Mary Juanita

Honeycutt Crockett

A private graveside service for Mary Juanita Honeycutt Crockett was held Saturday, Aug. 15, at Welcome Home Cemetery in Grayson. A celebration of her life will be held at a later date. While we regret to delay this celebration, we are vigilant to protect our family and loved ones during this uncertain time.

Juanita was born at home in the wee hours of Aug. 11, 1927, to Fred Otis and Mary Minnie Watts Honeycutt, the oldest of seven children. She went on to become the young bride of a handsome WWII soldier, with whom she raised three of the most intelligent children ever born. If you doubt that, you probably never met her. She would put die-hard LSU fans to shame with her pride in her family.

She and that handsome soldier raised kids and cotton for a few years, then she went to work outside the home for the first time at the US Postal Service. After her retirement from the Post Office, “Neeter” took care of the handsome soldier until his death in 1999. Sometime later, she moved to West Monroe to be closer to family and enjoyed the rest of her years there, where she was active in her Sunday School class at New Chapel Hill Baptist Church until she became unable to attend recently.

She passed peacefully into paradise in the early morning of Thursday, Aug. 13, 2020, in West Monroe, with family at her side.

Juanita was preceded in death by her parents, Fred Otis and Minnie Watts Honeycutt; her husband of almost 56 years, Oran Edward “Jack” Crockett; brother, John W. Honeycutt; sister, Frances Lisotta; and son-in-law, Gilbert Blount.

Left to cherish her memory and celebrate her life are her children: Charlotte Crockett Blount of San Clemente, CA, David Crockett and daughter-in-law, Kathie, of Denver, CO, and Mary Wyant and son-in-law, Therion, of West Monroe; grandchildren: Angela Wyant of Brandon, MS, Adam Crockett and his fiancée, Maret Kargu, of Denver, CO, Chris Wyant of Vidor, TX, and Rachel Edelen and her husband, Ryan, of Denver, CO; great-grandchildren, Cherub Wyant, Dylan Schubert, Asher and Nya Edelen; and siblings, Louise Lizenby of Monroe, Kenneth Honeycutt of Pinckneyville, MS, Clara Wells of Bogalousa, LA, Clinton Honeycutt and his wife Janice, of Baton Rouge, LA; plus several nieces, nephews, friends, extended and informally adopted family, such as her “other son-in-law,” Bo Leporati.

Mamaw’s door was always open, and she looked forward to visits and hugs, and enjoyed being a surrogate “mamaw” to anyone who needed it. The family would like to recognize and offer our heartfelt gratitude to the staff of Rosemont Assisted Living, director Lacey Hedge, Caring Hands Hospice, and adopted granddaughter and hospice nurse, Stacey Jones for all of their loving care of Mamaw and our family during this time. While we grieve for ourselves, we rejoice in knowing that Juanita is in heaven. We can only imagine what glories are being revealed to her today, as she has entered into eternal life with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
