Georgia Louise Honza
Georgia Louise Honza, 91, passed away Wednesday, June 18, 2014 in Fort Worth, Texas.
Georgia was born February 25, 1923 in Telico, Texas to Charlie and Mary Rose (Taraba) Trojacek. She lived in Telico for a few years until her family moved to a new farm in Ennis, Texas. She had a happy childhood growing up on the farm with her sister, Vickie and brother, Leo. She graduated from Ennis High School and moved to Fort Worth, Texas.
During the war (WWII), she worked as a real “Rosie, the Riveter” at the North American Aircraft Plant. She was of Czechoslovakian heritage and enjoyed the Czech dances in Fort Worth; That is how she became reacquainted with a young man she knew from Junior High School. On January 2, 1947 she married the love of her life, Frank Wesley Honza. On September 9, 1949 their only child, Judy Kaye Honza, was born. Frank worked at Convair (now Lockheed Martin) so they made their home in Fort Worth, but in the early years they traveled to Ennis nearly every weekend to see their parents and work on the farm. She devoted her whole life to taking care of her family. She had worked at Montgomery Ward before her child was born and returned in 1963 to work at the tube station until she retired in 1984. She enjoyed her family of Montgomery Ward friends, and her daughter even worked on the eighth floor with her. Georgia and Frank were happily married until he died in 2001. They were members of St. Patrick Cathedral in Fort Worth and she will be greatly missed by everyone who knew her, especially her daughter, to which her mother was the whole world.
