Carol Sue King

Walnut Springs - Carol Sue King passed from this life on 7/30/2021 in Glen Rose, Texas.

She leaves behind two daughters and a son, Debbie, Becky, and Ben. She is also survived by many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

Carol Sue was born on December 22,1934 in Fort Worth, Texas to Dwight Kidd and Theo Pogue. She grew up with two brothers and two sisters and graduated from Paschal High School. She was preceded in death by her father, her husband, her mother, all of her siblings (Nash, Deah, Martha, Morgan, and infant Lowell Lyman) – and by her beloved grandson, Nathanael.

On July 9,1957 Carol Sue married Davis Duane King in Andalusia, Alabama. He was stationed at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida where they resided until returning the next year to Texas where she was determined for her children to be born.

Until retirement, Carol worked as a professional draftsman. Known by her grandchildren as "Granny", she was also an amazing seamstress and sewed countless costumes, gowns, and doll clothes. She knitted and crocheted beautifully, and hand-painted Christmas ornaments. Granny loved the theater and participated on-stage and behind the scenes as well. She knew the words to seemingly every song from every musical ever written! She enjoyed the outdoors tending her purple irises, campfire sing-alongs, and long walks on the beach. Granny had a great sense of humor and often used colorful language. Her favorite things in life were margaritas, Willie Nelson, babies, and apricot fried pies.

A celebration of her life will be held at the Senior Citizen Center in Glen Rose on August 21, 2021, at 1:00 pm.
