Obituary: Lulu Honeycutt


Lulu Marcella Snow Honeycutt passed away peacefully on February 10. 2003 at her vacation home on Cat Island in The Bahamas, following a courageous three-year battle with breast cancer.

Lulu was born in 1956 in Salt Lake City to Judge Marcellus K. Snow and Louise Whitaker Snow. She graduated from East High School in 1975 and then attended Utah State University. In 1979 she moved to Seattle, WA, and from December 1983 to June 1985 served in the South Carolina Charleston mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints under President J. Weston Daw. After her return to Seattle she met and, in 1995, married the love of her life, James D. Honeycutt, in the Seattle LDS Temple. For 12 years, until she became too ill, Lulu sang first alto with the Seattle Choral Company.

She was an avid contra, swing and ballroom dancer.

She is survived by her husband, James, of Renton, WA; her beloved stepchildren, David (April), Michael, Jeffrey, Brooke, Jordan, and Jonathan Honeycutt; mother, Louise Snow of Salt Lake City; sisters Dianne Hansen (Bill) of Centreville, VA, and Suzanne Robinson (Rich) of Salt Lake City; brothers Marcellus Snow (Jo) of Honolulu, HI, Philip Snow (Kathy) and Stephen Snow of Salt Lake City; and many aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces, and cousins. She was preceded in death by her father.

Lulu never gave in to the fear of cancer and maintained her zest for life, her sense of humor, and her faith to the very end.

She will be deeply missed by her family and many friends. Her husband, mother, and sisters were blessed to be with her in The Bahamas at the time of her passing.

A memorial service was held on Sat., March 1, at 2:00 p.m. at the Skyway LDS Chapel, Seattle, Washington. In lieu of flowers the family has requested donations to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, 1-800-462-9273 or online at
