Kissie Jane (Gomez) King,
US Navy

07/27/1972 ~ February 13, 2023
Kissie was called to the Lord on February 13, 2023, at the age of 50, after battling diabetes for 16 years. She grew up in San Antonio, in the 70’s and attended John Marshall High School, where she participated in the band. Kissie loved music.
At the old age of 25, Kissie joined the Navy, and served her country for nine years as a Torpedo Man’s Mate on the USS Cole.
While her passing broke our hearts, we are comforted by her family as well as her many wonderful relatives and friends. They were the light of her life and Kissie enjoyed every minute she spent with all of them.
Kissie spent her final days under the loving care of her niece, Samantha Gomez, who devoted years to her wellbeing.
We miss her more than words can convey. Because of her tireless efforts to serve her country, family and friends, she was always there when we needed her. She was the first of nine children and nine cousins.
Kissie was preceded in death by her father, Leroy Stine; her grandparents, Martina Madrigal Davis, Harold Davis, and Louis R. Gomez.
