July 12, 1943 — Feb. 7, 2013
Charlotte Honeywell, a longtime Davis resident, left this material world suddenly Thursday evening, Feb. 7, 2013. Charlotte worked for UC Davis for 40 years retiring from the history department in 2003. Charlotte began her career with UCD in the English department moving onto the Philosophy department and finally the History department.
Her multifaceted life and interests leave behind a large community of caring and loving friends. She belonged to several informal social groups such as “The Crazy Ladies,” “The Diamonds,” “MSO Dinner Group,” and a prayer circle that met weekly for 18 years. Charlotte was also a volunteer at the Senior Center with the Travelaires and enjoyed their trips around California. She enjoyed morning walks daily and was a regular participant in the Fit-for-Life exercise classes each week. Her absence in these groups will be sorely missed.
Charlotte’s zest for life and love of travel took her on many adventures regionally, out of state and worldwide. Her favorite form of transportation was by Cruise Ship. In addition to travel, she loved fine foods, fine wines and the arts. She was a loving, generous, and loyal mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend to many and will be missed by all who knew her. Although our hearts are broken by her passing, we all wish her well on this new adventure into everlasting life!
Charlotte was preceded in death by her father Wayne Leland Caffee, mother Helen Louise Caffee, grandson Timothy Tetreault, former husband Kenneth Honeywell, father-in-law Norton Honeywell and mother-in- law Martha Honeywell.
She is survived by her daughter Dawn Honeywell Tetreault (Dellas); granddaughters Angela Silva Evans (Davon), Michelle Tetreault and Christina Petersen (August); grandsons Brian, Alexander and Christopher Tetreault; great-grandson Darius Evans; sister-in-law Gerri Adler; and nephew Tyson Adler.
Remembrances may be made in her memory to Cache Creek Lodge, 435 Aspen Street, Woodland, CA 95695.
Arrangements for a celebration of Charlotte’s life are pending.
