REMEMBERING CATHERINE C. KING

Aug 14th, 2009 | 0

    Following the loss of Catherine Campbell King, local officials and friends took pause to honor the remarkable woman who served as a Walton County school teacher and Clerk of Courts from 1981-1996.
Current Clerk of Courts Martha Ingle said, “Catherine King was a dear friend and outstanding mentor to me during her tenure as Walton County Clerk from 1981-1996.  She was very passionate about fulfilling the duties of her office and serving the citizens of Walton County.  I am honored to have worked for such an outstanding person and will forever hold her close to my heart.”
Ingle noted that King was the progenitor of implementing technology into the Walton County courts. The first personal computer in the clerk’s office was purchased by King.
Ellen Mayfield, a close friend of King’s, commented, “Catherine was a wonderful, caring, compassionate, very family-oriented woman. The community was always her focal point and she was a wonderful public servant.”
County Commissioner and relative to King, Kenneth Pridgen said, “The family is going to miss her.”
County Administrator Ronnie Bell, said, “I’ve known Mrs. King for about 35 years. She is one of the finest ladies I’ve ever worked with. She was always caring, supportive, willing to help. She always hugged your neck, and always spoke to you. I just love Mrs. King.”
The resounding sentiment from all is that Catherine King never met a stranger and she will be truly missed.
