Geneva Mae McKnight was born on Sept. 4, 1931, to Albert and Minnie Howard in Lebanon, Oregon. She married Cleo McKnight on May 10, 1948, in Dallas, Oregon.
Besides being a devoted mother and homemaker, Geneva once worked as a grocery store manager and was a clerk for a seafood market. Most recently, she worked at Gearhart by the Sea. Out of all the activities in life, the one that gave Geneva the greatest joy was spending time with family.
Geneva was preceded in death by both her parents, Albert and Minnie Howard; her husband, Cleo McKnight; and two grandsons, Donald and Nicolas McKnight.
She is survived by her sons and daughters, Leslie McKnight, Lorry McKnight (Elaine), Nadine Scott (Brady) of Seaside, Oregon, Patricia Watson (Ron) of Turner, Oregon, and Zane McKnight (Sally) of Queen Creek, Arizona; her granddaughters and grandsons, Wendy Watson, Teresa Watson, Jacqueline McKnight and Cody Watson; her great-grandchildren, Derick Watson and Tessa Reither; her great-great-granddaughter Aariyah Paden; and many nieces and nephews.
A celebration of life is scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 9, 2017, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the American Legion Post 99, located at 1315 Broadway, Seaside, OR 97138.
