Cynda “Cindy” Honaker Carroll, age 100 of Swords Creek, Virginia went to be with the Lord Tuesday, April 25, 2023 at the home of her daughter. She was very well taken care of by her daughter, Madeline and her grandson, Jimmy who tried to give her anything and everything she asked for.
Born September 26, 1922 in (John’s Creek) Kemper, Kentucky she was the daughter of the late Johnnie & Ollie Oliver Honaker. She was the seventh of ten children. She was also preceded in death by her husbands, Hobert Bostic and Clifford Carroll, daughter, Josephine (Harley) Perkins, son, William Bostic, sisters and brothers, Mack, Rose, Ella, Fern, Quella, Nancy, Cynthia, Fannie and Troy, sons-in-law, Thomas “Tommy” Harless, Garland Richardson and daughter-in-law, Dora Ann (Ratcliff) Bostic.
She loved life and always wore a smile. She had that smile even when she was sleeping and wanted to be remembered for happy times, she loved music and had a variety of instruments.
She will be sadly missed by all who knew her. Living during the great depression she had a lot of stories to tell. She lived through a lot of adversity and overcame them all. Her smile always told the story and she was the last surviving member of her family.
She lived in Kemper, Kentucky and married Hobert Bostic until she moved to Swords Creek, Virginia where she lived. She moved to Columbus, Ohio, then later to Grahm, Kentucky. She lived in Grayson, Kentucky when she moved to Pulaski and the last year and two months she lived with her daughter (Madeline) and very special grandson (Jimmy) in Swords Creek who took very good care of her.
Cynda’s motto was – “When you quit smiling, you get Old”
In her 100 years and 7 months she had many friends.
