Georgia Rae Knight

Georgia Rae Knight, 75 of Anchorage died Saturday, January 26, 2007 at the Horizon House in Anchorage.

A celebration of Georgia's life will be held 2 pm Saturday, February 2 at the Horizon House, 4140 Folker Street Anchorage. Her ashes will be scattered at a later date over Denali.

Georgia was born December 3, 1932, in Des Moines, Iowa to Thomas Joseph and Olive Mae (Denton) Sweet. Her family relocated to Lancaster, California, when Georgia was 5. She graduated from Los Angeles High School in 1951 and worked for Douglas Aircraft in Santa Monica.

She married Cornelious (C.J.) Knight on January 16, 1954 in Ensenada, Mexico. They raised 4 children. Georgia was active in the PTA, Boy Scouts and Camp Fire Girls.

Georgia and C.J. moved to Alaska toward the end of 1968. Georgia was a district manager for the Anchorage Times and later worked with her husband in his businesses, Home Electronics and Knight's Auto Radio.

She was a board member of ATOM (Ancient Teachings of Masters) Center, a professional astrologer, and a teacher and counselor to many in spiritual matters.

She cherished life and her family. Although she went through so much during her illness, she kept her quiet dignity and sense of humor to the very end. Georgia was a very special soul and was a friend to many. She possessed a universal wisdom that she lovingly shared with all. Her gentle touch comforted many. Her passing has left a large void in our lives, but our hearts remain full with her spirit.

Survivors included her husband of 54 years, Cornelious; her children. Alicia Knight, Jeffrey (Gina) Knight, Kathleen (Arthur) Helms, and Randal Knight; grandchildren, Anthony and Robert Ovitt; Brandon and Brian Nickerson, and Johanna, Julie, Jeffrey Keith, and Kayla Knight; onegreat grandson, Christian Magee-Knight, one sister, Mary Ann Pierce of Bellingham, WA; one brother, William J. Sweet of Ewa Beach, HI, and many nieces and nephews.

We would like to offer our heartfelt gratitude to those who provided her with such compassionate care during her illness, including Katmai Oncology Group, Providence Horizon House and Providence Hospice.

Arrangements are entrusted to the Hasara family at the Cremation Society of Alaska
