CRAIG/FLAGLER PALMS FUNERAL HOME
511 Old Kings Road South
Flagler Beach, Florida
Arlene “Nana” Knight 81, of Ormond Beach, Florida passed away on March 11, 2020 at the Halifax Health Hospice in Port Orange. She was born on December 29, 1938 to the late Henry Cobb and Lucile Bradley.
Arlene has lived in the Flagler County area for most of her life. She graduated from Bunnell High School where she played the saxophone in the band and was a majorette.
Arlene helped establish Knight Jon Boy and operated the business along with her daughter for many years. She was a longtime member of the Bunnell Methodist Church where she played the piano for the choir until her declining health forced her retirement.
In her younger years she was a seamstress with a talent of being able to pattern a dress just by looking at a style. In those earlier years she also owned a ceramic studio in Bunnell where she made many life-long friendships. Arlene enjoyed traveling the world, watching Soap Operas, taking care of her extensive orchid plant collection and casino trips but her greatest love in life was being a “Nana”.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Eldon Knight in 1999.
Survivors include her children, Kim Knight, Joni Fulford, Leta Knight; step-children, Linda Hogan, Lesa Colliflower, Lyna Knight; grandchildren, Christa Yanasheski, Nicole Mahler, Ashley Salazar, Mindi Fulford, Zachary Harris, Nicholas Knight-Lashbrook; 7 great-grandchildren and 1 expected great-grandchild; sister, Sue Lewis and many more loving relatives and friends.
A memorial service will be celebrated at a later date.
Arrangements are in the care and trust of Craig-Flagler Palms Funeral Home.
