Carol A. (Paarmann) King Heiney
Carol Aulda Paarmann King Heiney passed away Sept. 23, 2013, at Elkhorn Rehab and Healthcare in Clancy, Mont. Carol just wore out due to complications of diabetes.

Carol was born Aug. 1, 1936, in Clinton, to Malvern Ardie Paarmann and Aulda Block Paarmann. She grew up on the family farm near DeWitt with her three older brothers. Carol was raised to know the importance of farming and family.

Carol married Norman F. King in May 1957, at Grace Lutheran Church in DeWitt. Carol and Norman settled in Davenport where they were blessed with two children, Denise and Brian.

Carol and Norman had a vibrant social life: they loved dancing and entertaining. They participated in the Holy Cross Lutheran Congregation in Davenport and the Jaycees and Jaycettes. Norman passed away following a tragic car accident in 1965.

In August 1967, Carol married Vernon Ralph Heiney, and the family moved to Rogers, Ark. This union was blessed with one child, Susan.

Ralph and Carol owned and operated the Jan-Lin restaurant and drive-in. Carol was also a chef at Lost Bridge Resort in Garfield and retired from Emerson Electric in Rogers. Carol and Ralph loved gardening and had a large vegetable garden in their back yard.

In April 2003, Carol moved to Montana to start a new adventure. She lived at Rosetta Assisted Living in Helena and then Elkhorn Healthcare in Clancy.

Carol was a woman of many stories, including sharing Sam Walton's tipping style and how Paul Harvey had a segment on his program about the Christmas star in her front yard in Rogers.

Carol loved bingo and crafts. On Fridays she looked forward to trips to thrift stores, she called this "goodwillin." On her birthday, Carol would gather with friends at a local pizza parlor and have pizza and a Pabst Blue Ribbon beer.

Carol was preceded in death by Norman King and Ralph Heiney, her parents and brother, Kenneth of DeWitt.

She is survived by two brothers Glenn and Wayne Paarmann of DeWitt; a brother-in-law, Ralph King of Lowden; sisters-in-law, Charlene Paarmann of DeWitt and Virgie Roth Blackwell of Missouri; a brother-in-law, Glenn Heiney of Fort Worth, Texas; children, Denise King (L. M. Minich) of Jefferson City, Mont., Brian (Mary) King of Colorado Springs, Colo., and Susan (Brad) Heiney Edwards of Fayetteville, Ark.; a step-daughter, Mary Jo Herman of Hawkinsville, Ga.; and grandchildren Parker King of Chicago, Ill., Lindsey King of Colorado Springs, and Darianna Edwards of Fayetteville.

Special thanks for the kindnesses shown by the staff at Rosetta Assisted Living in Helena and Elkhorn Rehab and Healthcare in Clancy as well as Hospice of St. Pete's and Dr. Jessica Bailey.

Funeral services will be in DeWitt at Grace Lutheran Church Oct. 19, at 10 a.m., followed by a luncheon.
