FORT MILL, SC - Dorothy “Dodi” Honko, 66, died early Saturday, November 2, 2013 at the Wayne T. Patrick Hospice House in Rock Hill, SC, following a six-year battle with cancer.

Born in Pinehurst, NC in 1947 to parents Thompson, a Presbyterian minister, and Anna, a schoolteacher, Dodi grew up with her sister, Margaret, and two brothers, Tom and John, moving from city to city as her father started new congregations.

Known for her outgoing, fun-loving personality, Dodi became one of the first commercially licensed female pilots in the 1960s while living in Atlanta, GA. Shortly afterward, she moved to East Windsor, NJ to work for a medical supply company where she met her husband, Nick. They were married in 1975, and their first child, Anna, was born in 1979 in Princeton, NJ. When her husband’s job moved them to Charlotte, NC in 1980, Dodi happily returned to the South and the family settled in Tega Cay, SC in 1981. Her second child, Nicholas, was born in 1983.  Dodi loved raising her children and spent many hours volunteering at their schools before having a successful career in real estate.

She is preceded in death by her brother, Thompson, and two stepchildren, Curt and Craig.

Dodi is survived by her husband, Nick, and her two children, Anna of Frederick, MD, and Nicholas of Charleston, SC.

Ms. Dodi was my best friend, and the love of my life. I will miss you forever... Love you, Sunshine.
— Nick Honko, Sr.
Mom supported me in everything I did. I’m thankful to have had someone believe in me like she did.
— Nick Honko, Jr.
I had the privilege of having a mother who truly dedicated herself towards the goal of raising two independent children, and was always there to help me realize my dreams...
— Anna Honko
