Frances Honeycutt

November 23, 1920 — December 4, 2017

Frances LaRue Kennedy Honeycutt peacefully passed away Monday, December 4, 2017, with her family at her side. She was a loving daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, and a precious friend to many. She lived a long, full life full of love and service to her family and her community, and will be greatly missed by all. Frances was born in Abbott, Texas, on November 23, 1920, to Ira Faber Kennedy and Frances Henrietta Stamphill Kennedy. She was the youngest of eight children, all of whom have preceded her in death, along with both parents. She and Frank Phillip "Bob" Honeycutt married on August 9, 1941, and had 37 happy years together, and had three sons, James Michael Honeycutt, Patrick Neil Honeycutt, and Robert Steven Honeycutt.

Frances graduated from North Texas University in 1941, with a BS in education,
and went on to teach for 37 years, mostly in Monahans, Texas. She retired from teaching in 1982. During her teaching career, she served as President for Theta Tau, Delta Kappa Gamma Society, Monahans TSTA, and the Monahans Retired Teachers Association, and was involved in numerous charitable organizations, including Meals On Wheels, the hospital Pink Ladies, and many others.
She loved playing bridge and cooking - especially baking. She made amazing cookies, cakes and pies, including her epic cherry pie, which was the favorite of her family. Many fights were fought over that last piece of her cherry pie, and we are thankful that we have the recipe in her handwriting, although none of us will ever be able to duplicate the recipe, because of the love she included in the ingredients.

Affectionately known as Nanny, Frances leaves behind her sons Mike Honeycutt and wife, Sheryl, and Steve Honeycutt and wife, Judy. She also leaves 10 grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren, many nieces and nephews, and countless friends, all of whom adored her.

She is also preceded in death by her loving husband, Bob, her son, Pat Honeycutt, and her grandson, Lee Honeycutt.

The family would like to thank Dr. Anjali Nemawarker and Dr. Joseph Imsais, Hospice Austin, and her loving caregivers with Home Assistance of Austin. Memorials may be made in her memory to your favorite charity.
