Obituary for Dorothy Black Honea


Dorothy Black Honea, 92 years old and longtime resident of the Oakway community near Westminster SC, passed away Thursday, March 29, 2018 in Clemson, SC. She was predeceased by her husband of 61 years, Glenn Honea, parents Euless and Eunice Black and oldest grandson, Barry Thomas Jones.

Dorothy held degrees from Anderson University, Southern Wesleyan University and Clemson University and began her teaching career in the mountains of SC at 18 years of age and became one of Oconee County’s first women principals during the last 13 years of her educational career at Oakway Elementary School. She loved her family, church and community and was an active and willing leader, supporter and participant. Nothing made Dorothy happier than a free morning with a good cup of coffee and a challenging crossword puzzle.

She is survived by her daughters Teresa (Tommy) Jones of Clemson and Kathryn (Bill) Olson of Irvine, CA, grandchildren Brent Jones, Hannah (David) Charlet, Tyler (Allison) Jones, Tiffany (Charles) Vaughan and Raynes Olson. Additionally, she has 4 great grandchildren, Eva and Clara Jones and Wesley and Wyatt Vaughan, brothers Jerry (Sandra) and Richard (Sally) Black and sister Hazel Shirley along with many special nieces and nephews.

Memorial services will be held on Saturday, March 31, 2018 at 2:00 PM at Bethel Baptist Church with burial and reception to follow. In lieu of flowers and because of her love of education for children, memorials may be made to Bethel Learning Center, 160 Bethel Baptist Church Road, Westminster, SC 29693.
