Carol Marie Knight Reck Obituary
CAROL MARIE KNIGHT RECK Carol passed away on January 24, 2013 peacefully in her sleep after suffering a stroke on Thanksgiving Day. Born in Gallatin, Missouri on April 2, 1925, Carol graduated from Enterprise Academy in Kansas where she met her future husband of 49 years, Arthur Reck. Carol and Arthur were married in November 1946 after he returned from the war. They lived in Washington state and Oakland, California before moving to Riverside in 1950, both eventually working and retiring from Rohr Aircraft. Throughout her motherhood, which included 2 sons and 3 daughters, Carol always worked. She taught her children self reliance, honesty and the value of work. In retirement, Carol loved playing bridge with all her friends, who will undoubtedly miss her deviled eggs and pineapple dream cake. Carol was preceded in death by her mother, Mabel Grace Knight, father, Jesse Ray Knight, sister, Mary Willard and husband Arthur Reck. She is survived by Arthur Dennis, Deborah, Carol, Kelly and Joanne Reck and 7 grandchildren. She will be forever remembered as a supportive and loving wife, mother and grandmother. We will miss you mom. A memorial service will be held at Akes Family Funeral Home, 9695 Magnolia Ave. in Riverside, CA on Jan. 31 at 2:30pm with a reception to follow.
