February 17, 1929 - November 23, 2021
Eva Ernestine Weedon Honeycutt, age 92, affectionately called “Honey”died peacefully in her sleep to be with her Lord Jesus Christ on Tuesday, November 23, 2021. You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand. Psalm 16:11 She was a very wise, strong, simple woman who lived life well as a beloved daughter, sister, wife, aunt, mother, grandmother and friend. Eva was born on February 17, 1929 and was raised at Hobson Farm in Weedonville, King George, Virginia. She was the daughter of the late James B. Weedon,Jr. and Kate Howard. Eva was preceded in death by six brothers, Bernard, Ray, Leroy, Joe, Franklin and Jerome Weedon, a sister, Helen Weedon, husband Robert P. Honeycutt and son-in-law, Bill Bailey. She is survived by her son, Donald Helms, daughter, Joy Bailey and stepdaughter, Debbie McGhee, two grandchildren Brent Bailey (Candice Brooks) and Scott Bailey (Karen Durm) and step-daughter Renea McGhee. The light of this world was her great-grandchildren Blake, Brooke, Jacob, Alex and Preston Bailey. Her many nieces and nephews provided much enjoyment by staying in touch with her throughout her life. She left a legacy of devotion to her faith, dedication to her family and was a great example of handling time and finances wisely. She was a member of Calvary Baptist Church and McElwain Baptist during her adult life in Birmingham. A well-worn Bible was always beside her reading chair. The grands and greats brought her happiness and she enjoyed time spent with them. She loved history, and enjoyed her time traveling, camping, fishing and staying up with current events and politics. Appreciating the value of money and hard work, she squeezed a penny until it bent, picked turkey clean to the bone and made Spam taste like gourmet steak. She believed in working hard and keeping things organized, and she always stood firm on her convictions. Eva was employed by Union Envelop Company, Aland’s Department store at Eastwood Mall and retired from Central/Compass Bank. A graveside service for Eva will be held Monday, November 29, 2021 at 2pm at Forest Crest Cemetery, 5730 Bankhead Hwy, Birmingham, AL 35210. Vaughn Stafford, lead pastor of Clearbranch Methodist will officiate. The family would like to thank the staff of Legacy Assisted Living and East Glen Nursing Facility for caring for her during her final days.
