Rees Funeral Home Obituary


   LINCOLNTON, GA - Mrs. Emma Lee King, 75 of Bethany Church Rd. entered into eternal rest on Thursday, May 6, 2021 at Augusta University Medical Center.

   There will be a celebration of life service at 2 p.m. Wednesday, May 12, 2021 at the Lewis Family Pavilion in the Lincoln County Historical Park, 147 Lumber Street with Apostle Carla McDougald officiating.

   Mrs. King was born November 12, 1945 and was the daughter of the late Isaac Norman, Jr. and the late Lizzie Hawes of Lincoln County. Mrs. Emma as she was known by many was an excellent cook and an immaculate housekeeper. She maintained her yards herself and they were groomed and manicured better than a professional landscaper would have done. Mrs. Emma had a heart of gold often collecting furniture and preparing food for families that were less fortunate. She would open her home and give a loving and caring environment to a child that had come upon hard times at home. To say she will be missed would be an understatement, she was loved and will be missed by all. God has definitely gained another angel in Mrs. Emma. "Go rest high on that mountain, for your work on earth is done."

   Survivors her husband, Johnny Eugene King; one son, Apostle Bruce B. King and wife, Melissa of Greenwood, SC; three daughters, Rugenia King and Harriett Faye Brehm both of Lincolnton and Ayanna Wells and husband, Andre of Grovetown, GA; eleven grandchildren, Gwannettia King, Careesa Latimer and husband, Carlton, Jantzen Stroman, Juya King, Jadis Ballard, Ameriah Elam, Jordan Elam, Montrevious, Micailah, M'Jaurik and M' Khorbin Wells; four great grandchildren, Angelize King, Barine Naadubon, Alexia Latimer and Destiny Latimer; step mother, Emma Jean Norman of Tignall, GA; sisters, Lisa Wilder, Katey May Norman, Katrene N. White, Effie  Wallace and husband, Mark, Shirley A.

Mr. Johnny and family,
My deepest sympathies go out to you all during this time. To say that I, and my family, loved Mrs. Emma would be the greatest understatement. She was such a significant part of my childhood whether keeping me & my brothers or sitting with my MaMa. I’ll never forget the love and care she exuded and that she put into every single thing she did. Words could never do her justice. She was truly an angel who walked among us.. You all will continue to be in our...
