Teresa E. McKnight

Jan. 9, 1923 - Oct. 26, 2013

Teresa E. McKnight, 90, Peru, passed away at 7:40 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26, 2013, at Miller’s Merry Manor Nursing Home, Peru. She was born in Cook on Jan. 9, 1923, the daughter of Raymond J. and Susan Schmidt Scherer. Teresa married William E. McKnight at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Crown Point on June 2, 1945, and he preceded her in death on Oct. 26, 1997.

Teresa was a 1941 graduate of Crown Point High School and worked at the Calumet Abstract Office in Crown Point prior to her marriage in 1945. She was a member of the St. Charles Catholic Church, Daughters of Isabella and the Altar & Rosary Society.

Teresa’s greatest joys in life were her husband and family and her Roman Catholic faith — she was regular at daily Mass. Family was extremely important to Teresa and she was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She loved her family unconditionally and always made everyone she came in contact with feel extra special.

She is survived by a son, James McKnight and his wife Judy, Peru; a daughter, Sue Ann Hogan, Pacolet, S.C.; grandchildren, Ann Martin and her husband Brian, Jimmy DuBois, Kim Floyd and her husband John, Chipper Wilkerson and his wife Kristin; great-grandchildren, Abby Martin, Shelby Walker, Breanna Floyd, Zadie Ann Wilkerson and Amelia Wilkerson; and a great-great-grandson, Bentley Walker.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Bill; a son-in-law, Robert Hogan; and a brother, Edward Scherer.

A Mass of Christian burial celebrating the life of Teresa E. McKnight will be at 10:30 a.m. Thursday at St. Charles Catholic Church, 58 W. Fifth St., Peru, with the Rev. Eric Underwood officiating. Burial will be in Mount Hope Cemetery. Family and friends will gather from 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at Eikenberry-Eddy Funeral Home, 84 W. Main St., Peru. There will be a prayer service at 8 p.m. Wednesday at the funeral home.

Memorial donations may be made through the funeral home to St. Charles Catholic Church. Condolences may be made to the family online at www.eddyfuneralhomes.com.
