Debra King

June 2, 1960 — May 16, 2022

Debra “Debbie” Kay Hiner King, 61, of Mountain Grove, passed away peacefully Monday, May 16, 2022 surrounded by love in her home where she has resided over the past 40 years.

She was born June 2, 1960 in Marlinton, WV, a daughter of the late Calvin Lee and Edna Marie (Wanless) Hiner. She was a graduate of Bath County High School’s Class of 1978.  Following graduation, she married her high school sweetheart and began working at Virginia Power and soon thereafter started a family.

She enjoyed gardening and photography, but above all Debbie loved to cook for her family and friends.  Debbie was a talented musician and played the keyboard for her church for many years.  She was also a respected youth pastor and an inspiration to all she spoke and taught.  Debbie will forever be remembered for her heart of gold and her homemade biscuits.

In addition to her husband, Gene, of 43 years, she is survived by her daughter, Suzee Lock and husband, Rory of Boston, MA; son, Scott King and wife, Holly of Gunnison, CO; brother, Calvin Edward “Eddie” Hiner of N.C.; sisters, Cindy Ray of Mountain Grove and Libby Ailstock of Alleghany County; grandchildren, Theodore Henry Lock, Henry “Huck” Eugene King and Ruby Claire Lock; as well as a number of nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her sister, Carolyn Sue Hoffman.
