Beulah Clara King
Beulah Clara King, 91, longtime resident of Hughesville, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on May 27, 2019, at her daughter’s home near Montoursville.
Beulah was born on Oct. 1, 1927, near Nordmont. She was the daughter of the late Roland and Dora (Speary) Horn. Beulah was a member of the Sullivan County Schools Class of 1945.
She worked at Stroehmann’s Bakery for eight years and then worked at GTE Sylvania Montoursville until her retirement. Beulah faithfully attended Tivoli United Methodist Church in Tivoli where she enjoyed the Christian Women’s group, helping with their bake and soup sales, the making of Easter eggs and various other church activities.
Beulah owned and operated Kings Ceramics for 40 years. She was also an avid rug-hooker and taught the dying art of creating traditional wool pieces. She delighted in giving lessons and sharing her hobbies with children and adults alike.
She liked to read, to travel and see new things. She adored spending time with children, her large family and friends, and volunteering at her church. Beulah will be greatly missed by those who were blessed to have her in their lives.
Surviving are her four children, John King II, of Blakeslee, Sheila (Steven) Myers, of Montoursville, Alex King, of Hughesville, and Greta Laws (Ronald), of Lemon Springs, N.C.; six grandchildren, John King III (Kimberly), of Picture Rocks, Danielle Brown (Taylor), of Lemon Springs, N.C., Kayla Seese (Russell), of Middleburg, Fla., Micah Myers (Shauna), of South Williamsport, Caleb Myers (Sarah), of Williamsport, and Gabriel Myers, of Hughesville; along with four great-grandchildren, Brock King, Piper Brown, Grace and Isaac Myers, as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, John L. King, with whom she shared 62 years of marriage, and her five brothers and five sisters.
A memorial service will be held at her church, at 2 p.m. on June 29. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made in Beulah’s name to Tivoli United Methodist Church or to an organization of your choice.
