Billie Faye King

Billie Faye King of Monticello passed away Thursday, January 24, 2019, at Lawrence County Nursing Center in Monticello. Billie was born February 27, 1931, in Heidelberg to Noah and Lena Mae Mosley Lowery.
Services were held Saturday, January 26, 2019, at Wilson Funeral Home Chapel in Monticello, with graveside services following in Roberts Memorial Cemetery in Jayess. Bro. Eddie Braiser officiated the services, with Wilson Funeral Home in charge of arrangements.
Billie Faye King was a modest woman who was excellent at a lot of things. She was a devoted wife, an exceptional mother, and an outstanding Nanny. We will always remember the pallet parties, shelling peas on the carport, and canning pickles and strawberry figs. Our Sundays were spent around Nanny’s kitchen table. She took great pride in cooking, and those meals every Sunday will always be a cherished memory to her chidlren, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Whether it was turnip greens and cornbread or tomato gravy and biscuits, it was the best. When it comes to the grandchildren the girls outnumbered the boys, but she didn’t mind. She loved us all the same, but she made sure her girls knew three things: always make the bed as soon as you get up, don’t let anything go to waste, and always save the bacon grease. Her family was her pride and joy. To most, Billie Faye was the salt of the Earth, but to her family, she was everything.
Love always, The Grand Girls
She is survived by her children, son Edward “Eddie” King of Ruth; three daughters, Sandra L. Howell of Monticello, Nancy K. Alexander of Jayess and Lorri A. Alexander of Monticello; 11 grandchildren, and 27 great-grandchildren.
