Mae Hack King passed away peacefully on August 4, 2020 in Belle Haven, Virginia, at the age of eighty-eight. She was born on March 12, 1932 to the late Purnell and Etta Hack in Belle Haven, Virginia.

Mae received her education in the Accomack County Public Schools and was a graduate of Mary N. Smith High School. She was married to the late Samuel Elroy King, Sr.

At the tender age of fourteen, Mae dedicated her life to Christ and joined the New Mt. Zion Baptist Church, where she was a devoted member. After she got married, she joined Holy Trinity Baptist Church in Boston, Virginia. While at Holy Trinity, she was a faithful and dedicated Usher.

Mae worked various jobs throughout her life. Her last place of employment was at Perdue Farms, before she entered into retirement.

Mae’s hobby was cooking. She loved to bake cakes from scratch, bread pudding, and rolls. Her family and church family thoroughly enjoyed the treats.

Mae started each day with the same routine, watching Joyce Myers, Creflow Dollar, and Divorce Court. She would end her day with The Steve Harvey Show, the news, and Family Feud. On Saturday mornings, she would listen to the radio for church and funeral services. On Sunday mornings, she would listen to gospel music on the radio while she got ready for church.

Mae liked talking on the phone to her special friends, Dot Joynes, Mae Ayres, Sarah Lee Watson, Gladys James, Effie Harmon, Lucinda Riley, and Christine Williams. Her favorite saying was “Just keep living” and “Fine as wine with a cherry in it.”

In addition to her parents, Mae was preceded in death by her brothers, Edward, Dorsey, and Purnell, Jr.; sisters, Magalene Baines, Mary Lee Martin, Lena V. Cooper, and Elizabeth James; and daughter, Georgia E. E. King.

Left to cherish her fond memories are her children, Alice Mae Ashby of Baltimore, MD, Sharon (William) Skinner of Painter, VA, Samuel E. King, Jr. of Belle Haven, VA, Faye (Samuel) Scott, Vernon King both of Dover, DE, Alexander King of Belle Haven, VA, James King of Accomac, VA, and Connie King of Onancock, VA; nineteen grandchildren; thirty-five great-grandchildren; three great, great-grandchildren; one sister-in-law, Cleve Kellam; godson, Chester Kellam; two special young ladies that were like daughters, Karen Barrette of Painter, VA and Inetha Boone-Rogers of Suffolk, VA; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

i'm sorry for the loss of Mae Hack King. Mae was an extraordinary and a phenomenal women. I will always cherish the fond memories of a beautiful cousin. Mae had a great sense of humor and telling it like it is no matter who you were. Mae found a new doctor called Jesus who will now take care of her at the Pearly gates of Heaven . I'm going to miss her smile, cooking and not being able to see he when I come down. S.I.P my cousin. Love you Stacey Hack Atkins
