In memory of
Beth Knapp
Beth Cooke Knapp WASHINGTON, NJ Ms. Beth Cooke Knapp, 64, of Washington, NJ, passed away suddenly on May 16, 2019, after a brief illness, at Hackettstown Medical Center, Hackettstown, NJ. Born at Newton Memorial Hospital on Sept. 22,1954, she was the youngest daughter of the late James A. and Anne Cooke Knapp. Beth graduated from Warren Hills H.S. in Washington, NJ, in 1972. She attended American University and graduated from the Washington Secretarial School and worked for the American Red Cross Headquarters and at the Air and Space Museum for several years in Washington, DC. She travelled extensively and amassed a tremendous amount of knowledge that enriched her life, family and friends. Beth was her family's private tour guide. She was an avid reader, learned Scottish dancing, loved attending live theater productions and visiting museums around the world, but her greatest enrichment was the study of Egyptology's ancient world. She travelled to Egypt many years ago and witnessed the magnificent pyramids, museums, statuary, mummies, etc. In 1986 she relocated to San Francisco to accept a work study program at Berkley University to study Egyptology and became a member of the Egyptology Society, and where she resided and worked for 30 years. Beth was very loving, kind, and generous; she had a heart of gold and lit up a room with her bright smile and laughter and bubbly personality. There's no friend like a sister, and no better sister than you! She was a member of Stewart Chapter 166, Order of the Eastern Star of New Jersey. She is survived by her sisters, Carol B. Hart, Dianne L. Thorn (Harold), Sally L. Spencer (David), and nieces and nephews, Darrell (Michelle) and Christopher (Ann-Jennifer) Hart, James andNeil (Michela) Thorn, Holly Zinn (Robert), Tracy Domzolski (Donnie), Kimberly Stewart (Matthew); great-nieces and nephews, Brandon and Ryan Hart, Owen and Sophie Hart, Juliet and Zoe Tuggle, Paige and Samantha Domzolski, Lia and Sofia Thorn, Ryan, Kyle, and Nicole Zinno. The family will receive their family and friends for memorial visitation on Tuesday, May 21, 2019 from 2 to 4 p.m. at Cochran Funeral Home, 905 High Street, Hackettstown, NJ.
