Patricia A. King, 65
DUDLEY – Patricia A. King, 65, of Hill Court, went home to be with the Lord Jesus Christ on her 43rd wedding anniversary, August 9, 2012, after a brief illness. She is survived by her husband, Francis R. King of Dudley; two children, Tracie L. Pollier and her husband James of Dudley, and Scott F. King and his wife JoEllen of Brookfield; three brothers, Roger Snow of Brookfield, Warren Snow of Leicester, and David Snow of Florida; a sister, Eunice Proulx of Southbridge; six grandchildren, Calah Dresser of Marlborough, CT, Cassie Dresser of Dudley, Josiah Dresser of Webster, Ashley, Noah, and Amber King, all of Brookfield; two great grandchildren, Aedyn and Tanis Trigo; and many nephews and nieces. She was born in Charlton, the daughter of the late Walter and Florence (Barnes) Snow, and lived most of her life in Charlton before moving to Dudley 2 years ago. She graduated from Charlton High School.
Mrs. King was a homemaker for most of her life. She had several jobs throughout her life, including working for New England Telephone, Franzen Shoe Company in Worcester, and in the cafeteria at Bay Path High School in Charlton, where she was well-liked by her students. Mrs. King has been an ordained minister with Open Door Ministries along with her husband having been “born again – saved” since 1978. She loved nothing more than reading her bible and ministering the Word of God to others. She enjoyed making food baskets for the holidays and was a fantastic cook. She will be fondly remembered as a humble, and a truly virtuous woman, who always put others ahead of herself. Her main desire in this new life was “to love and be loved”, as she lived her new life in Jesus Christ, her Lord and Saviour. Hallelujah! She is home at last!
