Two daughters, Mrs. Addie Tucker and Mrs. Lulu Rynders, now reside in Grand Rapids. Her husband died some years ago, since which time she has lived with her children.

Mary William was loved and respected by all who knew her. She always identified herself with the Wesleyan Methodists and died in the christian's hope.
