Katherine "Kay" Henry
It is with sadness that we announce the death of our dear member and MS Division Vice President, Katherine “Kay” Henry. Kay had been fighting her sickness for the last 3 months. She fell and broke her leg on May 17 and was discharged from the hospital to hospice on June 15. She passed away at 12:50 pm on July 2, 2015.
Kay was a dedicated member of The United Daughters of the Confederacy for many years and served in various positions at the Chapter, District, and Division level. She was currently serving as President of the Putnam Darden 2242 Chapter in Starkville, District I Vice Chairman, a Division committee chairman, and as MS Division Vice President. Her dedication and influence in UDC will certainly be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends at this time.
Arrangements are not yet complete, but we will update you as soon as they are finalized.
Janice E. Strohm, President
United Daughters of the Confederacy
