Katherine "Kay" Henry

It is with sadness that we announce the death on July 2, 2015, of our dear member and MS Division Vice President, Katherine “Kay” Henry.   

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.

Visitation for Kay was Friday July 10 from 5 - 7 P.M. at Welch Funeral Home, 201 W. Lampkin, Starkville, MS 39759. The funeral was held on Saturday, July 11 at 10:00 A.M. at the same location.
