Elizabeth Anne Forster (Liz) Knight was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend. She passed away peacefully at home surrounded by loving family on June 28, 2022.

Liz was born on Aug. 24, 1956, in Honolulu, Hawaii, into an Army family. Her father’s military assignments brought her to Fort McClellan, Alabama, as a child where she met her lifelong best friend and future husband, Tim Knight. Liz and Tim were married soon after high school and recently celebrated their 46th wedding anniversary.

She is survived by her husband, Tim, of Auburn; three children: Emily Knight of Birmingham, Becky (Johnathan) Peavy of Orlando, Florida, and Andrew (Carrie) Knight of Lexington, KY; three grandchildren: Elliott Griffin (Emily), Primlee Knight and Nolan Knight (Andrew); two fur grandchildren: Penelope “Pig” and “Tater” Woods Peavy (Becky); two sisters: Kathy Forster and Mary (Albert) Still both of Tucker, GA; and several nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Mary Forster and Gene E Forster, previously of Jacksonville, Alabama.

Liz was a graduate of Jacksonville State University and recently retired from Auburn City Schools where she served as an assistant to the Special Education Department. She was an active member of Church of the Highlands, serving as a greeter, a legacy team member, on the hospitality team and a small group leader for many years.

Liz will always be remembered for her sweet and gentle spirit, her kindness towards everyone she met, her Christ-like service to others and her love for and devotion to her family. Liz was a dog rescuer and gave a loving home to many pups that were fortunate enough to come her way. She was a supporter of the Lee County Humane Society and Homeward Trails Animal Rescue ( www.homewardtrails.org ).

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to either of these organizations, or an adoption in honor of Liz.

There will be a Celebration of Life service at Church of the Highlands – Auburn East, 2001 E. Samford Ave., Auburn at 11 a.m. on Saturday, July 9, 2022.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7 is scripture by which she lived her life as a wife, mother, sister, and friend, and is how she will always be remembered:
Liz is patient, Liz is kind. She does not envy; she does not boast; she is not proud. She does not dishonor others, she is not self-seeking, she is not easily angered, she keeps no records of wrongs. Liz does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. She always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
