Nancy King of Blenheim, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family, on Saturday June 22, 2019. Nancy was born 85 years ago to the late Stan and Jean (Stenton) Crackel. She was married to Ken James King who predeceased her in 2002. Nancy was super proud of her family and their families which includes:
Her son Ken & Rose King, grandson Trevor & Catherine, great-grandson Nolan.
Her son Jamie & Bonnie King, grandaughter Melissa, great-grandson Brody, grandson Matthew & Marcie, great-grandchildren Abigail and Austin.
Her son Kevin & Fiona King, grandchildren Karley, Jason, Darren, Karen, Bella and Adam.
Her daughter Kathy & Rick Henry, grandchildren Neila, Romaine, Shavaine, Demar, and Kiki.
Her son Kris & Joanne King, granddaughter Tara and Dean, great-grandchildren Dominic and Desmond, grandson Adam, great-grandchildren Kai and Severyn, grandaughter Rachel and Kevin.
Nancy is survived by her brothers Dick & Linda Crackel and Ewart & Nancy Crackel and their families, as well as her sisters-in-law Isabella King, Lucy King and their families.
Nancy had a long table in her kitchen where a lot of life decisions were made and where friends were always welcome. You could always count on her for some good old fashioned, no-nonsennse advice. She was a lady of epic determination who was proud to have lived life on her own terms without losing sleep or friends (she had her own euphemism for that, but the kids didn’t think it should be put in the paper!)
Cremation has taken place. Family and friends are invited to the Charing Cross United Church on Wednesday June 26, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. for a Funeral Service, immediately followed by a time of Fellowship in the Church hall. Interment will then follow with Rev. Bill Terris, and will take place at Evergreen Cemetery where Nancy will be laid to rest with Ken.
Friends wishing to remember Nancy with a memorial donation are asked to consider the Charing Cross United Church General Fund or Pet & Wildlife Rescue.
