Her Legacy… Nancy Lynn Knox, 66, passed away April 26, 2022. She was born on January 23, 1956, in Detroit, Michigan to James Semande and Mary (Louis) Semande. Nancy married the love of her life, Edward Knox, on June 5, 1976, in Livonia, Michigan. Nancy was a born caregiver who was selfless in taking care of her family and strangers alike. She made friends wherever she went, and had a way of making everyone she met a better person. In her free time, she had a passion for traveling, and also loved reading, visiting casinos, and shopping, whether in person or online. She especially loved spending time jet skiing and sunbathing on her lake, where she grew up spending summers, and later, where she and her husband designed their house. Most of all, Nancy loved her family, especially spending time with her grandchildren. She will be missed by all who knew her.

Her Family… Nancy will be missed by her husband, Edward; her children, Carrie (Kiryl) Sinitski and Kevin (Sara) Knox; sister, Sharon Dennis; grandchildren, Alena, Isabelle, Alexa, and Nolan. She is preceded in death by her brother, James Semande.
