Mother Exie King Obituary

Mother Exie M. King was born in Talbot County on September 27, 1923 to the late Mr. Mank Steverson and Mrs. Exie Lee Smith Steverson who both preceded her in death.

Mrs. Exie began her work life at an early age in the “fields” as it was called and then she became a nanny, cooking and cleaning in homes. After progression in life, Mother King went to work at Playtex in Manchester, GA for 35 years before her retirement.

At an early age, she joined New Hope Baptist Church where she began serving in the choir and the deaconess ministry alongside her late husband. She then, later joined the Woodbury Miracle Fellowship Center under the leadership of her Pastor Bishop Thomas Daniels. She was a faithful member and an active Mother of Woodbury Miracle Fellowship Center until her health began to decline. Mother King resided at the Warm Springs Nursing Home for twelve years, beginning December 7, 2012, until her Lord and Savior called her home on December 2,2023 peacefully.

Mother King, as she was affectionately called, was a loving person who spiritually guided anyone who she encountered. Mother King was an ordained missionary servant and she often held bible study in her home on Wednesdays. She had a profound spiritual effect on the many lives she touched at the Warm Springs Nursing Home. She was known for making the best “old fashioned” pound cake that was enjoyed by her family and friends.

Mother Exie King was adored by her loving late husband Deacon John Henry King whom she was married to for 25 years before his passing.

She leaves to cherish her loving memories three children: Pauline Hardnett (Arthur Clarence) of Atlanta, GA, Barbara Carter (James) of Manchester, GA , Jesse Steed (Amy Westberry) of Manchester, GA. One stepdaughter, Mildred Reeves of Atlanta, GA, and a God Daughter, Mary Dunn of Manchester, GA: Nine grandchildren; 19 great grandchildren; and a host of great-great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends who loved her dearly.
