Beverly Jean King Worthley
WINDHAM -- Beverly Jean King Worthley, my wife and our mother, passed away at Mercy Hospital on Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2013, surrounded by her loving family.
She was the daughter of Daisy Florence Laughton King and Louis Temple King. A first generation American, Beverly was born on Aug. 20, 1932, in Portland. She grew up in Portland and graduated from Deering High School in 1950. She was working at First National Stores when she met her future husband, James Morrison Worthley Jr., while on a grocery shopping trip with her mother. For their first date, James took her dancing. Beverly and James were later married at Stevens Avenue Congregational Church on June 5, 1955. They would continue to dance, laugh and love each other for the next 57 years.
After retiring from Unum in 1995, Beverly continued to lead a very active, full life. She was a member of the Portland Eagles Ladies Auxiliary and the Portland Elks Club where she and James went dancing and bowling every week with their friends. She will be missed and lovingly remembered by many friends and family.
Beverly was predeceased by two of her brothers, Harry Alfred King and Louis E. King, and her half sister, Ruth Clara Powe Marston. She is survived by her husband, James 'Jim' Morrison Worthley Jr. of Windham; their three children, Susan Curtis and her husband Dane of Buxton, David Worthley and his wife Patty of Windham, and Cheryl Nichols of Windham; her brother, William King and his wife Barbara of South Portland; six grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; and many nieces, nephews and family members.
