Carolyn Knox, a retired teacher and former supervisor for Baltimore public schools' office of English, died of cancer Dec. 10 at Northwest Hospital Center in Randallstown. The Bel Air resident was 64.

Born Carolyn Weil in 1932, she was the only child of Herman Moritz Weil and Ruth Lewin Weil.

A native of Baltimore, Mrs. Knox graduated from Forest Park High School in 1950. She earned a bachelor's degree in education from what is now Towson State University and a master's degree in education administration and supervision from Loyola College.

Mrs. Knox's 27-year career as an educator began in 1963, when she accepted a position as an English teacher at Gen. Henry Lee Junior High School in downtown Baltimore.

She became head of the English department at Woodbourne Junior High School in the late 1960s and was promoted to supervisor of the office of English in 1974, overseeing all the city school system's English departments.

Mrs. Knox frequently designed curricula for English classes at city schools. She also wrote textbooks, workbooks and learning packets for Media Materials Inc.

A memorial service was held Dec. 15 at the Bel Air home of her daughter, Jane K. Jonczak, and son-in-law.

Other survivors include her husband of 42 years, Donald L. Knox, retired principal of Benjamin Franklin Middle School; a son, Robert M. Knox of Winter Spring, Fla.; and four grandchildren.
