World travelers hailing originally from Alabama, Ethel Lois Jones Honeycutt and Edwin Honeycutt Jr. are celebrating their 70th anniversary this month.

Wed on Jan. 5, 1952, at Powderly Baptist Church in Birmingham, Ala., Lois worked as a church secretary while Edwin began his career with U.S. Steel and retired after 30 years at his last assignment in Portland, Ore. He went on to work with his son in their formal wear company, Mr. Formal., in Portland, until he retired a second time in 1993.

The couple moved to Sequim in 1994. They were members of the Sequim Museum and Art Center and Sequim Senior Center boards, life members of the Boys and Girls Club on the Olympic Peninsula, and attend Sequim Community Church.

The Honeycutt’s have two children, Edwin lll (Edmay) and Sherrie Honeycutt McCrorie (John). They have four grandchildren, Tayler, Kelsey (Ross), Stephanie, and Brennan, and two great- grandchildren, Harper and Blair.

Prior to their anniversary, they celebrated on an Alaskan cruise, and a road trip to San Luis Obispo.

Because of COVID and the weather, a family gathering has been planned for the spring.
