Anita Elizabeth Heidtmann
August 10, 1925 – February 6, 2018

Anita Elizabeth “Honey” Heidtmann, went to be with her Lord on Tuesday, February 6, 2018. She was 92. Honey was born in Queens Village, New York to John Sutphin Kavanagh and Anita Marie Bucholt Kavanagh August 10, 1925. Honey had many accomplishments during her lifetime. She was voted most popular and crowned the Queen of Sewanhaka High School in Floral Park, NY and during her senior year, she was “picked from the tribe” for the female lead in the Senior Play “Ever Since Eve”. After graduation, she attended secretarial school and worked in downtown New York at Rockefeller Center. During WWII, Honey waited for and then married on June 7, 1946Lloyd Robert Heidtmann, a Marine, and the youngest son of Mayor Frederick Heidtmann of Floral Park, NY. They had two children, Jill and Kenneth. Lloyd and Honey remained in New York until 1957 when the family moved to W. Peabody, MA, and in 1961 moved to Houston, TX where they lived until Lloyd retired from Humble Oil Company. After Lloyd retired, they moved to Briarcliff, TX where they built a beautiful home on a hill overlooking Lake Travis.
Honey was involved in many volunteer activities including the Mental Health Association in Houston, TX. She also received a Nurse’s Aide certification from the American National Red Cross. However, on her first day, when asked to empty a bed pan she immediately retreated to a broom closet to hide and there she realized she was not cut out for this line of work. This was her first and last day as a Nurse’s Aide. Her favorite activity was hosting and attending social events. One of her most beloved socials was the Champagne Birthday Club of Briarcliff. Honey had a passion for shopping. No one rivaled her when it came to jewely, clothes, cocktail suits, and shoes. She was quirky, quick-witted, funny, sweet, determined, strong-willed, but loving. Honey was a precious daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.
She is survived by her daughter Jill Heidtmann Tysseland Runion and husband Robert “Bob” Runion; her son Kenneth Lloyd Heidtmann and his wife Kathy Nettles; grandchildren Paige Elizabeth Tysseland Robbins, John Kavanagh Tysseland, and his wife Veronica Clemens, and Layne Elizabeth Heidtmann; great-grandchildren Hadley Elizabeth Robbins, John Milford “Jack” Tysseland, and Charles Kavanagh “Charlie” Tysseland. She is also survived by her sister Doris Ann Kavanagh LaMagna Coiner. She is predeceased by her husband Lloyd Robert Heidtmann of 40 years and Jill’s first husband, Milford Selner Tysseland, Jr.
A Memorial Service will be held Saturday, February 17, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. at Bee Creek United Methodist Church, 3000 Bee Creek Rd, Spicewood, TX.
