Carrie May Knight, 102, died Nov. 6, 2010, at Windward Gardens after only a month of declining health. She had been a resident of Camden for 82 years and had spent several weeks at Windward Gardens.

Born in South Brooks June 9, 1908, she was a daughter of Bertie and Rose Emma (Jones) Small. A 1927 graduate of Belfast High School, Carrie received her teaching degree from Farmington State Normal College. In 1928, she married Arthur Knight in Lincolnville. Once her children were high school age, she went to work at Phillipine Art Crafts in Camden making baby clothes. Mrs. Knight also worked at the Sandwich Shop for several years, which was then located where Marriner’s Restaurant is today. She was also employed as an assembler at Tibbetts Industries, where she worked for 18 years, retiring at the age of 72.

Her hobbies included bowling at the Camden YMCA and Lucky Strike Lanes. An expert at hooking wool rugs, Mrs. Knight won first place at Union Fair twice. She spent many happy days with “The Hookers,” a group of women who gathered at Laverne Dickson’s home in Waldoboro to hook rugs.

Mrs. Knight was an avid gardener and enjoyed working in her flower and vegetable gardens, doing it all by hand. She enjoyed attending antique shows, flea markets, lawn sales, collecting sugar shells and anything that took her fancy.

Mrs. Knight looked forward to attending the Belfast/Crosby High School Alumni banquets annually and was honored this year by Josephine Grady as the oldest living alumna. In 2009 she was the recipient of the Boston Post Cane for the town of Camden.

She is survived by two children, Dorothy K. Lewis of Camden and Charles Knight of Dover-Foxcroft; six grandchildren, Denise Thibault of Standish, Barry Lewis of Lavernia, Texas, Barbara Bowden of Elgin, Okla., Martha Lewis of Westfield, Mass., Suzanne Bowden of Camden and Mark Lewis of West Springfield, Mass.; several great-grandchildren; a grand-nephew, Richard Currier, and his wife, Johanna, of Barre, Vt.; and several cousins.

She was predeceased by her husband, Arthur Knight, who died in 1962; a grandson, Eric Lewis; a son-in-law, Emery Lewis; and a daughter-in-law, Shirley Knight.

A graveside service will be held Wednesday, Nov. 10 at 11 a.m. at the Greenlawn Cemetery in Wiscasset.
