Obituary for Mary Knabl

DURHAM: Mary Ann Knabl, 72, passed away on Saturday, April 20, 2019 at Duke University Hospital in Durham. She was born in Wayne County, Michigan to the late Charles J. Reynolds and the surviving Mary Ann Reynolds of Rose City, Michigan.

In addition to her mother, Mary is survived by her husband, Thom M. Knabl; daughter, Ashley Victoria Knabl-Potter (Edward Charles); son, Matthew M. Knabl; grandchildren, Carson Charles Potter, Kristen Bookmiller (Sarah), Hunter Knabl; and brother, Steven Reynolds (Karen).

Mary was a vibrant woman, devoted mother and wife, and a tremendous fisherwoman. In her younger years, she worked in her father’s hardware store in Rochester, Michigan.

She loved to be outdoors, and her beautiful flower gardens were always the envy of the neighborhood. Perhaps her happiest times were spent at the family cabin on Rifle Lake in Northern Michigan.

The memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, April 26th in The Gathering Room at Clements Funeral Home in Durham with a luncheon to follow immediately thereafter.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations in Mary’s name to the Animal Protection Society of Durham County in North Carolina.
