Annabelle was born in Tyler, Texas on January 6th, 1932. She was the second of four children born to her parents J.C Knight and his lovely wife, Carrie Smith. Annabelle moved to Dallas, Texas with her family in the 1960’s. Soon after her graduation from Garfield High School in East Texas, she married the love of her life, Manzell Potts. When they first met, they realized a true match of divine design that has blossomed and flourished. They had a beautiful wedding ceremony in Las Vegas, Nevada and have been blissfully wed for sixty-two years. To their union, they were blessed with eight children. Manzell Junior has now reunited with his mother in the presence of the Lord.Annabelle served as a United States postal worker, while raising her children in the fear and the admonition of the Lord.

Annabelle loved the Lord and dedicated her life to His service. She was also very civic minded. Annabelle served her community well. She was an outstanding asset to the schools where her children attended. She served on many community-based projects; feeding the hungry, organizing clothing projects and participated in countless fund raisers. her service to God, family and the community was a perpetual and ongoing labor of love.In the midst of all of Annabelle’s endeavors, she did find time to go fishing. She loved to fish, to garner, to travel and especially, Annabelle loved to cook for her family, friends and others at the church and within her community. But, her most cherished and endearing moments were spent with her family. “Being with family is the most special time of all”, she would always say.As Annabelle toiled in this life after a long, hard day, she would so often retreat to her bible and spent quiet time with God. She always rested in John 3:16, for she trusted how much God loves her, a truth that she always kept deep within her heart and instilled within her children. Annabelle left a legacy of love, hard work, endurance, and a work ethic that is second to none.Annabelle will truly be missed as she bequeaths fond memories of family to her devoted husband, Manzell, her seven children, Tyrone, Melton, Stanley, Yolanda, Joanie, Arlin and her youngest child, Sharon. She also leaves twenty-three grandchildren, fifteen great grandchildren and one great grandchild soon to be born, her sister; Irene Barnes, and her brother Anthony Farmer, many family members and friends to cherish and celebrate, to share and commemorate her joys of life, happiness and love.

    My deepest condolence for the loss of your dear loved one. ‘Your MOM’ no doubt was a shining light in your life. In the midst of your grief please talk, write and most of all pray about your thoughts and feelings(never underestimate the power of prayer), these steps can help you to organize the mental clutter that accumulates from sadness and grief. The Bible says that if you pray about your concerns, ‘the peace of God that excels all thought will guard your heart and your mental powers.’—Philippians 4:7.
