Barbara Elaine (Brunk) King Obituary
Barbara Elaine King (Brunk) was born in Bakersfield, California on January 5, 1936, to Mr. and Mrs. James C. Brunk.
Barbara passed away peacefully at her home in Bakersfield, California, on January 2, 2015, after a lengthy illness, with her daughter and son, Cheri and Dirk by her side.
As my sister and I watched as she entered into our Lord's arms, we both knew her suffering had ended. There are no words that can explain the loss we felt as she departed. But, knowing that her next stop would be in Heaven with her loving husband, Leslie King (Papa), gave us the comfort we needed to accept her passing. They are now at their favorite fishing hole once again enjoying each other as they had many years before.
Barbara is survived by her daughter, Cheri and her son, Dirk; 4 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren (#8 is on the way!!). She was a loving and devoted Mother, Grandma and Great Grandma ("GG" as her great-grandchildren called her).
She will be missed more than words can express, but knowing she will no longer suffer makes it easier to cope with her absence.
Mom, we will love you forever and ever and will miss you even more!! Until we meet again.
At Barbara's request, no services will be held.
