Cathy Jean McKnight was born July 9, 1962, in Columbus, Ohio to the late Delores Hill and Freddie McKnight.

Cathy attended Columbus City Schools and earned a degree in Horticulture from North Adult Education Center. Cathy was a member of New Life United Methodist Church, and regularly volunteered at the United Methodist Free Store, Saint John’s Community Kitchen, and school field trips with her grandchildren.

Cathy was a very hands-on person and was an avid reader. She also loved baking, sewing, fishing, gossiping on the phone, and watching The Young and the Restless. Most of all, she enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren. She treated each one of them as if they were royalty.

Cathy is preceded in death by her parents, Delores Hill and Freddie McKnight; and brothers, Lee Roy McKnight and Robert Lee McKnight.

Cathy is survived by her loving daughter, Atiya R. McKnight; son, Troy L. McKnight; significant other, Walter C. Smith; sisters, Rosetta M. Johnson, Debra M. McKnight Calhoun, and Leslie Terry; grandchildren, Darryl V. Henderson-McKnight, Ky’Li M. Henderson-McKnight, Aubrey R. McKnight, Jonathan J. Jones, and Nyerobi A. Jennings; best friend, Toyna Reid; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
