Obituary: Louise V. King
Louise V. King journeyed peacefully to be with her Lord on June 9, 2019, at nearly 93 years of age.
Born in Birmingham on July 28, 1926, King spent most of her life–over 70 years–with her great love, Cecil King. There is peace knowing she was welcomed at the gates of heaven by the arms of her beloved Jesus and by loved ones who preceded her: parents, Roy and Maude Scott, and brothers, Howard, Buford, R.E. and Bobby. She is both mourned and celebrated with love and gratitude by her faithful and loving husband, Cecil King, by her children, Eddie (Patricia) King, Charles (Sharon) King and Arrice (Ken) Faught, and by her 9 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. Deeply devoted to her family, King (Granna) longed for each of her children and her children’s children to come to know, serve, and love the Lord with all their hearts. Tucked carefully between pages of her Bible are pictures of family and friends, notes, articles and obituaries, verses underlined and noted–a history of quiet devotion and prayer. Louise also had a passion for music, a love she passed on to family members and friends alike, singing in her church choir for many years. Cecil King and King raised their family in Center Point, where they were members of the First Baptist Church. They later moved to Moody, where they spent nearly two decades as members of Bethel Baptist Church before settling more recently in Tuscaloosa and faithfully attending Taylorville Baptist. The celebration of King’s life will be held at Bethel Baptist Church in Moody on Wednesday, June 12, with visitation at 12:30 p.m. and service at 2 pm. The family requests your consideration of a donation, in lieu of flowers, to the Gideons Masonic Lodge No. 705, 480 3rd Ave, Odenville, AL 35120.
And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; being strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. Colossians 1:9-12.
