Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
DeLona Rochelle King was born in Lubbock, Texas to the parents of Donald Gene King (deceased) and Hazel Ailene (Tedford, King) Rodman.
She lived in Texas until 1975 when she moved to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. She loved having friends and with her personality it wasn’t hard to attract many. She was a BlueBird, took piano lessons and was a cheerleader for her brother’s Tri-City football team.
She attended Harvest Hills Elementary, Hefner Junior High and graduated from Putnam North High School.
After graduation she started working at McCartney’s Super Market. She then worked at Buy For Less after McCartney’s closed. When Buy For Less closed she went to work at Bed Bath And Beyond where she was employed for almost 20 years.. As you can tell by her work record, she was a loyal and long time employee at each job.
As everyone knows, she had the most beautiful smile and funny personality. People couldn’t help but be drawn to her. She loved life, her friends and her job. She loved a good joke or prank and was the biggest Thunder fan ever. She never missed a game and was always the first one to post on Facebook, “It’s game time let’s Thunder Up”. She was part of a group that commented all during the game. We had so much fun praising or bashing the players. We will miss all those fun times.
The love of her life was her Daughter, Kiara Janae. Those two were joined at the hip. They lived, shopped, ate and went everywhere together. She was so proud of her. Everywhere they went everyone would tell her how beautiful Kiara was and you could see her beaming with pride and joy.
DeLona is survived by her Daughter Kiara Jane Corneilus, her Mother Hazel Rodman, her sister Tanja Robbins and brother Trent King.
There will be a Celebration Of Life gathering June 10, 2017 at 1:00 pm at the Spring Creek Baptist Church 11701 N. MacArthur Blvd. in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

I’m so sorry for your loss. Delona was a wonderful person, so kind and thoughtful. I worked with her for 8 years and enjoyed every minute of it. It’s so hard to believe that she is gone, she will be missed by one and all.
