Ann Mary King Obituary

Ann "Gram's or Annie" King, mother, grandmother and friend peacefully returned to her heavenly home on September 10, 2015, at the age of 91, to join her husband John King and son Thomas King.

Ann, who was born in Rio Vista, California, April 10, 1924 to Jose and Rose Ramirez, moved to San Francisco at a very young age where she later graduated high school, got married to John King while raising two boys Thomas and James.

Ann worked at Scomas restaurant as a hostess for 22 years until she became widowed. In 1990, Ann relocated to Yuba City to be closer to her sons, Thomas King in Yuba City and James King in Weaverville, CA.

Gram's enjoyed sports on TV, never missing a Giants baseball game or 49ers football game on Sundays. She was always proud to answer any trivial question when it involved football and baseball. Ann also enjoyed golfing, shopping and gardening, she will always be remembered for her beautiful rose garden that brightened her neighborhood every spring.

On September 11, 2001, after watching the Twin Towers attacked, my Grandma had a brand new look and respect for our fire fighters and as a small token of her appreciation towards them she delivered them donuts as often as possible which carried on till the day she was not able to drive. Meanwhile, in that time, a special friendship blossomed, her favorite fireman, being Dave Newquist, was not considered just a good friend anymore. He was her family and she felt safe knowing he was close and as she said "Has her back".

Ann is survived by her siblings Isabella Wilson of San Francisco, CA, Linda Effisimo of Copperopolis CA, Margaret Greenly of Los Gatos, CA, Lucy Blanchard of Daly City, CA, Raymond Ramirez of Sacramento, CA, Rose Ramirez of Sunnyvale, CA, son James King of Weaverville, CA. Grandchildren Michelle King of Yuba City, CA, Julie Tarkington of Yuba City, CA, Michael King of Yuba City, CA, Breana Mullen of Weaverville, CA, Joel King of Santa Rosa, CA, Belia Stephens of Weaverville, CA and numerous great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.
