She was a homemaker who loved her family with an unconditional love. She raised her four sons as a unit and taught them how to be patient and kind, and instilled traits of honesty and fairness.

She was an excellent cook. One favorable dish was her chicken and dumplings, and the stories of her favorite chickens that made those meals special.

Alexander and Lena Burden; seven grandchildren, three step-grandchildren, several great-grandchildren, one great-great-grandchild; and nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by: her husband, Leslie King; one brother, Charles Jack Foster; and her sister, Virginia Katherine Foster Green.

Funeral services will be conducted 1 p.m., Friday, April 12, 2013, at the Combs, Parsons & Collins Funeral Home, 328 W. Main St., Richmond, with Rev. John D. Cravens officiating. Burial will follow in the Flatwoods Cemetery.
