Louise H. Knox


Louise Hunter Knox, age 72, of Rocky Point, NC, passed away peacefully on August 24, 2010, at the Lower Cape Fear Hospice and LifeCareCenter following a brief illness.

She was born in Philadelphia, PA, daughter of the late John Harvie and Elizabeth Graham Hunter.

Surviving are her husband, Buzzy of Rocky Point, NC; a son, Campbell and wife, Audrey Poe, two grandchildren, Eibhleann and Riordan, of Princeton, NJ, and her sister and brother-in-law, Jean and Joe Bower of Fort Washington, PA.

Louise loved nature and animals, especially her dog, Rowdy. The highest compliment she could bestow on anybody was that they were a “good egg; Louise was a good egg.

In accordance with her wishes, there will be a private memorial service at a later date.

Buzzy wishes to thank friends for their thoughts and prayers and express gratitude to the wonderful staff at the Lower Cape Fear Hospice and LifeCareCenter.

    Weesie,s passing is a shock to her Y friends here. She had not kept in contact so we had no idea she was ill. We have spoken of her often and wondered. She was such a good egg. We have missed her since she left our area. I will always remember her expression for being busy was "I've got fish to fry". She generously hosted five of us at your home on the river. We all speak of the fun of that time. There was no idea it would be the last time we would see her. Our prayers to out to y'all at this sad time. Bev Hollister
