Mrs. Clary Juanita Knighton, 78, better known as "Pee Wee" or "Nita", passed away on Saturday, March 4, 2017, at West Georgia Hospice surrounded by her family. Funeral service will take place on Wednesday at 2 p.m., March 8 2017, at Chapel Hill Funeral Home with the Rev. Todd Hester officiating. Burial will follow at Maple Grove cemetery. The family will receive friends tonight from 6 - 8 at the funeral home. Born into humble beginnings on August 26, 1938, she was the youngest of eight children born to Jesse Lee and Lillian Chandler. Mrs. Knighton lived life like nobody was watching, whether she erupted into a song or dance anytime, anywhere or going shopping in hair rollers and house shoes. She loved to love people and demonstrated that best through her 36 years serving patients at Stringfellow Memorial Hospital. Mrs. Knighton will be affectionately remembered by her family and friends for her steadfast hospitality, affinity for Clinique, and her lessons on the proper way to make biscuits. Mrs. Knighton is preceded in death by her husband, Mr. Fred "Tubby" Knighton. She is survived by her children Joy Cornelius, of Tuscaloosa and Casey Knighton, of Lagrange, Ga.; grandchildren, Brandy Strickland, Ashley Hester (Todd), Jacey and Cody Knighton; five great-grandchildren, all of whom were her greatest treasures. Pallbearers will be Andrew Strickland, Scott Roszell, Shane Sprayberry, Jason Slick, Phillip Hazel and Kevin Spurlin. The family is overwhelmed by the kindness and care extended to Mrs. Knighton during her time at West Georgia Hospice. Flowers will be accepted or donations may be made to West Georgia Hospice, 1510 Vernon Road, Lagrange, GA 30240. Online condolences made at
