Mrs Henry was a wonderful and well respected lady. I remember her all through my high school years. She always had an encouraging and kind word to say to all of those blessed to come in contact with her. There is a special place in Heaven for her. My sincerest condolences to her family and friends.
There are many words to describe Pat Henry: loving, kind, generous to a fault, encouraging and faithful. But the one word that sticks out in my mind, since I worked with her for over 35 years, is "Servant". She did so much for so many. You could call her to help with anything and she couldn't get there fast enough to lend a hand. Needless to say she'll be sorely missed - VBS, Choir, Pantry, Sunday School to name a few. But what I will miss most is her friendship. All those who knew and loved her are feeling the loss, but we know comfort come in knowing death is not the end. Those who die in Christ will live eternally.
Our deepest sympathy is extended to Marijayne, Don, Cindy and all the grandchildren.
Mrs Henry was my guidance counselor at Triton from 1966 thru 1969. I just loved her. Many years passed and our paths crossed again in 2000 when we saw each other at Hair Hut where I saw her just about every Saturday morning. She was always a loving a gracious women. I will miss her. Sincerely, MaryJane White Haines
I was blessed the day I met Mrs. Henry. She got me through Physics in my Senior year. She inspired me to go to college. Every time we spoke she made me feel special. Mrs. Henry lived a full life and always had a smile and a word of encouragement for everyone. I know your are with God and you have been welcomed to heaven. You will live in my heart always dear Mrs. Henry.

Mrs. Henry was my guidance counselor. She taught me to believe in myself and that I can accomplish anything if I work hard. She has been a part of my life for over 50 years. I will always cherish the memories and know that someday I will be thanking her in Heaven.
She was one of the kindest woman I've ever met she was so good to me in school as my counselor. I loved her at Trinity Lutheran Church in runnemede with the choir she was phenomenal ❤️❤️
What can you say about Pat Henry but the word dedication. I met Pat while I was going to Triton High School and she was Vice Principle. I ran Mr.Mignona the other Vice Principles passes for him and because I pretty well had the run of the building Pat would always tease me when she saw me and would say Scotty you have more power in this school that Mr.Capelli who at the time was Principle.
We would laugh but that became an on going gag from that point on even making Mr.Capelli when he would pass me ask me if he needed a pass to be in the hall. Then in going to Our Lutheran Church in Runnemede and doing the Lay Readings on Sundays I got to know Pat even better then. Pat was just a wonderful caring person from helping the homeless collecting cloths and stocking the food pantry to bringing in her hand puppets to get a point accross to people in Our church on Sundays about an event coming up in a humorous way. Loosing Pat will be a tremendous loss to all our Church Family, her own family and to anyone else she gave guidance and help to, and to just making everyone just laugh and smile.
Love you always Pat.
