Bingham King, 34, died on June 10, 2013 in San Francisco,
California after a long battle with cancer. She is best
remembered for her courage, energy, enthusiasm, kindness,
spunk, and great love of life and people.
Sara was born on July 31, 1978 in Provo, Utah to Finch
M. Bingham and RaChel Anderson Bingham and raised in American
Fork, Utah. She attended American Fork High School, where
her gregarious and inclusive nature led her to develop numerous
close friendships. After high school, she attended college
in Utah before graduating from San Francisco State University
with a degree in Child and Adolescent Development.
While working at the Utah Valley Regional Medical Center,
Sara met Jamie King. They quickly fell in love and were
married in the Salt Lake Temple on Friday, August 13, 1999,
making Friday the 13th a special day for the couple. Together,
they lived in Provo and American Fork, Utah and Daly City
and San Bruno, California. They have three children, Jacob
(9), Parker (6), and Emma (3).
Sara was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ
of Latter-day Saints and actively participated in her congregation
wherever she lived. Even during her illness, she continued
her volunteer work leading the Primary organization (children's
ministry). She drew great strength from the love and simple
concern the children had for her.
Sara touched those who were fortunate enough to have known
her. She was often the friend people would call either to
celebrate or to cry with. As Sara found herself in need,
many people anxiously provided assistance in a variety of
ways. Their expressions of love and acts of service are
sincerely appreciated by Sara and her family.
Sara is survived by her husband; their three children;
parents, and siblings, LeAnne (Hansen), Cynthia (Parsons),
Lauren (Gardner), Devin, and Douglas. A funeral service
was held on June 14 at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day
Saints in San Bruno, California.
A viewing will be held on Monday, June 17, 2013 from 6:00
to 8:00 p.m. at Warenski Funeral Home, 1776 North 900 East
in American Fork, Utah. Following a brief graveside service
on Tuesday, June 18 at 11:00 a.m., Sara will be laid to
rest in the American Fork City cemetery. In lieu of flowers,
donations can be made for the benefit of Sara’s children.
