jay, Jim, Jack and Jerome Louison.

A memorial is established.
