King and 14 others were shot at the Kroger on Byhalia Road Thursday, September 23. The accused gunman, who police have identified as 29-year-old Uk Thang, took his own life on the scene.
King was a widow and a mother to three adult sons. She leaves behind five grandchildren.
King was a regular parishioner at the Catholic Church of the Incarnation in Collierville. Church leader Jenny Fehrenbacher describes King as a faithful member who always had a smile on her face and a kind word for everyone.
“She just was a happy person. And she just was a joy to know,” Fehrenbacher said.
