Obituary for Mildred Knowles (Scott)

Mildred  Knowles (Scott)
Mrs. Mildred Ruth Knowles, 91 of Walling, Tennessee passed away on Friday, March 9, 2018, at Life Care Center of Sparta.
Born Monday, January 24, 1927 in Sparta, Tennessee, she was the daughter of the late Thomas A. Scott, Sr. and the late Janie Borden Scott.
Mrs. Knowles was a longtime member of Corinth Church of Christ. She owned and operated Dilly Shop in Sparta for many years. After retirement, she spent time working in woodcrafts. Her interests were cooking, including her coconut cake, yellow cake, pecan pie, and many candies. She enjoyed the Shady Grove Community Group, which consisted of group dinner, card playing, square dancing, quilting, and gardening. Mrs. Knowles was a member of the American Legion Auxiliary and DAR, and really enjoyed attending Prime Time at Central Church of Christ. She worked with the commodities program and the election day process. She also worked in the Women's Building at White County Fair, where she won lots of ribbons for quilting, crocheting, and cooking.
Mrs. Knowles lived at home and drove until the age of 90, until just a few weeks ago. As she became unable to quilt and garden at age 87, she learned how to use an iphone and ipad to get texts and use Facebook.

Preceding her in death are her parents; her husband, W.T. George Knowles, Jr; brother, Tommy Scott; and friend, who was like a brother, Herbert Johnson.

Surviving are sons, Wesley Knowles (Bonnie) of Knoxville, Robert L. "Bob" Knowles (Debbye) of St. Louis, Kevin L. Knowles (Lisa) of Orlando, Florida; grandchildren, Robert Knowles of Sparta, Chris Reed of Prattville, Alabama, Cindy Sheldon of Knoxville, Kery Seay of Nashville, Mark Knowles of Florida, Stephanie Knowles of North Carolina, and Alexis Walker of Florida. 16 great grandchildren also survive.

Funeral services will be held at 3pm on Sunday, March 11, 2018 at Oak Lawn Funeral Home with John Pippin and Doyle Crawford officiating. Burial will follow in Oak Lawn Memorial Cemetery. Family will receive friends from 12 noon until the time of service on Sunday at the funeral home.

In lieu of flowers, contributions to Happy Haven Children's Home would be appreciated.
