Judith Honerkamp died in Lexington, Kentucky on May 4th at the age of 84. She was born on August 19, 1937 in Morehead, Kentucky to Theoplus and Eva Barker (née Bayes). Mrs. Honerkamp is survived by her daughter, Dee Barnett; son-in-law, Barry Barnett; and granddaughter, Alexandra Barnett. She is preceded in death by her husband, William Honerkamp; her parents; and her sister, Brenda Greer.
Mrs. Honerkamp worked in banking for several years. In 1976, she and her husband started Southland Manufacturing Company, a Lexington-based manufacturer of electronic circuit boards, in the basement of their home. When the business was sold in 1994 it had approximately 120 employees and was a supplier to firms such as IBM, Westinghouse, Square-D, and Lexmark.
Mrs. Honerkamp enjoyed traveling and spending time with family and friends. She was a member of Gardenside Christian Church. For many years, she and her husband were actively engaged in the establishment of a church on east 6th Street in Lexington. That church eventually relocated to the Russell Cave area and is today know as Russell Cave Church of Christ.
A graveside service will be held on May 7th at the Lexington Cemetery. Bro. Fred Mitchell will officiate. The procession will form at Milward Funeral Directors, 159 N Broadway, Lexington, KY at 10:30 am and proceed to the grave site. All are welcome to attend the graveside service and celebrate Judith’s life. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be sent in Judith’s memory to Gardenside Christian Church, 940 Holly Springs Dr., Lexington, KY, 40504 or Russell Cave Church of Christ, PO Box 23222, Lexington, KY, 40523.

So sorry to hear of your Mother’s death. I remember her as such a kind, bright, supportive, fun and friendly young woman when we worked together at the Bank in the 60s. We extend our sympathy to you and family.
Dee, Barry & Alex, I did not know your Mom well but enjoyed meeting her those few times. She was so excited about your upcoming trip. Go and enjoy it in her honor.
