Sir Tom Jones’ wife of 59 years, Lady Melinda Rose Woodward, passed away Sunday morning, April 10, after a short but fierce battle with cancer. Surrounded by her husband and loved ones, she passed away peacefully at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

Sir Tom and his family have asked for privacy at this difficult time.

Sir Thomas Jones Woodward (born 7 June 1940) is a Welsh singer known by his stage name Tom Jones. He became one of the most popular vocalists to emerge from the mid-1960s. Since then, he has sung many forms of popular music – pop, rock, R&B, show tunes, country, dance, soul music and gospel – and sold over 100 million records. (Wikipedia)

Jones has had thirty-six Top 40 hits in the United Kingdom and nineteen in the United States; some of his notable songs include “It’s Not Unusual”, “What’s New Pussycat”, “Delilah”, “Green, Green Grass of Home”, “She’s a Lady”, “Kiss”, and “Sex Bomb”.

Jones was awarded an OBE in 1999 and received a knighthood from Queen Elizabeth II for “services to music” in 2006. He has received many other awards throughout his career, including the Grammy Award for Best New Artist in 1966, an MTV Video Music Award in 1989, and two Brit Awards, winning Best British Male in 2000 and Outstanding Contribution to Music in 2003. From 2012 to 2015 Jones was one of the four coaches on the BBC television talent show The Voice UK.

The couple had one child together, Mark Woodward. Jones has another son, Jonathan Berkery, from another relationship.


Jones and Woodward, who were married for 59 years, shared a somewhat unconventional marriage. The singer had several extramarital affairs, which were well publicized, throughout his career.

 Last week, Jones, 75, suddenly canceled a string of shows across Southeast Asia due to a “serious illness in his immediate family.” At the time, there was no indication that his wife was ill.

Jones previously admitted that if his wife died, he would have great difficulty performing again.

“A lot of the songs that I do, the love songs that I do, of course it’s Linda is there and yes, she is the one,” Jones revealed in a 2015 interview on the “Jonathan Ross Show,”according to BreakingNews. “I don’t want to go on about it but she wasn’t well a while ago and she got close to … we didn’t know whether she was going to make it or not and I said to Mark [my son], I said, ‘If your mother doesn’t make it, I don’t know whether I can sing’ because a lot of the songs that I do, I think of her when I do it, so it would be hard if she wasn’t there to be able to sing.”

He needs our prayers during this difficult time.


God Bless.
