Mrs. Knotts was a graduate of Albemarle High School and Women’s College (now UNCG) and had a life long career in the Stanly County Schools as an elementary teacher. In the schools, she was known for her love of children, but her heart belonged to her family. She cherished her husband, children and grandchildren and will forever be remembered as a loving wife and mother.   

She is survived by sons, Tom Tindall Knotts and wife Kesha of Irmo; Mack Morton Knotts and wife Jeffrey of Greensboro, N.C.; grandchildren, Ben-jamin Knotts and Tindall Knotts, both of Greensboro, N.C. and Jaxon Knotts of Irmo. She is also survived by brothers, C.T.

The family extends a sincere thank you to Tidewater Hospice Staff, especially Precious, Kim, Dr. McCloy and Heather for the care and compassion shown to our mother during her illness. Also a special thank you to the ladies at Harbor Chase Memory Care.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to A.R.C. of Stanly County, (Association for Retarded Citizens), 530 Pee Dee Avenue, Albemarle, NC 28001, an organization she and her husband, along with other families in the community, founded.
