Kathie Ann Lindsay Knight (February 25, 1945 - June 22, 2023)

Kathie Ann Lindsay Knight age 78 was born February 25, 1945 in La Junta, Colorado.  She was preceded in death by her father Gaylord Clark Lindsay and her mother Katherine Stence Lindsay.  She is survived by her beloved husband of 54 years marriage David Stanley Knight, sons David Stanley Knight, Jr. and Steven Michael Knight, granddaughter Brittany Knight Welch and her family, granddaughter Kaylee Marie Knight, sister Holly Tatsch and brothers Gaylord Lindsay and David Lindsay. 

She spent most of her childhood in Rusk, Texas where she was valedictorian of her graduating class at Rusk High School.  She received a scholarship to Tyler Junior College then attended Stephen F. Austin University where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in biology and math.  Upon graduation she worked in the laboratory of Dr. Holland at Tulane University as a research technician in the field of ophthalmology.  In Shreveport, Louisiana she held several jobs including retail clerk, substitute teacher, respiratory therapist, and accountant, but her favorite was working for ten years as a lab technician at the T.L. Amiss water treatment plant. There she utilized her knowledge and passion for biology to test Shreveport's water to ensure it met EPA standards for water quality.

She loved gardening and for many years grew a garden in her back yard.  She was a prolific reader, and enjoyed music and travel.  She loved sewing, stitching and all sorts of arts and crafts.  She was also passionate about genealogy and did extensive research on the histories of the Knight and Lindsay families.  She also loved lighthouses and collected many pictures, books, and models of lighthouses.

Always caring and loving toward her family, Kathie was kind, selfless, generous and forgiving.  She was also very brave and courageous and fought an extremely tough battle with Alzheimer's disease during the last ten years of her life.  About a year and three months before her passing she suffered a serious fall resulting in a fractured hip.  She endured surgery to repair the hip and the subsequent recovery.  Even though most doctors she and her husband met with told them it was most unlikely she would ever be able to walk again, through sheer determination, hard work and perserverance she regained the ability to walk.

Words cannot express how devastated and sorrowful her family is at her passing, but they are relieved to know that she is in a better place and is no longer suffering.
