Ethel King

    Ethel Annetta King, 98, of Nampa, died Thursday, Jan. 23, 1992, in Nampa at the home of her daughter, Hilma (Mrs. Jess) Kennel.  Funeral services will be conducted at 2 p.m. Monday, Jan. 27, at the Alsip Funeral Chapel, Nampa.  The Rev. Tom Larson, pastor of Nampa First United Methodist Church will officiate.  Interment will follow at Hillcrest Memorial Gardens, Caldwell.
    Ethel Annetta King was born March 6, 1893, at Bedford, Iowa, the sixth child of Joseph and Annetta Jones Hoover.  At the age of 7 she moved with her family to Bartley, Neb., where she was reared and educated.  She married Frank King June 15, 1910, at Bartley where they made their home.  While in Bartley they farmed and they also owned and operated a restaurant and gas station.  In November 1934 they moved to Nampa and later purchased a farm in Kuna.  Mr. King died May 10, 1961, and she remained in Kuna.  In 1985 she returned to Nampa where she had since resided.  Ethel was very devoted to her family.  She was always concerned and caring for others.  We will miss her inspiration and her sense of humor.  One of her greatest pleasures was family potluck dinners and picnics.
    Ethel is survived by a son, Dean King, and his wife, Marge, Kuna; three daughters, Hilma Kennel and her husband, Jess, and Lois Turpen, Edna Gammill and her husband, Jerry, all of Nampa; 19 grandchildren; 42 great-grandchildren, 10 great-great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.
    Besides her husband she was preceded in death by two sons, a daughter, two grandchildren, three brothers and four sisters.
