Mary Henson

CORBIN — Mary Lula (Collins) Henson went to be with her Savior and Lord surrounded by her loving family in Bellaire, Mich., on Oct. 15, 2013.  Mary, age 85, was born in Barbourville on June 22, 1928. After her marriage in 1948, she divided her time between Detroit, Kentucky, Florida and Northern Michigan. Anyone who knew Mary never forgot her gentle ways, sweet smile and endearing personality. She was a devoted Christian, wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandma.

Mary was preceded in death by her husband John, parents Huston and Mattie (Crawford) Collins, and beloved sons-in-law Edward Gordon and John Barr.  

She will be greatly missed by daughters Jacqueline Henson-Gordon, Elizabeth Ann Barr, and Christine Henson-Sparks. Mary is also survived by grandsons Kenneth E. Gordon, Johnny R. (Rachel Bilyea) Barr, Michael J. (Leah) Gordon, great-granddaughters Kyla Paige Barr, Molly Allison Gordon and Alexia Faye Barr, beloved sisters Alabama (Vernon) Moore of Corbin and Lizia Marie (Ted) Simpson of Gray as well as a host of family members and friends.

Cremation was handled by Mortensen Funeral Homes in Bellaire, Mich., and a memorial service and interment will take place in Barbourville on June 22, 2014.  

At the request of family, please make any memorial donations in remembrance of Mary to the Bellaire Commission on Aging or Munson Hospice in Traverse City. Please sign her online guestbook
