Barbara A. King, 77, passed away on February 1, 2021, in Gaylord, Michigan.
Barb was born in McComb, Ohio, and graduated from Mt. Cory-Rawson High School. She is the middle child and only daughter of Cloyce and Betty Faye King, who preceded her in death.
Earlier in life, Barb worked at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island. She was very proud to show off the hotel, and its beautiful grounds, to those who visited her. The simplest of pleasures in life brought great joy to Barb. She was a member of the Gaylord Church of the Nazarene and loved to sing with the Sweet Adeline’s. She had an uncanny ability to find happiness in her daily activities, including working on puzzles, taking care of her cat, collecting teapots and owls, and reading books. Her easy-going personality was contagious to everyone she met. She also enjoyed volunteering at the Otsego County Commission on Aging.
Barb is survived by her brothers, Ken King, of Boyne City, Bob King, her sister-in-law, Katie, and her niece and nephew, who live in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Visitation will be held Thursday, March 11, 2021, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. with a memorial service being held at 2:00 p.m. at the Nelson Funeral Home, 135 N. Center Ave., Gaylord, MI 49735.
