Krystine "Krys" Knight
Our beautiful, loving sister, Krys passed away on Tuesday, June 12, 2012. Krys was born in Delta, Utah on January 11, 1952 to Newel and Venice Knight. She lived most of her younger years in Deseret. In 1965, our family moved to Delta. Krys attended schools in Delta and graduated from Delta High School in 1970. Thank you Mrs. "J" for ensuring that Krys and her friends graduated.
She attended and graduated from Weber State University and received her Master's Degree in Psychology at BYU. For the last twenty-three years, Krys has been a School Counselor for the Ogden School District.
Krys loved the students and has made a positive impact on their lives. No matter where she went, current and former students would come running to her for a hug. She worked closely with the Ogden City Police Department and Gang Unit and was highly respected for her work trying to break the cycle of students becoming gang members.
Krys loved sports. Sunday's was her football day. Krys enjoyed hiking, biking, skiing, softball, and tennis. Currently, she was playing tennis on an Ogden City League. She was an avid reader and was always reading two or three books at the same time. Krys loved coming to Delta to see her friends and having lunch at the Rancher. She said it was the only place where she could get a great Cheeseburger and Fries. Family was the most important part of Krys's life. She loved her family more than anything and always looked forward to our family's crazy adventures.
Krys requested to be cremated and have her ashes scattered in her favorite place in Millard County. Our family loved Krys so much and we and the naughty dogs will miss her.
We know that she is in a happy place. We are also sure that Krys, Michelle and dad are in "time out' and mom is shaking her finger. Our family appreciates the love and compassion that was been given to us during the difficult time. A very special "Thank You" to the South Ogden Police Department, 911 Dispatcher, CSI, and Corner's Office. They all performed their duties with such dignity and respect and went beyond their duty to provide comfort and support.
Cremation under the direction of Leavitt's Mortuary.
