Courtney Elizabeth Knight November 09, 1969 October 23, 2018 Courtney Elizabeth Knight, 48, died peacefully October 23, 2018 at her home surrounded by her family.  Courtney was born on November 9, 1969 in St. Petersburg, Florida to Joanne Bolton Knight and Alfred Sidney Knight.  The Knight family moved to Nashville in 1970. Courtney graduated from Hillsboro High School in 1988, and graduated cum laude from Belmont University in 1993. She received her JD from Washington University School of Law, St. Louis with honors in 1997.  As an attorney she worked for the State of Tennessee. In 1999, she married David Caperton, with whom she spent nineteen fulfilled years. Courtney was warm, friendly, hilarious, and irreverent. She was dedicated to her work, family, and friends. Her sensitivity and sense of fair play was woven throughout all of what she did in her work and in her relationships. She was an avid reader (from Austen to Rowling) and had an eclectic music collection (from Duran Duran to The Clash). Courtney was a knowledgeable citizen engaged in her political passions.  Hiking and camping in Tennessee State Parks with her husband, friends, and dog kept her centered and focused on what she considered to be the important things in life. She is survived by her husband, David Caperton; mother, Joanne Knight; father, Sid Knight; step father, Gene Armstrong; sister, Shannon Cook; brother, Kyle Knight; aunt, Kathy Sue Brasington; uncle, G. Robert Bolton; nieces and nephews, Abby Cook, Brendan Cook, Tommy Knight, and Christopher Knight and cousins, Elaine Barber, Heather Albright, Brian Bolton, Kathleen Gilbert and Corbett Brasington.
