Proud Aunt Carole is also survived by many nieces and nephews. Carole Chamberlain King also had many close friends and was a friend to all. Carole is survived by her most trusted and loved friend, her sister in Christ, Lynn Taylor.
Carole was born in San Francisco, California, and being an Army brat, lived in various areas of the U.S. and Germany as a child. She graduated from Junction City High School in Kansas and attended the University of Kansas. Carole worked as a real estate agent later transitioning into the mortgage industry, and worked her way up to owning her own successful mortgage broker business. After retiring from the mortgage business, Carole earned her Master’s Degree in Theological Studies from Calvary Gospel.
Carole very much loved the spring season and loved planting and tending flowers in her gardens. Other hobbies included a voracious appetite for reading books of all types, needlepoint, and card games. Carole spent countless hours, in all weather, sitting on her front porch enjoying nature and spending her quiet time with God.
Carole was a loving, devoted, and caring wife to her surviving husband of 27 years, Charles L. King, Jr.
Carole is my best friend, my trusted confidant, and my soulmate. Truly my gift from God. I shall miss her terribly, but I take comfort in knowing that she is healthy and I am at peace knowing that I will one day be reunited with her in Heaven. She tasked me with the chore of rounding up as many folks as I can, for we both believe in the promise that Jesus made:
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life”. John 3:16
A Celebration of Life is being planned for sometime in the spring. Anyone wishing to attend, please let the family know. All are welcome.
