Family and friends are invited to attend the graveside service on Saturday, July 13th at 10:00 am at Chapel Hill Funeral Home, 8701 NW Expressway, Oklahoma City for June Elizabeth Honiker who died peacefully, with family by her side on July 10, 2019 in her 96th year.

Beloved wife of the late William D. Honiker, decorated World War II veteran and POW. Much loved mother of Dan, Tom, Jim (Cathy), and Jane. Cherished grandmother of Daniel (Tiffany), Shayna (Wes), Dillon, Willie, Elizabeth, and Jessica. Great grandmother of Hollis, Savannah, Micah, Hunter, and Titus.

June lived a full life as a caring mother, fun-loving grandmother, and gentle great-grandmother. She enjoyed travel but was a true Oklahoma City gal born and raised. A proud Yell leader and graduate of Central High School, she kept the high school gang together for many years by planning monthly luncheons. Thursday nights were card or board game night with neighborhood friends, and she made at least a weekly trip to a hamburger joint for her fix of French fries and a juicy burger.

Her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren were her proudest achievements and her example of kindness and acceptance of all will be her legacy. She will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts In lieu of flowers, donations to Wounded Warrior Project are welcome. www.woundedwarriorprojct.org or Wounded Warrior Project PO Box 758517, Topeka, KS 66675-8517.

June was a really special woman. She and our mother Jo were good neighborhood and travel friends. Janie, I know you and your family are going to miss her. I'm glad you got to enjoy her for so many years! 96!! Amazing!

Remembering the too few times I was able to celebrate with your mother, she was certainly a firecracker! My memory is of a strong and independent woman who met the challenges of life with determination and always a feisty spirit. Good for her! My condolences to all

To all of June's family we offer our deepest sympathy in your loss. June and I were close cousins in our Baker family. My grandfather and June's mother were sister and brother. My grandfather always told me that June was his favorite niece. I can well understand that, as she was such a lovely lady, cousin, and friend. We shared our Baker family history through the Mountain Meadows Massacre Descendants organization and June and her daughter Jane were with us in Arkansas and Utah many times.
Bob and I spent nights at her home in Okla City on our way to AR and her hospitality was wonderful. We loved her little dog "Betty Jean".
I have many pictures of our times together and I will cherish them always. One of my memories is planning a Baker family reunion at her home.
I could go on and on.
May the Lord give each one of you His strength, comfort, and peace in the coming days ahead.
Love,
Cheri Baker Walker and her husband Bob

I never saw this precious lady without a big smile. What a blessing she has been. Her love for our ancestors and families from the Mountain Meadows Massacre was evident. She always attended anything she was able to when we had meetings. I loved her and I'm sure everyone she ever came in contact with did as well. We will miss her.
