On Saturday, December 19, 2020, Honora Teresa Walsh passed away peacefully at her home in Lansdowne, Virginia surrounded by her loving family. She went from our loving arms here on earth to the loving arms of her “Baby Jesus,” Blessed Mother Mary, her mother Catherine Walsh (nee Lane) and father Michael Walsh, her brother Dan and his wife, Rita Walsh, her brother Joe and his wife, Nancy Walsh, her brother-in-law Bob Fagan, her nephew Robert Fagan Jr. and her cousin Mary Theresa Lane. She leaves to mourn her passing, her beloved sister Ellen Walsh Fagan along with 25 nieces and nephews and their spouses and grand and great grand nieces, nephews, and spouses too numerous to count!
Honora was born in Washington, D.C. on October 11, 1923 to Irish County Kerry immigrants, Catherine Walsh (nee Lane) and Michael Walsh. She attended St Gabriel’s Grade School and the Academy of the Holy Cross in Washington, D.C., the College of New Rochelle and graduated from the Washington School for Secretaries. She had a distinguished 40 year plus career as an administrative assistant in the Patent Department of the E.I. Dupont Company. After retirement, she volunteered at Suburban Hospital in Bethesda MD and along with her sister Ellen, she later moved and spent many happy years enjoying family and friends and splitting her time between her home at Lansdowne Woods in Lansdowne, VA and vacationing in Ocean City, MD.
1 John 4:16 says, “God is Love. Whoever Lives in Love Lives in God and God in Him.”
When God created “Our Honora,” He gave us the Gift of His Love because Honora’s entire life was spent on a “Mission” of Service and Love to and for her family and friends!
