Henrietta was an amazing woman who touched the lives of many. She was a member of Full Gospel Tabernacle Church, Lima where she made many long-lasting friendships. She was a dedicated homemaker and took pride in building and raising her family. She was a legendary baker and cook; her children never knew to eat fast food. She loved to clean, and took great pride in finishing a job well done. Her children and grandchildren were her greatest joy in life. Nothing made her heart soar like it did when she would hear her children sing and enjoy fellowship together. Henrietta was an exceptional woman and she will be sorely missed by all those who were fortunate enough to know her.
