Beverly Henry, 66, passed away quietly in her home Nov. 2, 2017. She was surrounded by her adoring family and friends as she passed on to the next realm.
She was born Beverly Gayle McAlear June 24, 1951, to Dorothy and Richard McAlear of Mount Vernon.
She was a member of the Mount Vernon High School Marching Band and graduated from Mount Vernon High School in 1969.
She moved to Noblesville in 1970 where she met Tony Henry. After a short courtship, they were married in 1971 and moved into a home in Westfield. There they had three children, Ryan, Julia and Richard.
She was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2014, but it never slowed her zest for life. She swooned over her grandchildren, loved to go shopping for antiques and enjoyed traveling the United States. She was a woman who would not allow fear to control her life. She enjoyed going Skydiving and Zip-lining through the forest canopy, she never allowed the fear to stop her from enjoying all the thrills that life has to offer. Being brave in the face of adversity was just part of who she was.
Because of her selfless nature, she did not want a memorial or service in her honor. She asked that her memory be preserved by either donating to your local Women's Shelter or to your local Humane Society in her name. Flowers wither and die, donating to help others lives on forever.
Our family would like to give a special thanks to Heart to Heart Hospice for their compassionate and loving care

She made us laugh. She brought a smile to our faces just being who she was, a loving mother, wife and friend.
