Elaine Knight
Gales Ferry- Elaine Aiken Knight, 69, of Gales Ferry, died June 26, 2017, at the William Backus Hospital in Norwich.
She was born in Cortland, NY December 17, 1947, the daughter of William and Bette Voorhees. She was the wife of Gary Knight who survives her.
In addition to her husband Gary, she is survived by two sons, Gregory R. Aiken (Crystal) of Bristol, NY, Scott J. Aiken (Kim) of Manchester, CT; a sister Donna L. Barker (Ken) of Malta, NY; grandchildren Travis, Mackenzie, Angelica, Dallas and Olivia. She is survived by her brother-in-law Bruce Allen of Marathon, NY, as well as several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by a sister Sharon A. Allen.
Elaine brought joy and peace to many lives with her courage, kindness, grace, and love. More than a wife, mother, grandmother, and sister to her own family, she "adopted" many other kindred spirits during her lifetime. Elaine gave freely of the warmth and comfort in her heart and soul to all the people she cared about. Her boundless love and wisdom healed many wounds, and her humble generosity brought her an equal measure of happiness that she gave to others unconditionally.
