Florine Hart was born July 1, 1923 to Leslie Lee (Buck) Hart and Florence West Hart.  Although born in Waycross, Georgia, Florine was raised in Valdosta, Georgia.  She married the love of her life, DeWitt King, who has preceded her in death.  Mrs. King worked many, many years for the City of Bainbridge.  She was the city treasurer.  Florine loved to read and play games on her computer.  As much as she enjoyed those things, her real love was her church.  She was a faithful member of the First Baptist Church for 69 years.  She was a member of the Saints Alive Choir, Helen Lane W.M.U. (treasurer), and Lydia Sunday School Class.  Mrs. King was also a member of the Eastern Star.  Florine loved to help people.  She never had a bad word to say about anyone.  Florine King adored her family and will be sorely missed by all.
