Justin Welby said it was “a pleasure to be her son” after mother dies at 93.

The 93-year-old mother of the Archbishop of Canterbury has received tributes.

According to Lambeth Palace, Lady Jane Williams passed away quietly on Saturday morning.

Working under Sir Ernst Chain, the recipient of the Nobel Prize, and Winston Churchill, according to the Most Rev.

Justin Welby said she enjoyed a “remarkable” life.

Many of his memories of her, according to Mr. Welby, are “full of grace, laughter, and joy.

‘Being her son had been “a privilege,” Justin Welby said.

”She loved me, set an example for me, and encouraged me, which helped shape who I am now.”

He said, “I mourn the loss of my mother with deep anguish. It has been an honor to be her son because of how much I adore her.”

Her encouragement, guidance, and love played a part in forming me into the person I am today.

”As a whole family, we express our grief over the passing of a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.”

“We are incredibly grateful to God for the gift she was to all of us, for everything we learned from her, and for everything she meant to us.”

“The grief we feel is a measure of the depth of the love we have shared.”

”We shall treasure the many gracious, happy, and amusing memories we have of her.”

”She displayed incredible fortitude, faith, and optimism right up until the very end of her life. She was aware that she would shortly join God.”

“That gave her and all of us strength, and her passing away was calm and hopeful.”

The speaker said, “I am thankful that so many people are praying for me and my family at this trying time.”

Lady Williams, who was born in India in 1929, lived with her maternal uncle Rab Butler, the wartime cabinet’s Education Secretary, for the majority of the Second World War.

Working for Winston Churchill was her first job, which she held from 1949 to 1955.

She was among the last of his personal aides, and later in life she frequently spoke and lectured about the wartime leader.

At Imperial College London, she also worked for Professor Chain, a Nobel Prize recipient best known for discovering penicillin.

She was treated “very well” by him and his family, the archbishop claimed.

Later in life, she held jobs as a prison visitor, a probation officer, and an employee of the Parole Board.

Lord Williams of Elvel, whom she wed in 1977, died in 2019, after more than 40 “happy” years of marriage.

She helped “countless others to know freedom from addiction,” according to the archbishop, after beating alcoholism.

He said, “My mother had a full human life, filled with highs and lows.
