Equal Rights For Others Does Not Mean Fewer Rights For You It’s Not Pie Shirt, hoodie
And he loved sports, cheering for his beloved Chicago teams as well as the Indianapolis Colts and Indiana Pacers.
Knoll adored his 2-year-old granddaughter, Charlotte, and shared with her his love of Disney’s “Dumbo” — a movie she’s asked to watch several times since he fell ill.
Around mid-March, he developed a cough he initially attributed to allergies. But it persisted, and a pneumonia diagnosis soon followed.
He was hospitalized on breathing support for about two weeks, Jon said. When it was evident he was going to pass, his care team at Franciscan Health arranged a Zoom call for the family and their pastors. They said the Lord’s Prayer and a final blessing.
After saying goodbye, Knoll’s wife, son and family recited his favorite hymn, “I Know that My Redeemer Lives.”
He lives to silence all my fears; He lives to wipe away my tears; He lives to calm my troubled heart; He lives all blessings to impart.
By the time they finished singing, he was gone.
“He always told people whenever somebody died, they’ve got the victory in Jesus,” Jon said, “and that’s what we’ll remember.”

Name: Patricia “Patty” Connor
Died: April 12
Patty Connor always had a positive outlook on life and was the type of person who was up for any activity.
While all the other moms at The Riviera Club avoided getting their hair wet, Connor never gave it a second thought, her children said. She was right there with her kids, doing flips in the pool and going down the slide.
She would play tennis and ride bikes with her children. At weddings, she danced the whole time.
When she was 83, her family had a kickball tournament for one of Connor’s daughter’s birthdays. Connor just had to go up to the plate and kick the ball, too.
“She was never too old to try something,” said Janet Kahler, one of her daughters.
Connor, a Catholic who graduated from St. Mary Catholic High School and St. Vincent Hospital School of Nursing, died at age 86 on Easter Sunday at American Village, days after testing positive for the coronavirus.
Connor’s life was book-ended by two holidays, a fitting nod to a woman who loved a celebration, according to two of her daughters. Born In Indianapolis on Dec. 31, 1933, Connor was named IndyStar’s Baby New Year.
In 1956, Connor married Lawrence “Bo” Connor after being set up on a blind date. Bo Connor was a longtime managing editor at IndyStar, and together the two of them seemed to know just about everyone.
