Gifts & Memorial Donations

Jean Stewart Honeyman, 68, died at home after a short illness on December 7, 2012. She is survived by her dear friend, Jason McCandless of Arlington, VA; cousin, Bonni Manning and her husband, Wayne Palmer of Sherman, CT; cousin, Stewart MacDowall and wife, Kathy of Memphis, NY, David MacDowall and wife, Karen, Alicia Persaud and husband, Amar and Lindsay MacDowall. She also leaves behind her beloved cat, Stormy.

Jean was born in New York City to the late Jean MacDowall Honeyman and Frank C. Honeyman and lived in Manhasset, NY and Glen Head, NY before moving to Williamsburg in 1995.

Jean worked as a sales associate at Wythe Candy in Colonial Williamsburg until her retirement. While living on Long Island, she had worked at Lord & Taylor, A & S and Macy’s. An avid hockey fan and dedicated Anglophile, Jean will surely be missed by all that knew her.

In lieu of flowers, contributions to Heritage Humane Society, The American Cancer Society or Heartland Hospice would be appreciated.

A memorial service will be held at Bruton Parish Episcopal Church on Monday, December 10, 2012 at 2:00 PM. Family and friends will gather immediately following the service at the family home.

    Jean and her late mother and father were close friends of my family. In fact, Jean's mother was my Sunday School teacher when I was three years old. I miss the wonderful values and joy that they brought to my life. May Jean rest in peace. Helen Allen

    To family of Jean: Was reading all the notes Jean sent to me over the years. I hadn't heard from her and didn't know why. I decided to Google her name on my computer today and sadly found that she has passed. Jean and I exchanged coins and Christmas gifts. I met her in 2002 on a trip to Williamsburg with my husband and brother in law who worked in Washington, DC. We exchanged addresses and kept in touch. She has been missed. Our condolences to her family. Patsy and Ken Barton, Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada
