Vickie Caroline (Sulton) King

October 2, 1946 ~ May 31, 2018 (age 71)

Vickie Caroline Sulton King left this earthly world to spend eternity with her Lord on May 31, 2018, after a brief illness. She was born on Oct. 2, 1946, to William "Bill" and Ann Sulton in Malvern, Ark.  She was a graduate of Malvern High School and Southern Arkansas University.

A retired educator with Crossett Public Schools, King enjoyed gardening, reading, crossword puzzles, the poetry of Dylan Thomas and Robert Frost, witty puns and Shakespearean insults. During retirement, she was committed to community service and worked with the Friends of the Crossett Public Library, the Retired Teachers of Ashley County and the Greater Crossett Area Food Pantry.

She is survived by three daughters Jennifer King Sinnema (Michael) of Crossett, Laura Apperson (Cody) of Fayetteville, and Sara King of Fayetteville; two sisters, Susan Grimm (Johnny) of Dallas, Tex., and Betsy Crawford (Kurt) of Malvern, Ark.; one brother Richard Sulton (Mitzi) of Malvern, Ark.; and three grandchildren, Caylie, Josie, and Casey, who were utterly adored. She is also survived by her ex-husband Larry King of Strong, Ark., with whom she successfully co-parented her children and maintained a close relationship until her passing.  She also left behind hundreds of students that she taught over the years. She referred to them as her "extra kids."

A Memorial Service will be held Wednesday, June 6 at 2 p.m. at South Main Baptist Church, 2801 S. Main St., Crossett.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Friends of the Crossett Public Library, the Greater Crossett Area Food Pantry or the Arkansas Children's Hospital.
