Mary Lynette Knowles



Mary Lynette Knowles, 56, of Carolina Shores, NC and formerly of Wallace left this earthly life for her eternal rest on Sunday, November 18, 2018.

She was born on June 7, 1962 in New Hanover County and was the daughter of Lewellyn Jones Knowles of Wallace and the late J.C. Knowles. She was also predeceased by her precious canine companion, "Brady" who she loved and missed.

Lynette is survived by her devoted and loving daughter, Jordan W. Hudak and husband, Matthew of Ocean Isle Beach; her sister, Brenda McArthur and husband, Charles of Chadborn; cousin, Dedra Powell and husband, Bill of Wilmington; nieces, Allison Moore and husband, Nathan and Charley Messenger and husband, Brad; sister-by-heart, Lynn Futrell of Wallace and numerous extended family and friends that loved Lynette dearly.

Lynette was a self-motivated independent spirit. She was not afraid to take on a challenge and often not only completed it but mastered it as if she had been doing it a lifetime. She had an infectious laugh and she was that friend that you could always depend on. Lynette owned several businesses throughout her life including Beaches in Little River, SC. She loved the beach and spent countless days breathing in the salt air; it was her happy place! She was wonderfully artistic and had a great eye for interior design. When not working you could find her refinishing furniture and playing golf! She also loved to tap dance! Her greatest accomplishment and pride in this life was being a mother to Jordan.

Memorial service will be held 11:00 am on Saturday, December 1, 2018 at Willard Baptist Church with Pastor David Knowles and Pastor John Bracey officiating.

In lieu of flowers, the family request that memorial gifts be given to Willard Baptist Church, c/o Rev. David Knowles, 244 Church Street, Willard, NC 28478 or to Lower Cape Fear Hospice Foundation, 1414 Physicians Drive, Wilmington, NC 28401.
