Ruth Ann (Honeycutt) Burton departed from this life on Saturday, January 16, 2021 at the age of 67. Ann was born September 14, 1953 in Forrest City, Arkansas to Condra Ware and Ruth Howerton Honeycutt.
Ann and her family moved to Heber Springs in 1974 where she worked many years for the SKIL factory. In 2012, she joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This is how she met her husband, Robert Lynn Burton. The two became fast friends and were married on October 20, 2012, just months after meeting. She was a light in his life, and they were devoted companions for each other. Ann seemed to never meet a stranger; she was kind to all and always had a smile and a chuckle. She loved her family and her cats deeply. She will be remembered for her patient, giving nature.
Ann was preceded in death by her parents and her husband, as well as her brothers, James Earl and Billy Wayne Honeycutt, and her sister, Judy Honeycutt. She is survived by her sister-in-law, Holly Honeycutt and nephew, Randy Honeycutt. She is also survived by Robert’s seven children and their spouses, 35 grandchildren, and 34 great-grandchildren who lovingly called her Granny Ann.
A funeral service will held be at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 21, 2021 at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Quitman, Arkansas. Arrangements made by Heber Springs Funeral Home.
