Kathleen C. Honig, 73, of Hamburg, NJ passed away Wednesday, February 24th. Kathleen was born in Philadelphia, Pa on December 27, 1947, before spending most of her childhood in Allentown, Pa with her family where she was one of three daughters of the late Rita and Frank Concannon. In 1968, she married Richard Honig, where they enjoyed living in Washington, DC while Rick finished law school before ultimately moving and raising their family in Franklin, NJ.
Kathleen was predeceased by her husband Richard Honig in 2009. She is survived by their two children; daughter and son-in-law, Cara and Lucas Dorazio, of Belford; and son and daughter-in-law Joshua and Stacy Honig, of Manalapan. Kathleen also leaves behind two sisters, Ellen Happ and Marie Concannon along with 4 grandchildren; Lauren and Zachary Dorazio and Sadie and Josie Honig.
My grandmother went by many names; Kathy, Mom, friend, sister, daughter and to me she was Mimi. My Mimi was a very special person; not just to her family, but to everyone around her. She made lasting impacts with everyone she knew. She loved talking to anyone and everyone; Mimi could strike a meaningful and fun conversation with anyone she talked to. There was no chance she could go shopping without meeting someone new. She was intelligent and well read. If given the opportunity, she could have been put in front of the world’s smartest person and have known exactly what to say. She often helped us with our homework; Mimi could pick up on any crazy and modern math techniques she saw. She enjoyed playing golf with her friends and collecting golf balls that made their way to her driveway. While the green was fun, she could always call the beach her home. Mimi enjoyed our family vacations to Cape May in the summer, and she never missed an opportunity to watch us participate in beach activities. She also went to every cross country meet, track meet, and soccer game she could; cheering loudly from the sidelines. She was there for every Easter and Christmas, where she started the traditions of getting her granddaughters a snow globe and her grandson a Hess truck. She loved to sew and do the occasional knitting. Much of her family’s houses are filled with her quilts and tapestries. My Mimi was a lively person who stars in many of my childhood memories. These memories will pass on through the family as time goes on because she might be gone, but she will certainly never be forgotten.
Love you always, -Lauren
