HER LAST FAMILY PHOTO

Following the tragic news, Katherine's sister, Holly Williams, took to her Instagram page to share a family photo, the last one they took together not even two days before the crash. She wrote:

"I have no words. On Friday morning I talked the family into taking this picture and had no idea it would be our last together with my precious little sister Katie."

According to Holly, the family attended her great aunt's funeral on Thursday and is now faced with another one. Just like her brother, Holly asked her fans and followers for prayers.

Aside from Katherine, Sam and Holly, he is also the father of Hillary Williams and Hank Williams III

Katherine, who married Dunning on October 15, 2015, leaves behind a five-year-old son named Weston and a two-year-old daughter named Audrey Jane.

SHE HAD HER OWN COMPANY

The late mother was the owner of Weston Jane, a clothing company that revolves around the idea of "moms supporting moms," as well as "women supporting women."

Katherine took great pride in the company that she built over the years, which is known for selling products that are either hand-crafted or printed by mothers.

So far, Hank Williams Jr. hasn't issued a public statement regarding his daughter's passing. Aside from Katherine, Sam and Holly, he is also the father of Hillary Williams and Hank Williams III.

Williams Jr. is one of the most respected figures in the country music scene, mostly due to the incredible talent that he inherited from his father, Hank Williams Sr., who sadly passed away at the age of 29 in 1953.
