Henrietta was an active member of Women of Emmanuel. We shared many happy times together working on various events and social activities. I'm pleased to say I have one of Henrietta's lovely paintings, which I treasure, in my dining room. My prayers go out to the family and I say to Henrietta, good and faithful servant, rest in peace. With love, Marilyn Clark
