Wynona McKnight was born on July 11, 1914 in Streetman, TX to Wallace L. and Beatrice (Rowland) McKnight. Her mother became sick when she was nine years old and she helped raise her brothers and sisters from that time forward. She became an excellent cook while standing on a box to make biscuits.

In the year of 1933, she married the love of her life, Albert Bowen Jennings (Bert). Richard Holleman performed the ceremony in Wealthy, Texas on April 26. Grandpa went home to be with the Lord on June 22, 1984. Grandma raised four daughters, Flo Bennett, Betty Morris, Glen Rose Caldwell and Jeanne Crane. She had 14 Grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great great-grandchildren.

At the Age of 50, she started taking piano lessons. She loved to play the piano and to sing hymns and the old time songs. One of her greatest achievements was when she received her GED at the age of 74. She loved school and made good grades as a child. It was her dream to get her high school education. She proved you are never too old to fulfill a lifelong dream.

Walking was always a part of Grandmas life. She was seen walking with her cane and bonnet. Now she is walking all over heaven. Wynona’s favorite things are babies, children, cats, playing the piano, and going to church. She had a serving spirit to her family and the Lord as best she could. She was very much loved.
