Billie Jo King


Billie Jo Croyle King, 37, of Shippenville, passed away on June 21, 2018 at Allegheny General Hospital following a brief illness due to a heart defect.


Born on January 5, 1981, she was the beloved daughter of David K. and Penny M. (Pitts) Croyle who survive. She attended Clarion Area High School.


Billie Jo worked as a truck service advisor at Travel Centers of America in Brookville.  She enjoyed taking time to spend with her family and being outdoors.  She loved spending time with her daughters and family.  She liked hiking and camping at Cook Forest.  She also liked going to the casino in Seneca and playing scratch-offs.  She was a member of VFW 2145 Ladies Auxiliary.  She loved going to games and races for her kids, nieces and nephews.  She was always smiling and offering a hug, really and truly enjoying life!
