KNIGHT, Mary Elizabeth (Pearl) Was born on December 31, 1926 in Kingston, Jamaica; the only child of Adora Bennett and Isaac Watson. In 1946, Pearl immigrated to Boston to live under the watchful eye of her father's sisters. But shortly thereafter, the bright red coat she wore attracted the eye of Patrick E. Knight. They were married in September, 1949 and were joined later by son, Charles and daughter, Patricia. They spent fifty eight years together until Patrick's passing in 2007. Mary leaves behind her beloved children, Charles and Patricia, her adored grandchildren, Christian, Byron and Janel, their spouses, Kalimah, Sacha and Harold, her great-grandsons, Elias, Kaleb, Kai, and Joseph, many cousins, nieces, nephews, and a host of friends and neighbors who will truly miss her hearty laugh, her wisdom and her rice and peas. A life well lived. There will be a Viewing on Saturday, July 9, 2016 from 9:30 to 11:00am followed by Funeral Service at 11:00 O'clock at St. Cyprian's Church, 1073 Tremont Street, Roxbury, MA Interment: Blue Hill Cemetery, Braintree, MA.
