In Memory of
Charlotte Jean Honet
-

Charlotte Jean Honet passed away peacefully in her Dallas home on March 1, 2022 at age 94. She was surrounded by family, friends, and her beloved dog “Happy.” Charlotte was born April 8, 1927 to Lionel Kenneth Arnold and Lora Annette Killius Arnold. She graduated from Drake University, which is where she met the love of her life, Stephen Joel Honet. They were married for 36 years until he passed on December 9th, 1991. 

Charlotte taught typing and driver’s education while Steve was stationed in Germany for the Korean War. They moved to Houston, Texas, around 1960 where they owned and operated the Bridge and Games Studio of Houston until 1992. In 1974, Steve and Charlotte opened their home to the 12-year-old boy who would show up to play at their bridge studio, Dane Christopher Compton. He started living with them and became their son. Charlotte later moved in with Chris and his wife, Donna, after Steve’s death and helped raise their daughters, Morgan and Taylor. Charlotte was an avid Bridge player until the end of her life and helped manage a bridge studio opened by Donna in 2002, Bridge Academy of North Dallas. Her other great passions were sports and genealogy. She loved the Astros and built a database of 50,000 names that traces back her family and Donna’s family for hundreds of years.

Charlotte is survived by Chris and Donna Compton and their daughters Morgan Seline, 26, and Taylor Compton, 23. She was preceded in death by her husband, her parents, and her brother, Lionel Charles Arnold.

Charlotte was so kind to me when I returned to bridge at BAND. She found me partners, helped me borrow books and was so pleasant. What a gift to all she was. Rest in peace Charlotte. Ribs

Charlotte was a "gift" to BAND. She was always available to come in and fill in if a game needed an extra partner. She always greeted you with a smile when she was collecting money for classes. She will be greatly missed. Prayers for Charlotte and her family.

I met Charlotte and Steve in the late 1970's at their bridge studio on the Southwest Freeway in Houston. What a fantastic couple! They were both so cordial and knowledgeable about the game of bridge. Going to the studio and playing in the beginners room felt like being in a friend's home. It was always the best $5 I would spend all week when I dropped into play 24 to 26 hands of bridge! Because of my friendship with Chris and Donna and their girls we have kept in touch all these years. Charlotte was a great person who was a loving mother to Chris, mother-in-law to Donna and grandmother to Morgan and Taylor. I know they will miss her!!

I will always remember Charlotte for her kindness and help during my years at BAND. It was her nature to be caring and giving; two very special qualities. May Charlotte rest in peace.
