Monya Linnie Hauk Owens passed away on July 30, 2019. Family and friends will gather to celebrate her life of 82 years at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 17, 2019, at First Christian Church in Lubbock.

Monya was born on January 30, 1937, to Elton and Tom Alta Dixon Hauk in Lubbock, Texas. Monya graduated from Littlefield High School in 1955 and from Stephens College in 1958. She married Joe Paul Owens on August 15, 1959.

Above all else, Monya ensured they had laughter in their world.
