Obituary for Peggy A. Knight

July 31, 1955 - February 14, 2018
McHenry, Illinois | Age 62

Loving Wife and Mother


Peggy A. Knight, age 62, died on Wednesday, February 14, 2018. She was born in Chicago on July 31, 1955, the daughter of Herbert and Shirley (Thompson) Schodtler.
Peggy was a proud mother and college graduate of Western Illinois University, class of '78. She was a loving, caring, welcoming, and compassionate person who would go out of her way to help anyone. She loved to dance, especially to the oldies. If you needed a deal on anything, she was the one to go to. Peggy was stubborn and fought for what she believed in. Above all, Peggy was strong as hell, surviving a double organ transplant over 16 years ago. She was extremely thoughtful and sent constant care packages to her children and thousands of birthday and holiday cards to those she loved. She will be truly missed by all who knew her.
Peggy is survived by her husband Michael ; loving children, Ethan and Becca; Mother in-Law, Phyllis Knight; and Granddog, Queequeg.
She is preceded in death by her father, Herbert Schodtler and father-in- law, Michael Knight Sr.
