“The staff of Dunbar Funeral Home extends sincere condolences to the family of Mrs. Jane Knotts.
13 of 13 | Posted by: Jessica P. Kline
A memorial service for Mrs. Jane Redwine Knotts, will be held at First Baptist Church, Albemarle, N.C. on Monday, January 14, 2013 at 3:00 p.m. The family will greet friends from 2:00 until 3:00 p.m. in the parlor of the church. Dunbar Funeral Home, Dutch Fork Chapel, Irmo assisted the family.
Mrs. Knotts went home to be with the Lord on Friday, January 11, 2013. Born April 16, 1930 in Albemarle, N.C., she was a daughter of the late Clay Tom and Kate Clark Redwine. She was the wife of 53 years, of the late Don Morton Knotts, whom she adored. She was a member of First Baptist Church, Albemarle. Mrs. Knotts was a graduate of Albemarle High School and Women's College (now UNCG) and had a life long career in the Stanly County Schools as an elementary teacher. In the schools, she was known for her love of children, but her heart belonged to her family. She cherished her husband, children and grandchildren and will forever be remembered as a loving wife and mother.
She is survived by sons, Tom Tindall Knotts, and wife, Kesha, of Irmo; Mack Morton Knotts and wife, Jeffrey, of Greensboro, N.C.; grandchildren, Benjamin Knotts, Tindall Knotts, both of Greensboro, N.C. and Jaxon Knotts of Irmo. She is also survived by brothers, C.T. Redwine, Jr. of Albemarle, N.C., Robert Redwine of Columbia, S.C; and numerous nieces and nephews.
The family extends a sincere thank you to Tidewater Hospice Staff, especially Precious, Kim, Dr. McCloy and Heather for the care and compassion shown to our mother during her illness. Also a special thank you to the ladies at Harbor Chase Memory Care.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to A.R.C. of Stanly County, (Association for Retarded Citizens), 530 Pee Dee Avenue, Albemarle, NC 28001, an organization she and her husband, along with other families in the community, founded.
