Vanessa King, born May 14, 1985, in Hayward to parents Ana and Paul King, parted this world on Nov. 24, 2022, on Thanksgiving Day, at age 37. She’s now reunited with her first-born daughter, Natalie.

She leaves behind two beautiful children — Mckaela, age 11, and Joseph, two years old, as well as her siblings, Pablo King, Susana King, Emely King, Miguel King and sister-in-law Mayra King, as well as her niece, Angelina King, and nephews Jonathan King and Daniel King, and a very large extended family who loved her dearly. She was loved by everyone who knew her. She loved the Lord and had a personal reencounter with God before her passing. She touched many people’s life in her short time on this Earth. She was a selfless, loving person.

Growing up she had a great sense of humor and a bubbly personality. She was very outgoing and loved to play sports all through her school years. She attended St. Bernard’s Elementary and part of high school and finished out her high school years at Eureka High. She attended Fredrick and Charles beauty college and got her cosmetology license. If you ever needed anything Vanessa was the first person you could go to because she was always ready to help everyone and anyone in any way, shape and form.

One of our daughters favorite quotes was “in happy moments praise God, in difficult moments seek God, in quiet moments trust God, in every moment thank God.” To love forever is to have you forever. I will love you forever, my beautiful daughter. Love, Mom and Dad.
