R.I.P. Barb

R.I.P. Barb
Barb in June 2003

I just learned from my sister-in-law that my cousin, Barb Knight, passed away. This blog post is in memory of her. Barb left behind many family members and friends who loved her dearly. She will be missed. My thoughts are with Barb’s husband and children and her brother and sisters, as well as with my Aunt Betty and Uncle Roy. How hard it must be to bury your own child. How much harder still to have this be a third child that they have had to bury. Although I am sad, I am happy that Barb is no longer feeling any pain. Barb is with the Lord whom she served well throughout her life.


Obituary for

Barbara D. Knight

Kittanning

(obtained from the Kittanning Leader Times newspaper)

Barbara “Barb” Darlene Knight, 43, of Kittanning, went to be with her Lord and Savior Monday, June 6, 2011, at Good Samaritan Hospice in Cabot after a courageous battle with cancer. She was born July 25, 1967, in Kittanning, the daughter of Roy J. Heilman Sr. and Betty M. (Bowser) Heilman. Barb attended Elderton High School and graduated from Lenape AVTS. People in the community most likely saw her friendly face at Klingensmith Drug Store, where she worked as a clerk. She was very involved with North Buffalo Grace Brethren Church, where she was a member of the Awana Club. Barb taught Sunday School since she was 15 years old and on Sundays the congregation could hear her and her family singing specials, as well as in the choir. It was as a wife and mother that she found her true calling, devoting herself wholly to her family. Her generosity, selflessness and unflagging support will be missed. Her love, expressed in words, in food and in time, will be irreplaceable. Her family loved her cooking-especially her baking. Barb’s greatest achievements were raising her family and teaching her children to follow the Lord. She was a wonderful wife, mother and friend to many and her memory will live on in their hearts forever. Left to cherish her memory are her parents; her husband, George Knight, whom she married June 13, 1987; her sons, Christopher L. Knight and wife, Stephanie, of Listie, and Joshua D. Knight, of Kittanning; her daughter, Kelsey R. Knight, of Kittanning; a brother, William A. Heilman, of Kittanning; and sisters, Sherry L. Sharp, of Goheenville, Donna J. Garner, of Dayton, and Tammy M. Iseman, of Kittanning. She was preceded in death by her brothers, Roy J. Heilman Jr. and Randy L. Heilman. Friends will be received from 7 to 9 p.m. Wednesday and 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday at BAUER FUNERAL HOME AND CREMATION SERVICES INC., 515 N. McKean St., Kittanning. An additional visitation will take place at 10 a.m. until the time of services at 11 a.m. Friday in North Buffalo Grace Brethren Church with her father-in-law, the Rev. George Knight and Rev. Robert Burns co-officiating. Burial will be in Lawn Haven Burial Estates, East Franklin Township, Armstrong County. Arrangements are being handled by Bauer Funeral Home and Cremation Services Inc. Memorial contributions may be made in Barb’s honor to Good Samaritan Hospice, 134 Marwood Road, Cabot, PA 16023.

    I just watched the tribute video that the funeral home put together. I watched the video, with tears streaming down my face. I missed so much of Barbie's life. I feel by watching the video I have seen a piece of Barbie's life that I missed. She was 7 years old, when I entered the Army. I didn't get to see her again, even on a semi-occasional basis, until 1998 when I moved back to Pennsylvania. I loved seeing Barbie's graduation picture, her and George's wedding picture and pictures of each of their children when they were born and as they grew up. Barbie was a beautiful child and grew up to be a beautiful woman, wife and mother.
