January 13, 1929 - December 23, 2019
Jewel Lene (Ledbetter, Honeycutt) Goode, of Nashua, New Hampshire, formerly of Morrilton, Arkansas, on Monday, December 23, 2019, passed into glory and Jesus’ loving arms. She was born in Springfield, Arkansas, on Sunday, January 13, 1929, just as an 80 year old Wyatt Earp was leaving this celestial orb. She was a member of the so called “Silent Generation” but was anything but silent her entire life. She was raised by her older brother Charles, her Grandmother and her cherished Aunt Bess. They lived as hard scrabble farmers in Solgohachia, Arkansas, until she met the man of her dreams, in the summer of 1944, at the rope swing on Point Remove creek. He was tall and skinny, but oh so polite and had a million dollar smile, Houston Willis Honeycut. After Houston returned from World War II and service in the Navy aboard the USS Dashiel in the Pacific, Julie and he ran off to Mississippi to get married and started their lives together, April 1946. They were soon blessed with 3 beautiful children, Houston, Nola, and Dean. As their little family grew they began their journeys across the country, moving to; Kansas City, Davenport, Iowa, Sylvan Hills, Sherwood, Arkansas, Solgohachia, Marshaltown Iowa, Ontario, California, and finally back home to Morrilton. Houston (Pop) passed in March 1986 and years later Julie remarried Chuck Goode in Lake Jackson, Texas. After his passing, Julie lived on Overcup Lake next door to her brother Ray. She and Ray spent many an afternoon, watching the sunset, drinking sweet tea and wondering why Coach Bielema didn’t have the Razorbacks run more RPO plays and why such a big guy had such a tiny dog. In July 2016 Julie moved north to New Hampshire to live with her daughter, Nola, and her grandbabies and great grandbabies. Funeral services will be 2:00 p.m. Monday, December 30, at Harris Chapel with Pastor Jeff Crowder officiating. Burial will be at Friendship Cemetery by Harris Funeral Home of Morrilton.
