HEYBURN – Vicky Lee King, 63, of Heyburn, Idaho, passed away peacefully in Salt Lake City, Utah, on July 22, 2022, surrounded by her husband of 45 years and her three children.

Vicky Lee King (Wadsworth) was born on January 31, 1959, to Donald Chester Wadsworth and Ada Doreen Wadsworth in Blackfoot, Idaho. Vicky graduated from Shelly High in 1977, where she was very active in Drill Team, Volleyball, Basketball and Rodeo. She was a competitive athlete and avid horsewoman winning many rodeo queen titles. She had a deep love for animals as well as the outdoors. She loved camping, fishing, and trail riding. She was also a very talented seamstress often making all her own clothes and dance dresses.

In the fall of 1976, Vicky met Cory King; they began dating and fell in love. On March 12, 1977, Vicky and Cory were married at the Woodville Church and then later sealed for time and all eternity in the Idaho Falls Temple on March 12, 1981.

Vicky and Cory had three children, Mindy, Dustin, and Stephanie; In 1986, Vicky and Cory moved their young family to Burley, Idaho where they laid their roots. Vicky was very active in her children’s lives, always running them to dance classes, horseback riding lessons, piano, baseball, and skiing. She was active in her church and the school PTA. She was also a 4-H leader and loved teaching kids how to ride. Vicky loved horses and spent many years showing horses along with her daughters.

Vicky was an artist in many ways, whether it was dance, writing, crafts, cooking, or decorating; she had a special gift and it came easy to her. As her children grew and began to have families of their own she felt so much love and joy with all her grandchildren and was so grateful for those blessings.

Vicky was an excellent wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. Our hearts are shattered with the sudden loss of her. We are comforted knowing she was greeted by family, close friends, and her dearest pets when she left her worldly body and returned to her Heavenly Father.
