Carla Beth Knight passed away on February 26, 2021. She was born on April 23, 1953 to her late parents, Robert and Reynolds Taylor. Carla was a teacher with the Cobb County School system for over 30 years and was a faithful member of Four Points Church. However, her greatest accomplishment was when she earned the title “Mimi”. She loved her family, Jesus, animals, especially cats, and cooking, she even earned the title of “cupcake lady”. The sweets weren’t just for others though, you could always find her drinking a coke and eating something sweet, especially when she was watching her favorite teams play; the University of GA Bulldogs or The Atlanta Braves. In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her aunt and uncle, Carl, and Bethel Ragland.
Carla was a loving Mimi, wife, mother, sister, aunt, and friend who will be greatly missed by many. Mrs. Knight is survived by her loving husband of 48 years, Raymond Knight, children; Janet Stover, Clark Knight, Karen Carter and her husband Ryan, brothers; CJ Taylor and his wife Sharon, Bobby Taylor and his wife Gretchen, grandchildren; Daniel Knight, Jacob Stover, Jenny Knight, Emily Knight, Megan Stover, Hannah Carter, Halle Carter, and a host of nieces, nephews, friends, and students.
