Geraldine Martha (Jerry) Henson

Pauls Valley, Oklahoma — Geraldine Martha (Jerry) Henson, soared into the hereafter on October 4, 2012 at the age of 99.

 An Oklahoma native, she was preceded in death by her husband, Kenneth W. Henson, also of Oklahoma. Married in February 1935, they had two children over the next 14 years.

 They moved their business and residence from Pauls Valley to Houston, Texas in 1963 where they lived until his death.

 Their lives together included many days of fishing and boating along with an active social life in the Houston area.

 Jerry came to Richmond, Virginia from Houston in 1996 to become one of the early residents of the Cedarfield retirement community.

 She is survived by a son, Kenneth W. Henson of Bozeman, MT, and a daughter, Patricia Henson Young (Max) of Richmond, Va.; three grandchildren: Richard Wayne Henson of Bozeman, MT, Jennifer Henson Lewis (Ryan) of Placentia, CA and Mary Lynn Henson of Dickenson, ND; and five great-grandchildren: Jenna and Jordan Henson and Zaiden, Kiera and Lilyana Lewis.

 Mrs. Henson is remembered for her warmth and quick wit and she will be missed.

 A reception in her honor was held in October in Richmond.

 Her final remains were interred at Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Pauls Valley, Oklahoma on Friday, June 14, 2013 where she will lie alongside the graves of her late husband and her parents, Dick and Opal Pitts.
