Loneta loved being a Honey. Her four grandbabies were so dear to her heart. Ben, Lanna, Jace and Hayes were blessings from Heaven to her and they knew how much she loved them. She took great pride in watching Ben play his saxophone and was a big supporter at his concerts. She enjoyed decorating cakes and playing with her granddaughter Lanna. Honey loved watching Jace and Hayes play ball together and was so excited that these two cousins would be playmates for life.
Loneta had a special relationship with her great nieces and nephews also. Preston Weldon, (PW), Kylie, Makena, and Dalton (Dot Dot) held a special place in her heart. They knew that their Auntie loved them and supported them.
Pallbearers will be Jared White, James Cogburn, Dalton Steward, Billy McNeil, Brent Jackson and Neil Hallonquist.
