Dolores Howley

April 13, 1930 - August 04, 2018

Dolores "Honey" (Henkel) Howley passed away peacefully in the arms of her loving family on Saturday, Aug. 4th, 2018, in Georgetown, Ky.
Born in Jeannette, Pa on April 13, 1930, daughter of the late Louis and Anne Henkel, Dolores was a selfless, kind and gentle lady with a quiet strength and an easy smile. Mother to Edwin Howley, Irwin, Pa., Diane Partridge, Louisville, Ky., and Coleen Rice (James), Georgetown, Ky., and grandmother to Pat Howley, Ed Howley (Jennifer), Jaime Rice and Cameron Rice. Her son-in law, James Rice, held a special place in her heart, and she was a proud great-grandmother to Savannah and Gabriella Howley.
Dolores was active in many community organizations, she was a den mother for Troop 283 in Irwin, Pa., a leader in Homemakers and the Red Hatters club in Ashland, was in the Double Nickel club at Saint John's Church and a volunteer for Georgetown Community Hospital.
Dolores traveled extensively and was a proud Star Trek "Trekkie", but her real love was her church. Dolores volunteered extensively for years in many church activities. She sang in the church choir and was a Eucharist Minister at Holy Family Parrish in Ashland.
Dolores moved to White Oaks Village in Georgetown, Kentucky in 2006 where she joined Saint John's Catholic Church and embraced the church by volunteering and supporting the activities whenever possible. At White Oaks Village, Dolores was a participant in many activities including the Lunch Bunch and Book Club. For years you could find Dolores volunteering and participating in the fun at many of the White Oak social events.
In addition to her parents, Dolores was preceeded in death by her husband, Patrick Howley, and her brother, Robert Henkel.

Pat and Dolores were our neighbors in Russell, KY. They were very fine people. We especially enjoyed Dolores, happily waving to us as she traveled Thompson Road. Our deepest sympathy to Coleen and the rest of the Howley family.
