The angels delivered Minnie Ida King, at the age of 81, home to her Lord and Savior on Tuesday, April 9th, 2019.  Minnie was a lifetime resident of South Pittsburg, Tennessee where she grew up along with raising her family.

Those left to carry on her memories are her sons, Alvin (Kim) King and Kenneth King; daughters, Mary Pritchett and Roberta King; special daughter-in-laws, Shirley King and Barbara King; sister, Evalee Cates; grandchildren, Matthew, Katie, Shane, Kenneth Jr. and Cody King and Danny Jr, Tristan and Michael Witt; twelve great grandchildren and special nieces, Vicky, Martha and Maggie.
