Sunset: October 1, 2021

On Friday, October 1, 2021 our beloved Martha Ann Knockett received her wings and went home to be with our heavenly father. “Ann” as she was affectionately called was born on May 13, 1950 to the late Alphonso Kelly Sr. and Martha Jones. Ann was a lifelong resident of Norfolk, Virginia. She was educated in the Norfolk Public School System. After many years of service, she retired as a housekeeper. Ann was a loving, kind-hearted, and family oriented person. She loved cooking and you could find her preparing huge meals during the holidays for family and friends. Left to cherish Ann’s memory is her loving and devoted husband of 38 years, Allen Knockett; they were inseparable; sons; Alvin Jones, Jr. (Tarsha), Timothy Jones, Shumont Jones and Arthur Watson (Arnita); grandchildren; Alvin Jones III, Ty’reek Jones, Sasha Minor and Terence Minor; siblings; Dora Lee Williams, Alphonso Kelly, Jr. (Cathy), Mary Reid and Gwendolyn Sanders. She is now reunited with those who preceded her in death, her parents and siblings, Carolyn Hammond and Charles Scott.
