Longtime Floyd County official dies

Knable was commissioner for three terms, county councilman for two

GEORGETOWN — Edmund R. “Junie” Knable, who served three terms as a Floyd County Commissioner and two terms on the Floyd County Council, died Sunday. He was 78.

Besides being involved in local politics for years, Knable was retired from the former Public Service Indiana, and was also an avid farmer at his home in Georgetown.

“He was an old farmer and a no-nonsense guy,” said Letty Walter. “He was really a nice man.”

Knable is survived by his wife Ann, four children and eight grandchildren.

“Junie was a true leader as county commissioner, and he contributed to me being the commissioner I am today,” said Floyd County Commissioner Chuck Freiberger.

Knable’s visitation is from noon to 8 p.m. today, Nov. 6, with a prayer service at 3 p.m., at Newcomer Funeral Home, New Albany. His funeral Mass will be at 11 a.m. Wednesday at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in New Albany.
