Tylerite to celebrate 103rd year today


Katie Honeycutt will celebrate her 103rd birthday today at Waterton Plaza in Tyler, family members announced.

Mrs. Honeycutt was born Dec. 31, 1911, in Troup and moved to Tyler when she was 3 years old. In the 1950s, '60s and '70s she worked as a nurse at Mother Frances and Medical Center hospitals.

She has three children; seven grandchildren; and 13 great-great-grandchildren. She is a charter member of First Assembly of God — the only surviving charter member, according to information from the family.

Mrs. Honeycutt moved to Waterton Plaza on Sept. 19, 2010, and is still going strong, family members said. She enjoys her Dr. Pepper daily.

Family members said she is full of love, loves her family and, most of all, loves the Lord.
