Phyllis Jean Knight, 91, Sidney, Ohio, passed away on Monday, January 13, 2020 at Wilson Memorial Hospital at 12:30 AM.   She was a loving mother, grandmother and great grandmother.   She was a life long resident of Sidney, Ohio and was born on August 11, 1928 to Harvey and Goldie (Flanagan) Young and they are deceased.   Her life was not always easy but was a life well lived.   She was married to Kenneth R. Knight and he is deceased.  She had three children, Kent Knight, Kim (Steve) Kendall and Karen Knight.   Kent Knight and Kim Kendall are deceased.   Surviving are grandchildren, Kathy (Brant) Cook, Karie (Mike) Seubert, Cheri Suggs, and Kevin Kendall, and great-grandchildren, Alex, Evan, Cameron, Jordan, Kylie, and Keagan.   Throughout her life, she was known for her quick wit and enjoyed the many friends she met working at the Imperial House Restaurant, Sidney Aluminum, Stolle Corporation and later volunteering at Wilson Memorial Hospital.   In her free time, she enjoyed flea marketing, traveling, quilting, reading, and spending time with her family, especially on a gorgeous Sunday afternoon.   Living by the mantra, “This too shall pass,”   Phyllis lived her life with little regret.   Burial will be at a later date.   In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the Shelby County Animal Rescue Foundation (SCARF) to honor Phyllis’s beloved cats, George and Gracie.   Salm-McGill and Tangeman Funeral Home in Sidney, Ohio is honored to be serving the Knight Family, taking care of Phyllis’s funeral arrangements.   Condolences may be expressed to the Knight family on Salm-McGill and Tangeman Funeral Home’s web site at:
