Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Connie Michelle Ezell Knuckles was born August 23, 1970 in Columbus, Georgia to David Ezell and the late Dorothy Ezell. From a young age, Connie loved life and lived it to the fullest. She was known to be a “do first, ask later” type of girl. She was a member of the band and was also a cheerleader in school. She got her first job as a teenager as a waitress at the Crab Trap before becoming a transcriptionist with Columbus Clinic. She spent most of her working years in the Atlanta area working as a legal secretary for various firms.
In her spare time, Connie enjoyed watching and cheering on her favorite NFL team, the Atlanta Falcons. She would always sport her Tony Gonzalez jersey whether the Falcons were playing at home or on the road. She was known to enjoy her evening night cap to ease the stress of the day. While she was successful in her career, her greatest passion and work was being a devoted and loving mother to her daughter. She supported her daughter in all endeavors and served as a “Guard Mom,” while her daughter was a member of the Color Guard Team.
Connie Michelle Knuckles, 48, of Columbus, Georgia and formerly Atlanta, Georgia, passed away on Thursday, July 18, 2019 at Columbus Hospice surrounded by her loving family. She is preceded in death by her mother; paternal grandparents; maternal grandfather, and beloved niece, Kimberly.
