Hattie King Life and Times

Hattie Bell King was born on September 24th, 1920 and completed her earthly journey on February 9th, 2024 at the age of 103. She was the daughter of the late General Lee Roberson and Norma (Bowdon) Roberson of Gordon, Alabama.

Hattie’s early acceptance of Christ laid the foundation for a life filled with purpose and service. Her commitment to her faith was evident in every aspect of her life and inspired many within her community. She was a faithful member of Philadelphia Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of the late Rev. B.F. Magwood and current pastor Rev. Dr. W.J. Dean.

Hattie attended school in the Houston County School District. As a young lady she met the late Haston King from Headland AL, their relationship resulted in marriage. The couple relocated north to New York City where Hattie began a career as a seamstress and became an expert at tailoring clothing. Hattie returned to Gordon Alabama to care for her ailing father in 1971.

As an active member of the community, Hattie was a Gordon City Council Member. Her Church affiliations included The Missionary Society, The Matrons Society, and President of the Philadelphia Baptist Church Senior Choir. She was well known in Gordon and the surrounding communities for baking delicious home-made cakes and pies.

Those who knew Hattie can attest to the love she held for her family. She leaves behind a legacy of warmth and devotion in her loving daughter Jackie Burgess (James Conyers) and her son Ronald King. Her memory will be forever cherished by her Grandsons Andre (Annette) Burgess and Eric Smith; Great Grandsons Andre (Niya) Burgess Jr., Mekhi Burgess and Mason Smith; Great Great Granddaughters Yuri and Yani Burgess and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends who will continue to honor Hattie’s memory through the love and kindness she extended to others.

Hattie’s legacy is not one of sorrow but of celebration—a celebration of a life that exemplified the virtues of kindness, generosity, and uncompromising faith. Her passing leaves a void in the hearts of those who knew her, but her spirit remains a guiding light.

Her journey on earth may have concluded, but the seeds of goodness she planted in the hearts of many will continue to blossom, spreading the beauty of her spirit across many generations.
