Ruby Mae Knight, 84, of Mutton Hollow, passed away peacefully on Thursday, May 4, 2017. She was born on April 21, 1933 in Greene County to the late Jake and Addie Deane.

In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by her loving husband, Jessie Knight and two children, Winston and Velma Knight.

Mrs. Knight was a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother who dedicated her life to her family and church. She touched the hearts of all she encountered and was affectionately known as Granny. She loved her Pepsi, coffee, all animals and children. Her loving nature of always thinking of others first was with her until the end, along with her deeply devoted faith in the Lord.
