Honoring Anne Knestrick

Martha “Anne” Holladay Knestrick, “Mamaw,” age 82 of Brentwood went peacefully to her heavenly home on March 23, 2020.

Anne was preceded in death by her parents, Rufus Thornton Holladay and Kathleen Lee Holladay. She is survived by her brother, Dr. James (Jeanette) Holladay of Florence, AL; her children, Kathy (Hal) Guest of Madison, AL; Bill Knestrick of Nashville; Judy (Bobby) Stogner of Knoxville; Jim (Julie) Knestrick of Nashville; Bob (Adrienne) Knestrick of Nashville; and their father, Walter Knestrick. She was so proud of her many grandchildren: Kaitlin Grubbs, Walt Guest, Holly Herring, Abby Litchford, Sarah Guest, Katherine Kelly, Andrew Knestrick, Will Stogner, Anna Stogner, Katie Stogner, Gracie Knestrick, Jack Knestrick, Cooper Knestrick, Cole Knestrick; and great-grandchildren Henry, Iris, Mary Rich, Grady, Mason, Nora, Mary Frances and Emmy.

A Nashville native, Anne graduated from Hillsboro High School in 1956. She attended Auburn University and convinced all five of her children to follow in her footsteps.

Anne’s favorite day of the week was Monday, when she played bridge with her lifelong friends.  She was an active member of Community Bible Church. She loved living at the Heritage where she was immersed in her community.

Anne will be remembered for her great love of Jesus, family, and friends and for her incredible gifts which she so generously shared. To be in her home was to be spoiled: by the beauty she created, the gourmet food she prepared, and her thoughtful attention to every detail.

A private family burial will take place this Friday, and a celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions in memory of Anne may be made to Community Bible Church, 6005 Edmondson Pike, Nashville, TN 37211 or Willowbrook Hospice, 235 Noah Drive, #300, Franklin, TN 37064.
