"Lady Bug", as she was fondly called by everyone, transitioned peacefully on Thursday, July 16, 2015, 9 days shy of her 35th birthday. 

She was born on Friday, July 25, 1980, in Montgomery County, NC, to Elder Carmel Lorraine McBride Peeples and the late Robert Lee Knight.

Toneca joined Green Lake Congregational Church at an early age and remained faithful until relocating.  She then began attending Rose of Sharon Holiness Church, Troy, NC., where she remained faithful in attending Sunday School, Bible Study, and prayer services.  She also attended Troy Chapel AME Zion Church, when her health permitted. 

Toneca enjoyed life to the fullest and she was a people person.  She was employed as a CNA1 at Firsthealth Montgomery in Troy, NC, until her health began to fail.  She never met any strangers, and she often said that,  " everybody is somebody" and she never disrespected anyone.

I just want the family to know that one day soon we will experience the promise that is found in this scripture here. Soon an everlasting like with no more sickness, pain, sorrow or death. You all are still in my prayers and I hope this scripture brings you all comfort.
