Mary Elizabeth "Beth" (Werle) King

Mary Elizabeth "Beth" (Werle) King, age 73, passed unexpectedly and tragically on Thursday, June 28, 2018 at her place of residence in Bakersfield, CA. Though her sudden death has left her family saddened and in shock, we have chosen to remember her as she was before this life became too much for her gentle spirit to bear.

Beth was truly the belle of the ball any and everywhere she went. Her bright smile, big hair, sparkly jewelry, classy clothes, and boisterous laughter immediately commanded the attention of all those around her. She knew how to have the best of times and encouraged all to enjoy life to the fullest. She loved her God, her music, and her family tremendously.

Beth is proceeded in death by her beloved mother, Francis Werle and her precious grandson, Tanner DeWitt. She is survived by her husband of 56 years, John King; their children Kim Wilson (husband Charles), Kyle King, and Kourtney DeWitt (husband Stuart); siblings James Werle, Janice Werle, and Annette McDonald; six grandchildren; three great grandchildren; and numerous cousins, nieces, nephews and dear friends.

A Celebration of Life is scheduled for 4:00 pm on Saturday, July 21st at 3020 Olympic Drive. Please join the family in cherishing the memory of Beth's life.
