Mrs June Dillard Knight
June lived in the north central area of town, from which she could hop and skip playfully to McGuffey School with her friends.She was a very good student who helped with the McGuffey newspaper, participated in the Girl Scouts and other school activities.
Attending Lane High School, she exhibited the same attitude of interest in many facets of school life by working as editor-in chief of the Lane Times school paper, worked as editor of the Bumble Bee magazine, and she was on the staff to develop "The Chain" yearbook.She was very popular and participated in many social events.She attended Latin tournaments, played girls basketball 5 years, went to Girl's State, was in Christian Hi-Y and on the student council.She had many friends of whom many still live in this area.
After graduating from high school, she began working in the law firm of Waddell Coles and Richmond as a legal secretary, which prepared her for a future as legal secretary in the firm of Hunton Williams Gay Moore and Powell (who became Justice of the Supreme Court of the USA) in Richmond.
For several years she took Ballet and Tap dancing lessons form Alice Amory.Eventually, her ability put her in the position of teaching dance in The Alice Amory's School of Dance.Over the years she danced in many Lion's Club minstrel shows in Charlottesville.At that time she was also a sorority member of Beta Sigma Phi, a businesswomen's sorority.
In 1954, she renewed a friendship with a high school acquaintance, John Knight, and married him in 1957.Since he was attending dental school in Richmond, she accompanied him to Richmond where she worked in the above law firm.
God surprised them when in November of 1958 He sent them a beautiful baby boy who was named John H. Knight, Jr. (Jay).The love and happiness of having him as part of the new family, cemented the marriage during difficult times associated with attending dental school while the family wondered how to make ends meet.When John graduated from dental school in 1960 and was awarded his DDS degree, Junewas awarded her PHT (putting hubby through dental school) degree.
After graduation John and June returned to Charlottesville where they set up his dental practice.In September 1963 more love came into the family as another gift arrived, a son Colter Dillard Knight.Life was getting real good.June was so happy caring for the boys.Being an experienced mother she was thrilled to learn that another gift was coming.The boys were so happy to go to Martha Jefferson Hospital to bring mom and sister Heather Rae Knight home during the blizzard like conditions in December 1966.
June was a member of First United Methodist Church, a sustaining member of the Junior League, Farmington Country Club where she was very active in tennis and other social activities, and with John was a member of the VA Student Aid Foundation.She and John were loyal fans of basketball, football and other sports teams at UVA.They traveled many times to away events from coast to coast and north to south.
June was a devoted wife and mother, never missing any event involving her children whether it were a teacher's meeting or a sports event in Abilene, Texas or Maui; she was there.She was an excellent mother instilling morals, ethics and the value of education and work as attested to by the success her children have exhibited in their lives.June traveled widely and occasionally took her children even though the travel would take them to Europe or sailing in the British/US Virgin Islands.Her travel included all of Europe, some of Russia and the Middle East as far as central Turkey.She enjoyed many cruises from the North Sea, the Mediterranean, and the Pacific Ocean with all her close and dear friends.
After having a very healthy, vibrant life for 65 years, June developed a lingering illness which kept her close to the bed for seven years.During the last few months she suffered severely until she was freed from pain and the fetters of time and space.
On May 14, 2005 just as on September 30, 1932 when He brought June here He returned with June and together They left, leaving one set of footprints.Thanks be to God for allowing John to share forty-eight years of marriage with June and for the lives of her children whom He allowed her to create.
The family wants to express their sincere appreciation to the entire contingent of doctors, nurses, technicians and adjunctive staff at the University of Virginia Hospital for their tireless efforts, kindness, gentleness and expertise during June's 85 days at the hospital.A very special and sincere thanks to Jodean Chisholm, RN, UVA patient care manager and member of our family who so lovingly provided June and our family with her tireless love and support.
