She had a life of both adventure and strife but overcame the obstacles she faced through her faith in God and the church which made her a stronger caring and loving person .She was always proudest of being a military wife, traveling to other countries and learning their ways and customs. After completing school, she worked as a dental hygienist for many years. She loved to read, do crossword puzzles and was an avid football fan. She was a loving mother and grandmother to her family and beyond. Many knew her as "Gradma Knox" and thought of her as their own. She will always be remembered for her patience, kindness and love.
