Obituary for Betty Knox

“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God,
believe also in me.”
John 14:1
Mrs. Betty Jean Knox was born on April 6, 1942 in
Telfair County, Georgia to the late Lacy and Willie E. Hill.
She attended House of God Church for many years and later
joined Elizabeth Baptist Church in Hazlehurst, Georgia.
Betty married Ira Lee Knox and from this union eight children
were born. She worked for the Jeff Davis County School
Systems until she retired. While at home she spent most of her
time caring for her children, grandchildren and greatgrandchildren.
Betty also enjoyed long fishing trips, having
family gatherings, and sitting on the porch speaking to
everyone who passed by.
After a long, tough battle with her illness, Betty was
called to be with the Lord on July 29, 2018 at the Vidalia
Community Hospice. She was preceded in death by her
husband, Ira Lee Knox; two children, Ivory Dewayne Knox
and Loretta McLain; one grandchild, Mahlon D. Wilcox; her
parents, Lacy and Willie E. Hill; six siblings; Mammie Ruth
Hill, Willie Ethel Bennett, Louise Bennett, Idella Hill, Austin
Hill and James Hill.
She leaves to cherish her memories six children: Mae
Kornegay, Virgina (Dwaine) Wilcox, Thomas (Felicia) Knox,
Willie Knox, Tammy (Roy) Smith, and Shanterria Knox all of
Hazlehurst, GA. Two sisters: Clara Williams of Helena, GA
and Rose Smith of Chicago, IL. Nine In-laws: Queenell
Pierce, Rosetta Knox, Josie Lee Jackson, Genether Ellis,
Reverend Pearlene Reed, Reverend Willie C. (Dorothy) Knox
all of Hazlehurst, GA and Apostle Benjamin (Mary) Knox of
Atlanta, GA. She also leaves to cherish in her memories thirty
grandchildren, twenty-seven great grandchildren, and a host
of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. She will be
remembered by a very special family friend, Frankie Brown.
