Martha Jones Smith

Sullivan's Island

Martha Jones Smith, 63, of Sullivan's Island, SC, moved beyond to her heavenly home on June 13, 2014. Martha was born in Fort Worth, TX, on April 27, 1951, to Richard L. and LaNelle Jones. She grew up in Greenville, SC, graduating from Wade Hampton High School. She attended University of Georgia. Martha moved to Charleston, SC, where she married Ellison D. Smith, IV, and was employed by The Beach Company until she retired in 1994. She spent her time nurturing her flowers at her home on Sullivan's Island, and providing a warm and unique gathering place with her great food served up with her kind and generous spirit. One of her greatest passions was being out in Nature - fishing, camping, and exploring with her husband, Ellison. Seeking new adventures with her husband and her sons added so much joy to her life, especially the many trips to Belize and beautiful islands in the Caribbean.

Martha is survived by her husband, Ellison, and beloved Chesapeake Bay Retriever, Maya. Her sons, Stroud Honeycutt and his wife Meah, with their children Magnolia and Allman of Little Creek, VA, and Jacob (Jake) Honeycutt and his wife Julie of Greenville, SC, have been a focal point of her life and love. Also surviving are her mother, LaNelle J. Wunch, of Greenville, SC, and sister, Natalie Pace and her husband Norman of Greenville, SC, and sister, Cindy Wilson of Pittsboro, NC, along with two nieces and two nephews. Also surviving are Ellie and Luke Smith, children of Martha's step-son, the late Lucas Smith and his wife Helen.

Martha - wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend - all of these roles have been encompassed by a beautiful person so vibrant and strong, with the joy and creativity of life, giving of all she had for those she loved.

In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory may be made to: Roper Hospice, 1483 Tobias Gadson Boulevard, Suite 208 A, Charleston, SC 29407.

A private Celebration of Martha's Life Memorial Service will be held at a later date. Arrangements by J. HENRY STUHR, INC., MOUNT PLEASANT CHAPEL.
