MASON CITY - Nancy Jo Rodriguez, née King, passed away on May 6th, 2018, at the age of 59, at the Laurels of Pender Nursing Home in Burgaw, NC.
Nancy Jo, the daughter of Joseph H. King (Hazel) and Phyllis G. Hesley (Gerald), was born November 9th, 1958, at the St. Joseph Mercy Hospital, in Mason City, Iowa. She graduated from Mason City High School in 1978, attended Spencer Business College in 1979 and attended Job Corps where she studied in culinary and hospitality occupation. Nancy married and moved to Texas in 1981 where she lived out most of her life.
Nancy was blessed. We were able to find a nursing facility that took very good care of her and made her feel important, as she did the same in return.
She will be profoundly missed.
She is survived by her three children; Arturo Joseph Rodriguez (Debra) of Waterloo, Gustavo Rodriguez Jr. (Angela) of Alice, TX and Joseph Henry Rodriguez of Alice, TX; her three wonderful grandchildren, Emma, Glenn and Charles; her father, Joseph H. King of Jacksonville, NC; her brothers, William L. King of Mason City, Thomas A. King of Dows, Joseph P. King of Jacksonville, NC, Michael Hesley of Seattle, WA and Kelley Hesley of Albert Lea; and her sisters, Treasa Harms of Hampton, Karen Hubacher of Jacksonville, NC, Pam Kleven of Mason City, Nancy Gail Young of Manly, LaNaya Angell of Mason City, Michelle Couch of Mason City and Shirley McAndrews of San Diego, CA.
Nancy was preceded in death by her parents; Phyllis and Gerald Hesley and Hazel D. King; her brothers, Dennis M. Eenhuis and Dennis Hesley; and her sisters, Denese Potter and Marcene Flores.
A memorial service will be held at a later date.
