Obituary for MARIAN FRANCES KING

Marian Frances King was born on January 28, 1939 to the late Woodrow Wilson King, Sr. and Kathaleen Archie-King. Born in Rock Hill, SC, she was the oldest of nine siblings. She and her brother Woodrow, Jr. were the only two of the children to be born in South Carolina. In 1943, Woodrow and Kathaleen moved along with their oldest two children to Washington, DC where Marian was educated in the DC Public School system. After spending her formative years in Washington, DC she moved to Richmond, VA for approximately 15 years working as a health care provider. After the death of her brother Eddie in 1999 she returned to Washington, DC to be with her sister-in-law Carolyn and continued in the health care field.

Those that knew her in her early life knew she enjoyed the social life. There was no cabaret she didn’t enjoy because she loved dressing up and stepping out. You also knew she loved fine clothes which were color coordinated from head to toe and places to wear them. She also enjoyed sewing, plants, family gatherings (for leftovers she brought her own Tupperware containers) and SHOPPING.

In her later years she turned her heart to the faith of her mother and joined with the Ephesus Adventist Church of Richmond, VA. Her final years found her united with the First Seventh-Day Church of Washington, DC where she loved her pastor and church family. At First Church she faithfully served in various ministries.

Realizing her health was failing, her family began to make arrangements to move her to Calvert County from Silver Spring in order to assist her. After a valiant fight Frances departed this life on Monday, January 5, 2015. Her family is thankful to God that she is resting in Christ and as we anticipate seeing her again at the Lord’s Second Coming.

Frances was preceded in death by: her parents, and siblings Oneida King, Eddie King, Tekolia Dockery, Woodrow King, Jr., and Bobby King.

Frances is survived by: Pekolia King-Mackall (Ronald), Lopez King-Chew, Tyrone King (Diane), sister-in-law Carolyn King and nieces Delita White (Robert), Nikki Chew (Kelvin), Tekila Gray (Derrick), Wintre Thomas (Richard) and nephews Dant’e King, Bobby Jr. King, JaMaal King, Jabari Dockery (Melvetta), GW Chew (Tina), Brandon King (Alisha) and a host of other family and friends.
