Aretta Knoll Obituary

Aretta C. Knoll, 86, of Navarre, with her family gathered to her side, passed peacefully on to glory, early Thursday morning, January 4, 2024.  Born March 15, 1937, in Clarksburg, West Virginia, a daughter to the late Art and Mary (Helmick) Edwards, Aretta lived most of her adult life in the Navarre area.  She had been a homemaker, creating a safe and welcoming home for her husband and family; a place full of warmth, laughter, and happy memories.  She was a Christian woman who placed her family and her faith at the center of her life.  A faithful and active member of Bethel Baptist Church in Canton, Aretta made her faith community part of her extended family.  She loved singing in the church choir and found joy in doing for others.  Her kind and loving example are her legacy as “her works go before her,” and she will be missed by many.

Predeceased by her parents; her husband, Foster E. Knoll, Sr.; brother, Claude Edwards and sisters, Isabell Edwards McKinzie and Lucille Edwards Boone; Aretta is survived by her children, Valerie (Rodney) Miller, of East Sparta, Ohio and Foster E. (Shirley) Knoll, Jr., of Canton.  Also surviving are her grandchildren,

Angel (Eric) Parson, Amber (Roy) Newsome, Eugene (Michelle) Kopp, and Justin (Michelle) Knoll; eleven great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren.
