Albany -- As people came out of Mt. Zion Baptist Church following the funeral service for Carol King, there were few tears. Instead mostly smiles, laughs and a celebration of the woman's notable life.
Carol King came to Albany in 1951 after marrying C.B. King, who opened his law practice. C.B. King represented Dr. Martin Luther King Junior when he was jailed during marches in Albany, his wife Carol by his side during the civil rights era. Judge Herbert Phipps said "I think of the contributions they have made to this community, to this state, and to this nation. We will miss her as we miss C.B., and miss those who have gone on before."
In the service her Pastor honored her as a wife and mother, but reminded that Carol King should not overshadowed by her husband. Dr. Daniel Simmons said "but she had a very distinct career on her own, where she made a tremendous impact on this community and the people all around Southwest Georgia."
Carol King spent much of her life as an advocate for children. She started the first Head Start program in South Georgia, was executive Director of the Harambee Child Development Council, and later served on the Dougherty County School Board. Dr. T. Marshall Jones said "that was the passion she had for young people."
As her hand made coffin was taken from the church, friends and family stood close by, celebrating a life of service and compassion. Judge Phipps said "we can all be proud and thankful for the contributions that Carol King and C.B. King and their family made to Albany Georgia and the nation."
That life of contribution was celebrated by Carol King's family and friends.
