Bettina C. King, 77, peacefully passed away at Golden Pond Assisted Living in Hopkinton on Jan. 29. Born in Hartford, she was the daughter of the late E. Holmes and Marion E. (Tumey) King.
Bettina graduated from Cherry Hill High School in New Jersey and continued her education at Franconia College. Her lifelong passion for art manifested through her remarkable skills as an illustrator and craft maker. Family held a special place in Bettina’s heart, and she cherished many summers with her cousins at the family cottage in East Brookfield.
Preceded in death by her brother, Jeffrey King, Bettina is lovingly remembered by sister-in-law Heather King, niece Lyndsay King, nephew Justin King, grandnieces McKenna and Sienna Khalsa, grandnephew Finnley King and cousins James Cameron, Peter Cameron, Robert Shapalis, Christy Hanna, Deborah Rice, Barbara Cormier and Wendy Allen.
Arrangements are private and entrusted to the care of Miles Funeral Home, Holden. Memorial contributions may be made to a charity of one’s own choosing. Bettina’s artistic legacy and warm spirit will be dearly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her. May she rest in eternal peace.
