Mrs. Connie B.
Connie Burse King, wife, mother, Nana, friend, Evangelist of Toledo, OH, departed this life for Heaven at the age of 85, on Tuesday, June 25, 2013, at Heatherdowns Rehab and Residential Care. Born on September 27, 1927 in Jackson, MS, her family made their home in Memphis, TN where she grew up and married her belated husband, Osie A. King Jr., on February 3, 1952. They moved to Toledo to begin their family and be close to other family members who were also living in Toledo, OH.
Connie received Christ Jesus as her Lord and Savior at an early age and she made sure that her family understood her belief that life is a blessing and that it was not to be wasted. Connie was a woman of great faith, strength and commitment who was faithful to love her family, friends, and church. She enjoyed cooking, keeping house flowers, sewing and working hard, no matter what she was doing. Her places of enjoyment here in Toledo included St. Vincent Hospital, Clean Wear, and Jobst Institute where she retired.
Connie became a member of Grace Temple CoGIC here in Toledo, on July 27, 2003, where she enjoyed the teachings, fellowship and worship. Her family and friends give thanks to our Lord Christ Jesus for her life and memory and for all those who have given their love to her and her family. We are most grateful.
Celebration Services will be held Sunday, June 30, 2013, wake services at 4:00 p.m. and funeral services starting at 5:00 p.m. at Grace Temple, 2730 Fulton Street, (419) 242-9321 Toledo, Ohio. Final arrangements have been entrusted to The House of Day Funeral Service, (419) 534-2550
