Wiccan Elder Jean Williams has Passed On
Jean Williams and her husband Zach Cox were initiated as Wiccans in the 1960s. Jean became the High Priestess of Gerald Gardner’s coven in the mid-1970s. I met her on a few occasions and found her to be absolutely lovely as well as extremely knowledgeable about the Craft.
Only this summer, I went to the launch of Jean and Zach's book The Play Goes On: The Rituals of Rainbow Bridgeat Treadwell's in London. The photograph on the left shows her signing her book at the event. You can read my write-up of the event here: http://www.badwitch.co.uk/2015/08/launch-party-for-play-goes-on-at.html
An interview with Jean Williams appeared in Wiccan Rede in 2014: http://wiccanrede.org/2014/07/pathfinder-extraordinaire-an-interview-with-jean-williams-part-1/
Jean will be very much missed.
