Virginia M. Knight

October 5, 1927 — August 9, 2020

Virginia Knight, 92, of Punta Gorda, FL passed away on Sunday, August 9, 2020. She was born on October 5, 1927, to Bob and Bessie Ernest in Punta Gorda, FL.

Throughout her many years in Punta Gorda and Boca Grande, Virginia enjoyed helping with the family business, Knight Brothers Boat and Marina, and within the local community.  She lovingly raised her 4 children and as the family grew became a doting grandmother to her wonderful grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  Virginia was married to her beloved husband Johns for 67 years prior to his passing in 2014 and together, they traveled throughout the country in their motorhome.  She also found delight in gardening and attending Bluegrass shows.  Mostly, she adored spending time with family and friends.

Virginia will be deeply missed by her daughter Virginia Knight; sons Thomas A. Knight, Johns (Shelia) Knight, and Eugene (Cynthia) Knight; multiple brothers and sisters; 7 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren.
