Marjorie Williams Obituary

WASHINGTON (AP) - Marjorie Williams, a columnist for The Washington Post who specialized in profiles of political celebrities and commentary on American society, died Jan. 16 of liver cancer. She was 47.

Williams, who also wrote for Vanity Fair magazine, contributed occasional pieces for the Post during her illness, which was diagnosed in 1991. Her last column, Nov. 3, reflected on seeing her daughter, a third-grader, costumed at Halloween as the teenager she would not live to see.

Survivors include her husband, Timothy Noah, a columnist for the online magazine Slate; son, Will, and daughter, Alice.
