Winifred Frazee Gulick
Winifred Frazee Gulick passed away peacefully with family members present on Nov. 12, 2022.
She was born to Elwood and Mildred Frazee on April 3, 1930 in Orange, NJ and she was raised in Wyckoff, NJ.
Win was a graduate of Keuka College class of 1951. She met her future husband, W. Lawrence “Lawry” Gulick, on a blind date when he was a student at Hamilton College. Married on Oct. 18, 1952, they had just celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary before her passing.
After her children reached school age, she worked at the Dartmouth College Athletic Department and in the Development Office at Hamilton College. She was an avid crafter, known for her quilts and knitting. After retirement, she started her own business making custom American Girl doll clothes.
After living on or near four college campuses and serving as a key member of those campus communities, Win and Lawry settled at Jenner’s Pond Retirement Community in 2003. At Jenner’s Pond she served as the chairperson of the knit/crochet club, co-chair of the craft show for many years, was an active member of the quilt club, garden club, and was a Wii bowling champion. When she ran the knit/crochet club, she was responsible for ensuring that hundreds of hats were sent every year to area NICU units, to the cancer center in Kennett Square, to the Lakota Indian reservation in South Dakota and to the St. Joseph’s Indian School.
Win was known as someone who showed she cared for people by her good deeds. Whether giving jam to neighbors, helping area non-profits, or sharing her talent for sewing with others, she was always there to lend a helping hand. Because she cared for the students in the north country at St. Lawrence University, she and other members of the family and friends endowed a scholarship for north country students engaged in community service.
She was a wonderful grandmother who showed patience, creativity, and willingness to listen. She will be missed by us all.
She is survived by her husband, Lawry, three children Hans, Tod, and Kristina, five grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
Services and burial will be held privately.

Lisa Marie Knox
Lisa Marie Knox, of Kennett Square, passed away on Nov. 12, 2022. She was 66.
She was the beloved wife of Franklin R. (Bob) Knox, Jr., with whom she shared 44 years of marriage.
Born in West Chester, she was the daughter of the late Kenneth C. Jameson and Bette Batton Money.
She was 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 six 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. That’s 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. She was an 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 the 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. (Bob) Knox, Jr.; two daughters Jennifer C. Knox (Joe Clark) and Jessica L. Knox (John Garges); a brother, Kevan C. Jameson (and wife Julie) and one granddaughter, Hayley Jo Clark and a niece Christine Jameson.
A celebration of life was held on Nov. 18 at La Verona in Kennett Square.
