Nora Belle (Moncrief) King, 83, of Monaca (Potter Twp.), passed peacefully Monday morning, October 11, 2021, at Heritage Valley Beaver. Born November 5, 1937, she was a daughter of the late Andrew McClelland and Ora Alice (Rogers) Moncrief.

An avid Steelers fan, a good cup of coffee and a puzzle book was how she spent the afternoon. You could always find her playing with the grand and great-grandbabies, as they were her world. Nora loved her family and will be remembered as a selfless wife and mother who always had a smile even when things were tough. She leaves to cherish her memory four daughters, Ora Lynn King-Riley, Ruth Ann (William) Norman, Jennifer (Brian) Lauck and Janelle King and Scott. A special daughter, Misty Brown. Eight grandchildren Ashlee (Kevin) Mason, Brandyn (Olga) Farrow, James Edward Riley, Jordan (Stephanie) Farrow, Marc-Anthony Riley and Victoria Jacobs, Gary and Giovanni Crivelli and Isaiah Leasha, great grandmother of Logan, Reagan, Jacob, Gabe, Mason, Liam, Marc-Anthony and Novalee.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her beloved husband Clarence E., brothers Andrew “Sonny” and John Oscar Moncrief and sisters Anna Faye Duke and Lila Jean Moncrief.
