In loving memory of Lucile Knapp

Date of Birth : Sep 25 1925

Place of Birth : Roundup, Montana

Date Deceased : April 30th 2013

Place of Death : Walla Walla, Washington

Mrs. Lucile Knapp passed peacefully from this life the morning of April 30th, 2013 after a gradual decline in health. She was surrounded and supported by her loving family and caregivers during the last days of her life.

Lucile was born in Roundup, Montana, grew up in Livingston, MT, leaving home at the age of 13 to pursue her dream of a Seventh-day Adventist education-from Mt. Ellis Academy, to Walla Walla College, then to the Adventist Seminary in Washington, DC for her Master's Degree. She married R. Merle Knapp in 1949, and they settled in Walla Walla. She started teaching and having children at the same time, having 7 children over the next 8 years.

In 1961 her dream of teaching at Walla Walla College was realized. She sometimes taught English and Hebrew, eventually specializing in teaching Greek to all the students in the ministerial curriculum. She was known as a tough teacher and her students loved her.

She loved to travel, and spent her last summer of teaching at the Adventist College in Singapore. She retired to her farm in Walla Walla in 1990 and enjoyed her full country life with friends and family for 23 more years. Lucile is survived by 6 children (and spouses): Ray(Laura)Knapp, Terry Knapp, Linden(Ruth)Knapp, Carol(George)Lorentzen, Suzanne Knapp, Randy(Patty)Knapp, and daughter-in-law Rosie Knapp.

Nine grandchildren, Brandon Knapp, Dustin Knapp, Delaina Holman, Shauna Knapp, Tami Humbert, Shannon Walker, Justin Terry, Brady Knapp, Corey Knapp, and 8 great-grandchildren (with one on the way), a brother Howard Harper, a sister-in-law Hilda Harper, and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband Merle in 1969 and her son Michal in 1964. Funeral: Friday, May 10, 10:00 A.M. at Walla Walla University Church Heubach Chapel, with burial to follow at Mt. Hope Cemetery.
