'Together Again'Violet Mae Honaker
age 72, went home to be with the Lord on Feb. 28, 2014. She was born on June 5, 1941 to the late Cecil and Ruby (Phillips) Angell in Hinton, W.Va. She married Ronald E. Honaker on Feb. 2, 1959 and they shared 46 years together until his passing in 2005. Violet was a longtime member of Massillon Baptist Temple serving as a Sunday School teacher. She enjoyed bowling, golfing and spending quality time with her family. A beautiful lady whose kind heart touched so many lives; an artist who left her mark in so many ways. She was a strong woman, yet quick to comfort those in need. Her sweet smile and compassionate spirit will be missed beyond words. She was always very active, but enjoyed relaxing with a nice cool breeze. Above all else she was a faithful devoted follower of the Lord and has gone home to be with Him and her husband.
Violet is survived by her children, Ronald (Gay) Honaker, Saundra (Ken) Reed, and Dale (Stephanie) Honaker; her grandchildren, Brittany, Samantha, Ashton, Morgan and Alyssa; four great-grandchildren; her sisters, Fran Angell, Judy Mann and Glenna Shull; her brother, Bobby Angell; a host of nieces, nephews and friends; and her beloved dogs, Tootsie and Pebbles. In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by her brother, Ronnie Phillips.
