Lisa Marie Knox

February 15, 1956 - November 12, 2022 Kennett Square, PA | Age 66 Loving Mother, Grandmother, Sister and Friend

Lisa Marie Knox, age 66, of KennettSquare,PA, passed away on Saturday, November 12, 2022. She was the beloved wife of Franklin R. Knox, Jr (Bob) with whom she shared 44 years of marriage.

Born in West Chester, PA, she was the daughter of the late Kenneth C. Jameson and Bette Batton Money.

A 1974 graduate of West Chester High School. Lisa spent most of her high school years as a competitive swimmer. She was a member of the Suburban Swim Club in Newtown Square and during the summer months she was a member of the Schlegel Swim Club. In 1971 Lisa was chosen to be an exchange swimmer and competed in Germany for 6 weeks.

Next to swimming Lisa’s heart was with the horses and the equestrian world. Her love for horses started at a young age. Shortly after high school Lisa attended the Fulmer School of Equitation in Yorks, England. Where she attained her certification as a British Horse Society Assistant Instructor.

Lisa dedicated 48 years of her life to Chester County 4-H as the leader of Trailmasters Horse and Pony Club. She was also a member and huge supporter of the United States Pony Club locally and nationally for over 40 years particularly with Rose Tree Pony Club. She was also the head coach for West Chester University’s equestrian team as well as Harcum Jr College’s equestrian team for several years. Lisa was also a long standing member of the Delaware Valley Combined Training Association as their Junior young riders team chairman. As well as the organizer of the pub at Dressage at Devon. Lisa was also a proud member of the local 4 in Hand Driving Club where she was a well respected whip.

All while she dedicated her time to her students. Lisa also allowed time for herself. She was competitive in several different disciplines such as side saddle, eventing, dressage and driving. Lisa shortly became what was said by many as the “pied piper of children.” She made it possible for so many families to be a part of the equestrian world.

Lisa is survived by her husband Franklin R. Knox, Jr (Bob), two daughters Jennifer C. Knox (Joe Clark), Jessica L. Knox (John Garges), a brother, Kevan C. Jameson and wife Julie and one granddaughter Hayley Jo Clark and a niece Christine Jameson.

  1. I had a black horse named Balín. I was leaving another barn and Lisa came and trailered him to her farm. There we stayed. Lisa was terrific. I remember her laugh, smile, and kindness. The girls were younger, and I remember her mom. Lisa was so knowledgeable about everything equine. My heart goes out to Bob and family. Lisa will be surely missed. Kathy (Dashkavich) Kozak

  2. I am very happy to have gotten to know Lisa through carriaging with Mickie Bowen and her son, John. Lisa was a great instructor with a generous heart. I am grateful for the time I spent at the farm, the barn and the ring. I would stop by whenever I was going by, because she could usually be found in the barn and was always willing to talk. She was so knowledgeable and supportive concerning all things equine. I will miss her very much. Please accept my deepest sympathies on your loss.

  3. My heart aches with you, Jess and Bob. Your mom was one of the finest humans I’ve ever known. Her generosity, her energy, her humor, her integrity and always her caring for everyone, 2- and 4-legged were immense and unconditional. It was an honor to have known her. I would never have left my beloved Moo (Mogul II) with anyone but her to live out his life, teaching children to ride. She was an amazing woman.

  4. Sending condolences to all whose lives Lisa touched. I got to know her through 4-H and Girl Scouts. I will forever have memories of her with her young students schooling at plantation and fair hill on the XC schooling days. She certainly was always encouraging the young riders and instilling in them good horsemanship and love and respect for their mounts. She was dear to so many and will be dearly missed.

  5. Knowing Lisa through Dressage at Devon was a privilege as well as a chance to admire her work ethic and her devotion to young riders. I will miss our time together at DAD. My deepest condolences to your family.

  6. I will remember Lisa for her smile and encouraging way of giving confidence to many new riders. Lisa’s memory will stay alive each time one of her students recalls a time she taught them something, made them laugh, or they leave grass on the bit after a ride. Lisa was loved by many.
    Big Hug to her family.

  7. Lisa was our family’s neighbor growing up on Harmony Hill. We were always involved in scouts, the swim club, hiking to the covered bridge, etc. She loved her horse Apprentice and signed all cards Love, Lisa & Apprentice. She was very pregnant in 7/79 at my wedding. Love to Kevan and all her family. I miss Aunt Bette and will miss Lisa.

  11. Lisa was a very special person. She gave so much of her time to others. She was an amazing horsewoman and she gave so much time to others. As we now live in Florida, I hadn’t seen her in the past six years and that breaks my heart. In addition to all of her activities, she managed to raise two wonderfully talented daughters. Lisa was special and my husband will forever be grateful of all the time she gave to us and so many others. Rest In Peace Lisa. You were dearly loved.
