Obituary Image


Revelation 21: 3-4  With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

Cordelia M. King, who loved to be called Momma by her kids, Margaret or Momma King by her friends, departed her loving family on February 12, 2021.

Cordelia was born in Carpenter, Mississippi on April 2,1941 to Willie and Cordelia Taylor. On May 26,1960, Cordelia married George Defore King Sr.

She was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses in 1975 and served faithfully as a zealous and exemplary servant of Jehovah, until her death on February 12, 2021

 As an active servant of Jehovah, Cordelia was known for her love, faith, and trust in Jehovah. Her hobbies included shopping and helping others look their best. She was most proud of her service to Jehovah and speaking about the Good news of God’s Kingdom to others and spending time with her children and grand-children. She never allowed an opportunity to pass where she did not talk to anyone she came in contact with about Jehovah and his Kingdom promises.

She was preceded in death by her father (Willie), mother (Cordelia), one daughter (Stephanie Kissy), five sisters (Ruby Wells), (Rosie Wilson), (Willie-Ella, Gail, Clara Taylor)

Sister Cordelia is survived by her husband, George D King Sr, her ten children, Debra (Robert) Terrell, Veronica McClure, Janice (Rickey) Stoke,

George (Cynthia) King Jr, Jerry (Elsie) King, Robert (Yolanda) King, Terry King, Rickey (Angie) King, Kenny (Shay) King, Anthony (Samara) King, 20 grandchildren, 19 great grandchildren, 1 great great grandchild,

one brother, Willie (Wanda) Taylor, seven sister, Faye Starks, Linda, Doris, Verna, Susan, Vanessa Taylor, Mattie Barnwell, and a host of nieces and nephews and other relatives and friends

Special Thanks:

The Family of Sister Cordelia King would like to take this opportunity to express our deepest appreciation for your love and kindness. Your acts of kindness and Brotherly love have helped to sustain us at this difficult time.

We all look forward to Jehovah’s promises at John 5:28-29 “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the Memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgement."
