Mildred Katherine Virginia Payne McKnight was born November 20, 1928 and passed away on April 3, 2017 after a brief illness. She is survived by her children Sawnie R. Aldredge and Amy Payne Aldredge, her step-children John McKnight and Adair McKnight and seven grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her first husband Sawnie R. Aldredge, Jr., and her husband of forty years, Joseph W. McKnight. A native Texan, she was born in San Antonio and graduated from The Hockaday School and Wellesley College. She was a long time member of the Dallas Shakespeare Club, the Junior League of Dallas and the Church of the Holy Cross. Although she majored in English and was an avid reader, her true love was music and she enjoyed her many years singing in the choir at Holy Cross. Together, Joe and Mimi enjoyed going to the opera, their many summers spent in Oxford, England and time spent with family. Mimi was a dear friend to many and her life was surrounded by books, music, and her beloved cats.
Services will be held on Saturday April 8, at 10:00 a.m. at the Church of the Holy Cross, 4052 Herschel, Dallas, Texas 75219. A reception will follow at the church.
