Delinda E. "Dee" Knight, 56, an Old Dominion employee for 27 years, died Nov. 10 in a local hospital.

A funeral service will be conducted at 11 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 14, at Norfolk Garden Baptist Church, 6235 Azalea Garden Road, Norfolk. Burial will follow in Colonial Grove Memorial Park, 3445 Princess Anne Road, Virginia Beach.

The family will receive friends at Hollomon-Brown Funeral Home, Bayside Chapel, from 7-9 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 13.

A native of Elizabeth City, N.C., and resident of Virginia Beach, Knight was an education support specialist in the student employment section of the Office of Finance. She previously worked in student employment processing for the offices of Career Development Services and Personnel Services.

Knight was named ODU Employee of the Year in 1991 by the Hourly and Classified Employees Association. Among the many letters sent in support of her nomination for the award, one colleague wrote, "I do not believe that I have ever seen her give less than 100 percent, no matter what the circumstances. Her goal is to get the job done and done well. I have never seen her miss her goal."

Knight was a member of Norfolk Garden Baptist Church and the Ladies Sunday School Class.

She is survived by her husband, Raymond T. Knight, and a daughter, Lynn Raye Knight, both of Virginia Beach. Other survivors include her sister, Jean Norvell of Edenton, N.C.
