She moved to Charlotte, NC in 1975 where she resided until her death.
While living in Charlotte, Henrietta worked for 20 years at United Parcel Service until she retired. She held many jobs there and made lifelong friends over the years. Henrietta was a special person who loved people unconditionally. All who knew her loved her immediately. She was a great cook and would take joy in feeding you or baking you a birthday cake. Those cakes were delicious and full of love. Henrietta was also very creative. She painted ceramics for several years, including a beautiful Nativity Set that we still love to display. Henrietta loved children of all ages and enjoyed spending time with her Grandchildren, Godchildren and any children she had the pleasure to meet.
Henrietta will be dearly missed by all of her family and friends who will always cherish the many memories made with her.
