Alice Ione Henry

Alice was born on June 30, 1922 in Belt, Montana to William Thomas Mike and Ester Elizabeth Trainor. She went to be with her Lord and Savior on April 1, 2010 in Richland, Washington. She spent her childhood in Montana until they moved to Burlington, Iowa her senior year in high school. While in Burlington she met the love of her life, John William Henry. They married on June 14, 1941 and shared 64 years together until John 's death in 2005. Their love for God was evident in everything they did, they led by example, and they touched many lives. When Mom was called home, Heaven welcomed one of it's sweetest angels. We would not wish her back, but it is so very hard to say our earthly goodbye.

Alice moved to Richland in 1945 with sons Gary and Bill and her parents. John joined her after he was honorably discharged from serving in the Army Air Corp during World War II. Their daughter Sharon was the first to be born in Richland, and was followed by sons Dan and Bob and daughter Jeanne.

Mom/Grandma/Mama/Nana was selflessly devoted to her family. She made her home a place full of love and laughter and welcome to all. To walk into her home was to walk into her heart. She truly looked for the good in people, and loved like good was all she could see.

Alice was a true servant of God. Her love for Jesus shined in everything she did. She shared her love for children and God as a Sunday school teacher for 30 plus years at Faith Assembly.

Alice was preceded in death by her husband John, her parents, sister Louise Dowell, daughter Jeanne Olson, grandson Doni Eckert, great granddaughters Brianna and Alexis Eckert and Tamara Lynn Brazerol. She is survived by her children Gary and Suzanne Henry, Bill and Marion Henry, Sharon Eckert, Dan and Joy Henry, and Bob Henry; grandchildren June and Alex Brazerol, Terri Klempel, Teresa and Terry Hancock, Kelly Simpkins, Jon and Penny Eckert, Jodi and Wayne Elston, Jessica Henry, Jami and Don Blossom, Ben Henry, Rachel Frye, Guen and Seth LeMaster, Michelle and Marty Robinson, Tom and Katie Sichler, Angie and Dan Corbett, and Sara and Sean Totten; 26 great grandchildren, 3 great great grandchildren and many extended family members.

Visitation will be at Einan's Funeral Home on Wednesday April 7th from 5pm-8pm. Her memorial service will be held at Faith Assembly in Pasco, Washington on Thursday April 8th, at 11:00am. A luncheon will be provided by the church following the service. A graveside service will follow at 3pm at Sunset Memorial Gardens in Richland. Any donations can be made to Hospice.

  • I send my heartfelt sympathy to Sharon and all the Henry family. My expression is so VERY deep for you at this time; I can still see your Mom waving gently to me at my last visit. There is this one positive thought – our memories of our loved ones can NEVER be taken from us. Bob.

  • Right after the loss of the twins I was really sick with a fever……Grandma came to the house and helped me. I think the entire time I slept she prayed for me because through that entire time I never had better rest then when Grandma was with me. I appreciated her taking the time to drive to Kennewick to help me and all your prayers for us over all these years. Thank You Grandma!
