Nelda L. (Honeycutt) Inge

September 30, 1928 ~ January 8, 2019 (age 90)

Nelda Loyce Lane was born on September 30, 1928 in Comanche County, Texas to parents, Opal Ridge Lane and Alvis “Alvie” Lane.  Nelda died on January 7, 2019 in Kaufman, Texas where she had lived for over a year in excellent nursing and hospice care.  She is preceded in death by her sister, Billye Lane Cocke, by her first husband, Rhoney Cecil Honeycutt, by her current husband, William Dean Inge and by her son, Don Lane Honeycutt.

Nelda Inge is survived by her brother, A. W. Lane, and by her children, Cecil Keith Honeycutt, Sandra Loyce Honeycutt Palich, James Timothy Honeycutt and Nathan Scott Honeycutt.  Also surviving Nelda are her step-children, William Eugene Inge, Patricia Louise Inge Soule and Gigi Michelle Inge Bebus.  Nelda is also survived by her many loving grandchildren, great- grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

Nelda Inge attended high school in Hutto, Texas.  She worked many years in retail sales with a Pharmacy, service stations and convenience stores while also raising her large family.  In her early married life Nelda also helped manage a dairy farm. Nelda, in the past few years, lived In Tow, Texas, near Lake Buchanan, with her husband, Bill.  She practiced her Baptist faith, attending a small church in Tow where she met many neighbors who became loyal, respected and treasured friends. Nelda enjoyed her family’s reunions that were held annually in fishing villages in and around the Lake Buchanan area and in Kingsland, Texas.  She enjoyed preparing pies and pasta salads for her kids, who were not bashful in their requests for favorite dishes.  Nelda enjoyed playing cards and dominos, so she looked forward to the reunions to participate in these games while bantering with her family members.  She also loved to tell stories of interesting incidents that occurred throughout her life, such as those with her husband Cecil, who was an agent with the Liquor Control Board.  Nelda would re-live events involving her mischievous sons and daughter.  Although she was never hesitant about providing, to anyone, her opinion, Nelda Inge loved and respected everyone she engaged in life. May this beloved matriarch, Nelda Loyce Inge, rest in the beauty of peace, and may she receive God’s blessings.
