AUSTINTOWN – Evelyn M. Knight, 75, passed away early Tuesday morning, Oct. 30, 2012, at her home following a lengthy illness.

Evelyn was born Sept. 20, 1937, in Millersburg, a daughter of the late Clyde and Emma Hoover Croskey. She was raised in Orrville, where she graduated from high school in 1955, and moved to Cleveland shortly thereafter and came to Austintown in 2004.

Mrs. Knight was a homemaker who dedicated her adult life to raising and caring for her family.

Evelyn leaves eight children, Eve (Rich) Starman of Chesterland, Roberta (Byron) Clark of Harker Heights, Texas, Clifford Croskey of Orrville, Robert G. Jr. (Linda) Knight of Cleveland, Caleb Knight III of Brunswick, Teresa Knight of Colorado Springs, Adam Knight of Cleveland, and Eric (Rebecca) Knight, with whom she made her home; 10 grandchildren, Melissa, Tina, Byron, Michael, Clifford Jr., Jessica, Megan, Jacob, Joshua, and Alizabeth; two sisters, Gloria Martin and Elizabeth Tanko; and two brothers, Larry, and Frank Croskey.

Evelyn will always be remembered by her family and friends as a wonderful and loving person who will be truly missed.

Besides her husband, Robert G. Knight Sr., she was preceded in death by a grandson, Kevin; a sister, Shirley Eckman; and by two brothers, Richard and Robert Croskey.

Interment will take place at West Park Cemetery in Cleveland at a later date.
