Knight, Peggy A

Peggy Ann Blocker Knight was born in Wilmot, Arkansas on June 21, 1937 to Cecil P. Blocker and Minnie L. Blocker. She spent her early childhood years in Wilmot among a large, loving family group. Her immediate family moved to Bastrop, Louisiana during her high school years and she graduated from Bastrop High school in 1955.

rn

She met her future husband Thomas L. Knight Jr. in high school and they became lifetime sweethearts. They married on May 31, 1956 and their daughter Beverly G. Stewart was born on December 2, 1957 in Ruston Louisiana.  Their second daughter Becky L. Crum was born in Savanna, Georgia on October 19, 1960.

rn

After a lifetime of moving around the country, Peggy and Tom moved to Kingwood, Texas  and became pioneers of Kingwood when it was little more than a concept  for a suburban community. She became the manager of the Kingwood visitor’s center and was the first friendly face most visitors to Kingwood encountered.

rn

Peggy and Tom helped found Kingwood United Methodist Church and became charter members. She cherished the friends made in the early days of Kingwood, and rose to the challenges of a new community and the formation of a new Church.

rn

After retiring, she and Tom built their dream home on Lake Livingston, Texas and spent many happy years there. Her grandchildren have so many fond memories of visits.

rn

They moved back to Kingwood almost 20 years ago and Peggy visited and then joined the Second Baptist Church. She was blessed with so many caring friends in Second Baptist.

rn

Peggy is survived by her husband, two daughters, seven grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren.

rn

May she forever rest in peace in the presence of GOD.
