Living a full and faith-filled 95 years here on earth, she was welcomed into Heaven by our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Betty married Winfred M. King, Sr. on December 20, 1953 at her family home. Winfred and Betty welcomed three children Mac, Terry and Rodney. Betty retired as a Nurse Anesthetist from Wilson Memorial Hospital. In their retirement, Betty and Winfred delighted in gardening, traveling, and serving on church mission trips together. In 2005 she moved to New Bern to be near to her son, Mac, and his family.

Betty was preceded in death by her husband, Winfred, son, Rodney and daughter, Terry. Additionally, she is preceded in death by her parents and brothers, Charles, Theo, and Chapman, and sisters, Myrtle, Mary, and Gloria.
