Mrs. McKnight was an active and devoted member of the Auburn Hills Church of Christ of Woodbury, TN. She attended worship services regularly until her health began to decline. Through her illness, she remained strong in her love, faith and praise to Jesus Christ.
Mrs. McKnight dedicated her life to caring, giving and loving all who were in her presence. Throughout the years, she touched many lives, hearts and people of those in the community.

A strong legacy remains standing in Wordna McKnight’s honor.
