Sister Lillie B. Jones Walker King was born on April 6, 1916 in Cedar Creek, Texas. She was the fifth of eleven children born to the late Isiah and Pearlie Jones. Her transition took place at 2:24 a.m., Monday, January 24, 2011.

Sister King professed her belief and trust in Christ in 1929 under the leadership of Rev. R. Q. Allen, Mt. Olive Baptist Church, Cedar Creek, Texas. She united in holy matrimony to the late Willis C. Walker and moved to San Antonio, Texas where she joined the Antioch Baptist Church under the leadership of Rev. R. Wilson. In 1952, her husband became ill and she moved her family to Austin, Texas. He passed a few months after the move leaving her with four girls to rear. In 1953, she united with Greater Mt. Zion Baptist Church under the leadership of Rev. J. H. Washington. She remained a member for over forty-eight years serving under the leadership of Pastor N. W. Bacon and currently served under the leadership of Pastor Gaylon C. Clark, until her transition. She served faithfully in various capacities of her church: Mission I - Chairperson of finance; Elizabeth Circle: as Treasurer, as 2nd Vice President, as Vice President and served on the Calling Committee. She then became president of Elizabeth Circle where she serve for many years; she also served as a Nurse on the Nursing Board and as Chairperson of the Nurses' Social Committee until her health started to fail her. Sister King was a devoted Christian, a virtuous woman, a beautiful person, a friend to all who knew her, a loving mother, grandmother and great-great-great grandmother (6 generations).

Sister King devoted her life to working and raising her four girls on a limited income from Social Security and working two or more domestic jobs. She raised her girls up in church and, through her faith in God, hard work and many prayers, gave them a good education. They all made her thankful and so very proud by becoming Christians and productive and professional citizens.

Later years, she married the late Israel King and moved to Bastrop, Texas. This marriage ended shortly after she returned to Austin.
