In Loving Memory Julia P. King February 27, 1950 - February 20, 2020 Julia, 69 of Hanson, Massachusetts passed away on February 20th, 2020 at Webster Park Rehabilitation & Health Care Center from a short battle with Cancer.

She is survived by her darling husband Richard T King Jr. of over 45 years. Julia also leaves behind her beloved three children, and their spouses. Lance & Maureen King of East Bridgewater, Brien & Mallory King of Whitman, and Kimberley & Michael King - Cavicchi of Halifax. Julia cherished her seven grandchildren; Samantha Bourget, Ashley Wing, Coleman King, Aarron & Angeline King, and Oliver & Violet King. Julia also leaves behind her brother Chris Costa, cousins in Cape May, and a host of nieces, and nephews. Julia is preceded in death by her caring parents Albert & Hildegard Church, her brother - in - law Jeff King, the Krula sisters, and her gentle granddaughter Adreanna Wing.

Julia, Julie, Jules, Nanny, Mom, was known as the lunch lady. She worked as a cafeteria employee at South South Vo-Tech for over 20 years. The high school students also loved to harass her at her second job; Orange Julius, at the Hanover Mall. She loved her coffee, books, crafting, and chocolate. She took pleasure in making her children blush kissing her husband, and being fresh any chance, in any moment available to her. She was an avid Patriots, and Red Sox fan. She enjoyed the science and cooking channels. In the spring you would always find her tending to her Iris, Tulip, Lily, and Rose beds. She would be growing seedlings for her vegetable garden. She passed on her love of gardening, reading, cooking, baking, and canning to all.

Julia had a great, and wide taste in music: Frank Sinatria, Elvis, Queen, Motley Crue, Faith Hill, Toby Mac, Sarah McLanchian, Amy Grant, George Thorogood & The Destroyers, Jo Dee Messina, Gretchon Wilson, and Cher to name just a few! She enjoyed the beach, the crashing of waves, cranberry cove, chocolate or red wines, and the company of friends. Whenever she knew you’d be out saltwater fishing she’d remind you there was always room in her freezer for fresh cod fish! You’d never find her saying “NO” to her grandchildren. She so loved each and every one of them. Some of her favorite things she delighted in with her grandkids were blowing bubbles, crafting, coloring, cuddling, making them their favorite foods and delivering them; be it homemade baked beans to Coleman, fudge to Sam & Ashley, canned pickles to Ollie, or her fresh tomatoes to Kimberley’s kids, she also so enjoyed reading to her precious grandchildren. She’d never deny you a fierce game of cribbage, Life, Sorry, Monopoly, Uno, Connect Four, or Candy Land regardless of your age! Julia was her family's biggest cheerleader. She was firm, kind hearted, patient, spoke her mind bluntly, and had a sense of humor. Julia, Nanny, Mom was unique, one of a kind, and will be cherished in the hearts of her loved ones, and friends for eternity. The family wishes to thank Webster Park Rehabilitation & Health Care Center staff, nurses, and doctors for their round the clock care and Calvary Baptist Church for their prayers.

Visitation will be Monday, February 24th from 2:00PM - 5:30PM with a service at 5:30 in the funeral home.

                                                       When Tomorrow Starts Without Me

When tomorrow starts without me
And I’m not here to see
If the sun should rise and find your eyes
Are filled with tears for me

I wish so much you wouldn’t cry
The way you did today
While thinking of the many things
We didn’t get to say

I know how much you love me
As much as I love you
And each time you think of me
I know you’ll miss me too

But when tomorrow starts without me
Please try to understand
That an angel came and called my name
And took me by the hand

And said my place was ready
In Heaven far above
And that I’d have to leave behind
All those I dearly love

But when I walked through Heaven’s gate
I felt so much at home
When God looked down and smiled at me
From His great golden throne

He said this is eternity
And all I promised you
Today your life on earth is past
But here it starts anew

I promise no tomorrow
For today will always last
And since each day’s the same way
There’s no longing for the past

So when tomorrow starts without me
Don’t think we’re far apart
For every time you think of me
I’m right here in your heart
