OBITUARY

Eileen M Henry

September 4, 1930March 23, 2020

Eileen Millicent Henry (nee Williams) was delivered in birth in the parish of Westmoreland, Jamaica, West Indies, on September 4, 1930, by Edna McLean (nee Richardson). She was the second of three siblings, a beautiful, kind and happy child who was adored by her siblings and cousins, some of whom survived her and still express the same love, respect and admiration for her today. The most commonly heard characteristic is that she never had a mean bone in her body, always pleasant, helpful, generous, faithful, loyal and loving. She worked her way to becoming a young teacher when she met the love of her life, her late husband, Aston Henry, with whom she had three children, Victoria, Reynard and Clover. Mrs. Henry migrated to the United States in 1964, residing in Bronxville, New York, until she moved to Crown Heights, Brooklyn. With her family intact in America, she moved mountains, in times of joy and grief, in moments that would cause a less spiritual being to buckle and cave, to guide, support and protect her children and grandchildren. She was a woman of unshakable faith, who kept all her loved ones in prayer each day. Her church was her second home and charity was one of her passions but, other than her Redeemer, her family, immediate and extended, was at the center of all that she did. She worked for the Bell Telephone system in New York and then in Florida, to which she relocated in 1979, until her retirement from AT&T in 2000. Eileen was a culinary master, a homemaker with unmatched skills in home decorating and creativity which she demonstrated in 3 homes she owned. She was a strong woman of God with a fierce love of Jesus, clearly evident in her parenting and in her life with her husband. Love permeated her entire life and she taught her family, without hesitation, to choose love regardless of the circumstances. That mantle she wore with great pride and joy until she was called to the Mercy Seat, into the Everlasting Arms of her Lord. She is survived by her 3 children, her brother, Noel Harding, 4 grandchildren, 8 great grandchildren, 1 great-great grandson, several nieces and nephews, cousins, god-children and innumerable friends.

After the tears have dried and the goodbyes have been said, all we have to hold onto are the happy memories that we’ve shared with our loved ones who have passed, this is what keeps them alive in our hearts and in our minds, and they will continue to live on, through us.
My Sister Clover I pray that the love of God enfolds you and your family during your difficult times and that He helps you heal with the passage of time. Praying for you always.

Ms Eileen, was the most Kind, Loving, Accepting person I knew, who welcomed me into her home and treated me like family. I will truly miss her genuine radiant smile that seemed to come from her heart.
See you when we meet again, on the other side.
Love, ‘Jonsie’.

Till we meet again! May you be resting in the arms of our Lord Jesus Christ. What brings me peace is knowing you are there! Love, Joyce

My beloved mother and woman of God and purpose, Eileen Millicent Henry, went home to Glory after a long life permeated with love, kindness, loyalty, philanthropy, faith, tolerance and forgiveness. Her family, both immediate and distant relations, was the center of all her actions and focus. The Lord JESUS was the only force that took precedence over family. She was a strong woman, bearing pain and grief, under which a less spiritual person would buckle, with dignity, God's grace and assurance. The most commonly stated description of mommy is that there wasn't a mean bone in her body. She demonstrated these characteristics throughout her 89 years of exemplary life until she was called to the Mercy Seat, into the Everlasting Arms of her Redeemer on Monday, March 23, 2020. Love you eternally, Mamacita. You are still the matriarch of this family.
