1953 ~ 2017
It is with great sadness we announce the sudden yet peaceful passing of Holly Rose Knight on Sunday July 9th, 2017 at age 63. Holly was a most beloved wife, mother and friend.
Holly will lovingly be remembered by her husband of 42 years, James David Knight, daughter Kristen Grace Pritchard (Matthew), son Alexander James Knight, sisters Maureen Benson (Gord), Val Diell, Karen Diell, sister in-law Beth Knight and many nieces and nephews. Holly was predeceased by her parents Roy and Evelyn Diell, her brothers Blaine and Grant Diell, brother in-law Arthur Knight and her beloved dogs Saran and Nelson.
Holly was known as “Hollita” to many, and always loved having her friends and family around her. Our favorite memories of mom include time at her and dad’s Lee River home, where there was always a garage full of friends, music, dogs, laughter and good food. Mom would open her home to everyone in the community and it became a familiar place anyone could stop in for a good chat and a cold beer. Mom loved the close knit communities of Lee River and Lac Du Bonnet, which she has called home since 2011. Mom was an avid music lover and some of her favorite memories were of seeing Pink Floyd with her husband, Elton John with her daughter or just dancing in the living room with her husband, daughter and friends. Mom was never shy of a challenge; learning to drive at the age of 62 and buying her first car. We are so proud of you mom!
Holly’s family would like to send a sincere thank you to the Lac Du Bonnet RCMP, First Responders, and Ray Brennan for their heroic efforts that Sunday night. Also, thank you to Curtis and Jennifer Cornelsen for their support that night.
A private family gathering will be held at a future date.Print This Obituary & Condolences
