She is preceded in death by her beloved husband, Anthony J. Aguilar Sr. “Papa Dude”; parents, Servando and Isabel Padron; and brother, Efrain “Gene” Padron Sr.

Honey was a special woman to all of us and we were blessed to have created so many beautiful memories with her and the photos, videos, and stories that we cherish will help keep us going.
Honey was a strong and proud woman of Catholic faith and a long-time parishioner of St. Mary of the Lake Catholic Parish in Miller, Ind. She was a US Steel retiree with 31 years of dedicated service. She was a long-time member of USW Local 1014. At the age of 48, Honey earned her Bachelor of Science from Commonwealth Business College in 1989. She was a hard worker and proud of her accomplishments as we all were. Honey was goal driven and accomplished whatever she put her mind to. She would work 2, sometimes 3 jobs to provide for her family. She adored her Hallmark TV, there wasn’t a movie on that station that she did not like. She cherished game nights with her sisters and other family members. Mahjong, Yahtzee, and solitaire were among her favorite games on her iPad. Honey enjoyed her Mexican music and her Novellas. Although she hadn’t been in years, Honey enjoyed playing Bingo and going to the casino with her late husband and sisters.
Honey loved and adored her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Her heart was full whenever she saw or talked to them. Everyone loved Honey, she was spoiled with love, and she deserved every moment of it. If you knew her, you know that she was truly one of a kind. She was one of the greatest women that we knew and will be deeply missed by all of us. We know that all her loved ones who passed before her, especially her beloved husband Tony, were awaiting her arrival and have welcomed her with open arms into God’s Kingdom of Heaven. You are now our Guardian Angel, until we meet again. We’ll love and remember you always.
Visitation will be held from 4 – 8 PM on Monday, August 28, 2023, at Calumet Park Funeral Chapel (7535 Taft Street, Merrillville, In, 46410). A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:00 AM Tuesday, August 29, 2023, DIRECTLY at St. Mary of the Lake (6060 Miller Ave, Gary, IN 46403).

Loved my sister very much. We had a great relationship and often talked about our families and remembered growing up, getting married, having children. But most of all we could count on each other as well as our other sisters. You will be missed but not forgotten 💔.

I had the delight in meeting Rose in the 70s when she learned her son was deaf. She was a very loving supportive person. I wish i had stayed in touch. May her memory be a blessing.

I was so sorry to hear of Rose’s passing. My condolences to her family. She was one the sweetest hardworking patients that I have ever worked with.

My mama touched so many lives. Since my father died in 2020, she was the sole heart of the family. She was such a strong woman, the strongest I’ve ever met. What she went through over the last 3 years took strength and perseverance. She struggled but always pulled through the roughest of ailments. She was truly the epitome of how much pain any human being could be put through. Our family always said that she was like a cat with 9 lives, but she was on number 17. We all loved her so much and she knew it. She loved all of us with all she had. Her passing has left an emptiness that is unexplainable. She meant the world to us and she was very spoiled with love. This will take us quite some time to adjust to. When you lose your mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin, friend…with whom meant the world to you, it’s not easy. We love you mama, “Honey”, you will always be with us in our hearts and in all of our memories and pictures. God has reunited you with dad, “Papa Dude” for the rest of eternity and that with help us through this. Until we see you again…God Bless You.
