OBITUARIO

Jane Crenshaw Williams

2 febrero , 193915 marzo , 2020

Jane Crenshaw Williams, 81, passed from this life Sunday, March 15, 2020 at Mercy Hospital in Fort Smith, Arkansas. She was born February 2, 1939 to Samuel Henry Crenshaw and Eva Ree Taylor Crenshaw at home, in Gibson County, Tennessee.

Jane found the love of her life by accident, or perhaps it was fate. John Williams went to the Crenshaw Farm expecting a date with one of her sisters, but instead was met with Jane. The connection was instantaneous, and the rest is history. After John completed dental school, a brief stint in the Air Force in San Antonio and orthodontic school, they settled in Fort Smith with their two children. Jane worked diligently to help John establish his orthodontic practice. They made some incredible, life-long friendships here!

Jane was a devoted wife, a fantastic mother, a wonderful mother-in-law, a loving Grandmommy and Great Grandmommy, and oh what a great cook! She was also very active in her community. Some of the ways you may know her include: Member of First United Methodist Church, Discussion Sunday School Class, UMW, Alter Guild, Master Gardeners, Fort Smith Garden Club, Hardscrabble Garden Club, Sustainer and past President of the Junior League of Fort Smith, PEO Chapter J, and the "knitters" at the Cancer Support House. Jane was also an avid bridge player, enjoying her two weekly groups as well as subbing for other bridge groups.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Dr. John Charles Williams; sisters, Martha Parnell, Rachel Chapman, and Sue Ruper; and her brothers, Albert Finnegan Crenshaw and Bill Crenshaw. She is survived by her children, Suzanne Henson and husband, Paul; Mark Williams and wife, Connie; her grandchildren, Kevin Williams, Jessica Henson, Alexandra Henson, Madeline Henson, and Taylor Williams Perryman; her great grandchildren, Charleston and Ellington Williams; sisters, Henrietta Jackson and Nancy Ledsinger; many beloved nieces & nephews; and her precious Bichon Frise, Hannah.

A private family service will be held on Wednesday. In light of the current national health crisis, a celebration of Jane's life will be held at a later date. Memorials may be made to First United Methodist Church or the charity of one's choice. Interment will be in Oakland Cemetery in Trenton, TN. Services are entrusted to Edwards Funeral Home.
