Patricia Jean King, age 75, died peacefully on November 3rd, 2018 in Dothan, Alabama. Patricia was born February 17, 1943 in Canton, Ohio. She was the daughter of Francis and Jean Dysert.
Patricia thoroughly enjoyed her life through painting, crafts, animals, family and children. Her artistic ability won her 1st prize at the National Peanut Festival for her ceramic painted Lighthouse. Her adventurous personality led her to the 139th Kentucky Derby and traveling through Europe. And there was nothing she loved more than scratching off a $20 winner.
In 1959, Patricia married the love of her life, Larry King. In addition to raising their three children, her career was spent caring for children at KinderCare, Evergreen and Denton Road Child Care.
