In loving memory of a barely hidden angel in disguise, we write
these paltry and entirely inadequate words, to honor Mildred Henry. She
was born Mildred Kisselburg, on August 21, 1949, to Annie Opal and Robby
B. Kisselburg, in Turkey, Texas. Milly was preceded in death by her parents,
one sister (Helen Holbert), one brother (Tommy Arnold Kisselburg), and
ten beloved children (including John Ray and Amy Jo) who were lost to miscarriage.
Left behind to grieve and wait are her devoted husband Ray Henry, of Sadler,
and their children?Janella Henry, of Sadler; and Crystal Michelle Woods,
and her husband Gerald, of Sherman. She is also survived by seven siblings?Frances
Henry, of Gordonville; William Henry Kisselburg, of White Settlement; Dorthoy
Kisselburg, of Gordonville; Janet Fahnert, of Amarillo; Darlene Golden,
and Roberta Ritchey, of Gainesville; and John Kisselburg, of Comfort. The
numerous nieces and nephews, as well as her adopted daughter, Trina Page,
who ate at her table and learned at her knee, will forever have a Milly
shaped hole in their lives. Out of ten children, Milly was the seventh
born, and the last to be born at home. At a simple ceremony, in her Childress
home, she married the love of her life on, March 18, 1967. Milly?s joy
was her family, and every family member who has ever been held in her embrace
knows what it means to be treasured. She made home a place of refuge and
truth, faith and victory. This woman of simple tastes and lowly attitude
never gave anything less than extravagant love; and she inspires the same,
in all the lives she touches. The only career that Milly ever wanted was
to be a wife and mom. For her, the work was never a duty. To be known as
?Ray?s Wife?, or ?Janie?s Mom?, or ?Crystal?s Mom? made her feel proud,
not hindered. Milly never strove to shine, in her own right; and that made
her light even brighter. She was and is the wind beneath our wings. Our
world is darker, because she is gone; but we will be reminded that she
is always with us. We will know that most thoroughly each time we follow
her example, lean on The Lord, and soar (Isaiah 40:31).
Pallbearers are: Chris Ritchey, Jeremy Henry, Tommy Lee Kisselburg,
