    Each time I visited with Henrietta at West Vue I came away feeling refreshed. My job was to bring cheer to the residents and I received so much more from them. Henrietta loved life and people. She will always be remember for her cheerfulness.

    Grandma told the most fascinating stories. I remember her telling us about growing up during the depression. She and her parents worked at a canning factory that was somewhere nearby. She would go to school after working a few hours in the morning and then would go back and work for a few hours after school. Then she and her mom would come home, do chores, fix dinner, and her dad would come home late from work at the canning factory and they would all eat dinner together. Some of the things she would eat makes my stomach churn, but she had the attitude that you ate what you had and was grateful to have it. Grandma was the hardest working woman I ever met in my life and she didn’t ever complain about it at all. That’s just what you had to do and she accepted it for what it was. Didn’t want a hand out from anyone and always willing to help out her neighbors. What a great role model.

    I did not have the pleasure of knowing Mrs Walcher but Debbie, her granddaughter spoke highly of her. Sounds like she had a wonderful full life.

    I did not know Mrs. Walcher but I had visited with her daughter Rayetta. I work for a lady that was in the next room to Mrs. Walcher in the nursing home. I did not know that Rayetta and I live on the same JJ Hwy. I am sorry for your loss but know that our Lord will comfort you in your sorrow.

    I had not seen Aunt Henrietta in many years. I am truly thankful that she knew the Lord and we have that blessed hope of seeing our loved ones again. I am saddened that I cannot make the trip to be in the services on Wednesday but my prayers are with you family.

    Love you… CE

    I always enjoyed the times/spirit I was around Henrietta (and her family). Clearly there’s tears ahead and she will be missed. Never-the-less, the passing of someone headed home should actually be a party.

    A good name is better than fine perfume,
    and the day of death better than the day of birth.

    I have found memories of Ray and Henrietta. They were a great influence on my life as a youngster growing up in West Plains. I regret that I will be unable to pay my final respects at the service on Wednesday. I know that her life touched many people across the years and she will be greatly missed. Be assured of our prayers and thoughts in the days ahead.

    I enjoyed every moment that I had the pleasure of spending with my grandma. I was with her up until just a few hours before she drew her last breath and I know she is in a far better place now than any of us left behind are. She is at peace, pain-free, and praising her Lord Jesus with family and friends who have gone home before us.
    We always used to joke about when I was younger and would come and visit her and my Grandpa for “3 weeks and 21 days” because I didn’t realize that 3 weeks was 21 days. I enjoyed coming to their farm and seeing all the animals and now I live in view of the farm. The past 17 years I have had the pleasure of having Grandma for my next door neighbor.
    I will miss my Grandma’s presence here on this earth as she taught me so much and so much more wisdom to share from her nearly 93 years of life but as I mentioned before, I know she is in her eternal reward now I wouldn’t wish her back here for anything.
    I love you Grandma, and I will be looking for you when I reach my reward when my days on earth are up. Enjoy your reward, hug all the family for me, and tell them all I love them.

    I’m so grateful that I got to spend time with Henrietta after I moved here to West Plains. She shared some wonderful stories and memories about grovwing up with my Dad, who is her first cousin. Through Henrietta, I have also gotten to know her family and my other cousins better and I will miss not being able to visit with Rayetta at West Vue. At her service, I talked with Ray Webb, who owns my grandparents farm, and found out I have another cousin on my Mom’s side who still lives in West Plains! Knowing Henrietta has been like a gift that just keeps giving. And what a wonderful picture here. My love to you all.
