Jane was married to her “sweetheart” Bob (1951) for 63 years before her great loss. Together they had 4 children; Steven (Anna-Maria), Mark (Sandy), Janet (Garner), and Thomas. Her great legacy continuing through her 10 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. Jane and Robert were members of Decatur Trinity Christian Church. She took pride in serving in International mission for many years in Zaire (Congo), Botswana and Lesotho.

Jane loved people to a depth that could only come from God. She was passionate about sports, particularly tennis; which she could watch for hours, requesting minimal interruption from anyone around her! She was beautiful, sassy, sweet and funny.

Jane was a wonderful, warm and energetic person who was always ready to help. She was incredibly hospitable and my family and I enjoyed many lovely meals or glasses of her special iced tea on hot afternoons. Bob n'Jane, or Ntate Bob and 'M'eJane, as they were also known in Morija, were an item, no doubt! They were a great couple who were very supportive of many people and in many ways, two teachers who taught much more than their subjects by giving generously their time and energy . Love from the Hall family in South Africa and Lesotho.

Mrs Williams was one of her kind. Not only was she the best type writing teacher to e at Morija Girls' High School back in the 80s, but she was also an inspiration behind my lawn tennis playing skills. Her love and compassion was a force to reckon with. She will forever be missed by Ma-girl school, as we are known.

May hers and ntate Bob's souls rest in eternal peace

The best teacher ever in my high school years. Through her inspiration I went further to study Secretarial Course in the 90s. I am lately regarded as one of the best PA's because of her teachings. She will be missed by all who studied at Morija Girls High School in Lesotho. May her soul rest in eternal peace.

Mama Wlliams was a passionate and dedicated teacher and was loved by all at Morija Girls High school, Lesotho where she taught us type writing. She taught us to “type at a rhythm”. and I always remember this lesson whenever I use a keyboard. May her gentle soul Rest In Peace.

Mama Jane’s energy and smile was infectious. She was one of my favorite teachers at Morija Girls’ High School in Lesotho (Southern Africa) back in the ‘80s. She and Ntate Bob touched the lives of many Basotho youth and brought change in the church (LECSA). I’m proud to be have a student of Mama a I can type 55 words per min. She introduced typing and computers to my high school. Of significance, my daughter and spouse got to meet Mama and Ntate Bob in ‘09! We love you Mama! Continue smiling!
