Marjorie Mae Rose Knight passed away peacefully at Brookdale Hermitage in Tallahassee on Tuesday, June 11, 2019 at the age of 93. Marge was born in Olive Hill, Kentucky, on September 14, 1925 to James Madison Rose, MD and Violette Fultz Rose.
She attended the Louisville College of Pharmacy, where she met her future husband, Joseph Francis Knight of Henry County, Kentucky, who was attending the University of Louisville School of Dentistry. After marriage, Marge and Joseph lived in Maysville, Kentucky, where she managed the dental practice. After the death of her husband, she moved to Tallahassee, Florida, to be near family. Besides a drink of Kentucky Bourbon at 6 o'clock each evening, Marge enjoyed reading, UK basketball and golf. She formed many friendships on golf courses in the Big Bend. Marge was especially active in the Hilaman Women's Golf Association.
