Lelia Nicole King

July 27, 1991 ~ July 16, 2022 (age 30)

Obituary

Lelia Nicole King was born on July 27, 1991, to Bernice Bowman and Anthony Whitten. She was the youngest of two on her mother’s side but the third child born to her father. A beautiful and happy baby girl born and raised on the north side of town, Lelia was loved amongst everyone she encountered from an early age.  She attended Walnut Ridge High School and graduated from Premier Academy in 2008. She loved to draw and read books. Lelia was also a diva who loved doing her hair and makeup and posted many pictures of her witty and outgoing personality. Lelia was the person who would give her last, she never showed what she may be going through because she always wore a smile on her face. The best moment in her life is when she gave birth to a baby girl in May of 2017. Zakiyah was her world.  She vowed to be the best mommy and give her daughter anything her little heart desired. Motherhood for Lelia
was the most important thing in her life, and she made sure to tell her she loved her every single day. Lelia was loved by many and will be missed by many more. To know her was to love her, and she had a spirit that would draw even a stranger in. Her smile was contagious and that will be missed the most.

Lelia was preceded in death by her grandmother, Lelia Hunter, and grandfather, Paul Dean Williams.

She is survived by her daughter, Zakiyah Curry; mother, Bernice Bowman; father, Anthony (Tesha) Whitten; aunt, Brenda (Redel) Norman; uncles, David (Chanel) King and Greg (Norma) King; brothers, Marquis (Bandanna) Dale, Titus Moore, and Uzziah Whitten; sisters, Tiffany Williams, CeCe Coleman, and Chynna Whitten; special friends, Melissa and Kristy; and a host
of neices, nephews, cousins, and friends.
