As we gather in the spirit of celebration to honor the life of a well-loved member of the Armstrong & Knight family, our hearts are heavy, but we are thankful for the beautiful years our loved one remained here on earth. The life of Rose Mary Armstrong began on November 12, 1954, on Saint Simons Island, Georgia, when God blessed the late Rosa Mae Armstrong Thomas with a precious baby girl. She was an amazing, honest, kind, accepting, and outspoken mother, daughter, sister, aunt, grandmother, and friend.
Rose Mary received her formal education in the public schools of Glynn County, matriculating at Glynn Academy High School in Brunswick, Georgia. She furthered her education by attending culinary school. As early as we can remember, our mom accepted Christ as her Savior. She was a faithful servant and recommitted every day. She was a member of First African Baptist Church.
Rose Mary Armstrong was united in holy matrimony with Earnest Knight on December 28, 1972, in Brunswick, Georgia. Their union was blessed with five children: E. Amari, Lawanna J., Tiffani C., Kenneth M., and Brianna A. Knight.
During her leisure time, she enjoyed cooking and baking (only when she really wanted to), walking, talking on the telephone, sitting in the yard, attending Bible Study and her church group, spending time with her family, laughing, dropping truth bombs, mothering, and encouraging everyone to do and be their best. She was employed by Food Lion (Harveys) as a deli manager and then as a receiver until her retirement.
Rose Mary Armstrong Knight departed this life on May 10, 2022. She was preceded in death by her mother, Rosa Mae Armstrong; husband, Earnest L. Knight; brother, Milton Armstrong; sister, Malinda Carter.
She leaves to cherish her memories: children, E. Amari Knight, Lawanna J. Knight, Tiffani C. Knight, Kenneth M. Knight, and Brianna A. Knight; grandsons, Jayvius M. Bowden, Jatavious E. Alford, and Kenneth M. Knight, Jr.; siblings, Loyranzy K. Armstrong, Tani S. Thomas Patterson, and Maisel C. Thomas; and several generations of nieces, nephews, cousins, family, and friends.
