Obituary:
Eugenia (Gina) D. Knight, affectionately known as "Punkin" by her family, was born on July 15th, 1953 in Murfreesboro, TN. Gina was the fourth child born to the late James L. and Dolores Butler. She departed this life and entered into eternity on September 19, 2020 at Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital.

Gina grew up on Woodbury Road in Murfreesboro and attended Central High School, where she was a member of Central's graduating class of 1972. On December 1, 1973, she married Ernest Knight and out of this union, two daughters were born, Ericka Nichole and Kellie Dup'ra. Gina has always loved people and worked many years in the hospitality industry. However, in 2002, she started working for Rutherford County Schools (RCS) and was still employed with RCS at Whitworth-Buchanan Middle School until her passing. Gina's free time was spent working for her church, gardening, reading, or working puzzles.

Sister Eugenia joined the Rockvale Original Church of God in 1998 and was baptized by Pastor Tyson and Deacon Howard Patton of Franklin, TN. At Rockvale Original COG, she served as an usher, choir member and was appointed as Pastor Tyson's Armorbearer in 2001. In March 2016, she was promoted to the position of Administrator for Pastor Tyson when he was consecrated as Bishop of the Rockvale Independent Church. She also served in the Rutherford Mass Praise Choir and was a faithful worker on the Holy Smoker Food Truck for the past nine years.
