Knowles
Thelma Muriel "Tilli" Knowles, 75, of Plano, passed away Saturday, Oct. 23, 1999. She was born July 29, 1924, in Gunder, Iowa; she was a full-blooded Norwegian and was proud of it! Her entire life, she was a true homemaker in every sense of the word as well as being involved in real estate and retail sales later on. In earlier years, she spent her time being involved in her children's/families activities. The family lived in Wiesbaden, Germany for four and one half years and she developed her love of travel there. Volunteerism has always been a part of her life and more recently by assisting the seniors with their income tax returns at the library. She was always interested in continuing her education and has been involved in creative writing classes where she made many new friends. The joys of her life were her eight grandchildren and one great grandchild; to whom she was "Gram," "Grandma," or "Memaw." She was an active member of St. Mark's Catholic Church for 30 years; recently enjoying the fellowship of the monthly potluck dinners. Her faith, her family and her friends were of utmost importance in her life. For the last year she persevered relentlessly, but it was not meant to be. She was ready to be with her Lord and Savior.
She is survived by her daughter and husband, Jackie and Rick Harris; son, Michael Allen Knowles; sons and wives, Don and Kim Weaks and Joe and Dawn Weaks; grandchildren, Sean Knowles, Megan Knowles, Josh Knowles, Vasser Knowles, Jake Knowles and Kassidy Knowles; great-granddaughter, Katelyn Weaks.
