KNIGHT, Gertrude, age 74, a long-time resident of Beavercreek, passed away on Sunday, July 29, 2018 at Miami Valley Hospital.
Born in 1943 in Muskegon, MI, Gertrude received an Associate’s Degree in Business Administration in 1963. She enjoyed a long and successful career as a medical transcriptionist starting in Lansing, MI and moving on to the Dayton, OH area, including a long tenure at Miami Valley Hospital. Gertrude - “Trudie” to many - enjoyed reading, science, and cooking. She was continuously curious and was famous for winning Trivial Pursuit, each and every time. Highly intelligent and unafraid to express herself, she took a great deal of joy in enjoying good conversation over good food.
She is survived by, and will be missed by, her daughter, Janice Funkhouser, son Harry Knight, daughter-in-law Mary Bender Knight, granddaughter Eleanor Knight, and many beloved nieces, nephews, grand-nieces, and grand-nephews.
