Obituary for Betty Hales King

Betty Louise Hales King, 83, passed away on Thursday, May 23, 2019 at the Brian Center in Wilson.

Betty was born in Johnston County on December 26, 1935 to the late William Perry Hales and Hazel Cuddington Hales. Betty worked as an insurance agent and later retired from Walmart after serving in their jewelry department for many years. She was a loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who always enjoyed spending time with her family. Betty had a great love for her special k-9 babies, Buffy and BooBoo, who offered so much love and companionship to her. She was a member of St. Mary’s Original Free Will Baptist Church and was involved in many of their activities where she shared the love of God with others.

The family will receive friends on Monday, May 27, 2019 from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. at Kenly Funeral Service in Kenly followed by a service to celebrate Betty’s life at 11:00 a.m. in the chapel with Rev. David Kriger officiating. Interment will follow in the Kenly Cemetery. At other times, the family will be at the home of Dawn and Mike Watkins, 3207 Brentwood Drive North, Wilson, NC.

Betty is survived by her children, Xretha Hall, Dawn Watkins and husband Mike, and Kim Boykin and wife Brenda; grandchildren, Shane Hall (Traci), Donnie Hall III (Cathy Jo), Kimberly Tant, Carmen Richardson (Troy), Jacquelyn Boykin, Rachel Boykin, and Blake Boykin; great-grandchildren, Bradyn Hall, Ally Hall, Georgianna Hall, Joey Hall, Makayla Mercer, Nate Mercer and Alayna Leigh; and brother, Jim Hales. She is also survived by her step-children, Matthew King and Jason King and wife Sue and family.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husbands, Alvin E. Boykin and Walter King; brother, Bill Hales; and sisters, Jessie Woodruff, Rose Ballance, Janet Watkins, and Judy Upchurch.
