Bithie Sue Taylor King

Mrs. Bithie Sue Taylor King, age 85 of Eagleville, TN, passed away peacefully at home on Tuesday, July 4, 2023.  She was born on October 3, 1937 in Eagleville, TN and was a daughter of the late Fred Nance Taylor and Maye Bennett Taylor.  She was a member of Triune Baptist Church.


Known for her 6 foot height and hard-to-defend hook shot, Bithie Sue played many an exciting basketball game for Eagleville High School.  Upon graduating, she worked at Middle Tennessee Electric as a clerk for several years.  After marrying and starting a family, her next public work was a postal clerk for the Eagleville Post Office.  The in-between years were spent as a wife and mother, taking good care of her husband, children, and their home.  Though she was a wonderful homemaker and cook, her favorite place to be was outside.  She loved mowing and weedeating, working in her flowers, and in the garden.  She also enjoyed working in the kitchen ministry at her church, making greeting cards to send to friends and family, decorating cakes for family birthdays, collecting teapots, and decorating for holidays, especially Christmas.


Susie was married for 65 years to William Lane King, who was raised in the the Longview Community after meeting him on a blind date while he was home on leave from the Army.  In addition to her husband, William, Bithie Sue is survived by her children, LaNae Turner of Eagleville, TN, Dwight (Julie) King of Eagleville, TN, and Tabitha (Tim) Persch of Larkspur, CO.  She is beloved “Grandma Susie” to her six grandchildren, Zach & Braiden King, Campbell & Mitchell Turner, Rafe & Avery Persch.  Also survived by her loving sister, Mary Ellen Loyd, and nephews, Mike (Jeanna) Loyd, Mendy Loyd. 


Visitation with the family will be on Friday, July 7, 2023 from 4 PM - 8 PM at Lawrence Funeral Home.  Funeral services will be conducted at 10 AM on Saturday, July 8, 2023 from the Chapel of Lawrence Funeral Home with Dr. Jeffery Elliott officiating.  Interment will follow at the Bennett Cemetery in Eagleville, TN.


Susie’s grandchildren will be pallbearers.  Honorary pallbearers will be the Seekers Sunday School Class at Triune Baptist Church.
