Sue Alice Henry, known to friends as “Suzy”, passed away on April 24, 2021, at the age of 89 years.
She was born Dec. 21, 1931 in Crawfordsville to the late Morris and Ethel (Jarvis) Wright.
Following her graduation from New Ross High School in 1950, she married William E. Henry of Jamestown on May 20, 1950. The couple shared 49 wild years together, thanks to Mrs. Henry’s constant antics and humor.
Mrs. Henry was a devoted and proud farm wife, mother and grandmother. She filled her home with lots of parties full of love, laughter and homemade gifts. She loved working in her garden when she was not sewing or crafting. She worked at both Shewy Flowers and Milligan’s as a floral designer. Mrs. Henry also owned her own Upholstery Shop. She was a member of the Monto Carlo Whisk Club, Couples Card Club and Home Ec. Club for 50 years. Mrs. Henry loved being a part of the Montgomery County 4-H. She was a member herself, a leader during her children’s years in 4-H, and taught her granddaughters through 4-H. She was also a member of the New Ross United Methodist Church.
She will be deeply missed by her family, friends and all who knew her. She will be especially missed by her very devoted son and daughter-in-law. She was the best “Grandma Suzy” her two granddaughters could ask for and was also blessed with four great-grandchildren.
Survivors include her son, Dennis (Mary) Henry of New Ross; two granddaughters, Julie (Brian) Miller of Fishers and Jodi (Brandon) Myers of Crawfordsville; four great-grandchildren, Aidan and Dylan Miller and Lincoln and Lettie Myers.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Bill; daughter, Doneva Jo Henry; and her brother and sister-in-law, Jim Wright and Corenia Wright McLean of New Ross.
Family, friends and others whose lives Suzy touched are invited to Porter Funeral Home at Jamestown, from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. on Monday, May 3, 2021, for visitation, to reminisce and, of course, laugh like Grandma Suzy! A funeral service is scheduled for 1 p.m., with Tami Mussche officiating, and a burial service will follow at New Ross Cemetery.
The family suggest memorial contributions to Montgomery County 4-H Incorporated (check memo: In Memory of Sue Henry, 400 Park Ave., Crawfordsville, IN 47933), or New Ross United Methodist Church (108 State St., New Ross, IN 47968).
