Elizabeth Ann Lamb Knowles took her last breath Sunday, September 20, 2020 at her home. Ann was born in Asheboro, NC February 19, 1948 to the late Luke Henry Lamb and Janie Larea Dunning Lamb. 

Ann attended Asheboro High School and Asheboro Beauty School. Soon after school she met the love of her life Terry Lee Knowles and they married May 25, 1969. What She loved most in life was taking care of her home and family. She was the best cook and her Daddy loved her potato salad. Ann’s house always looked like a picture out of Southern Living. She loved gardening and her flowerbeds were always pristine. Her 3 sons were the light of her life!

Ann is survived by her husband Terry of the home, sons Brian (Phyllis), Mark (LuAnn), and Steven. Ann spoiled her grandchildren Katie Knowles, Adylin, and Maddison. She adored her 2 great-grandchildren Jody and Memphis Ratliff. She also loved her step grandchildren, Melissa (deceased) and Amanda along with their children and grandchildren. Ann is also survived by her 2 sisters Peggy Jernigan (John) and Teresa King (Bobby). She has a large extended family who will miss her in their lives.

Ann was a private person and did not want any fuss made over her. Her ashes will be spread at one of her favorite places, Ocracoke, NC at a later date.

A small family gathering will be held Wednesday, September 23, 2020 from 5 to 7 pm at their home.
