Mother Henry, "Putt" Aunt Amy, a cherished figure in Augusta, Georgia, and originally from Spalding, Jamaica, passed away at her residence on January 19, 2024, following a series of strokes. Born on July 17, 1943, to Alice Davis and John Henry, Mother Henry's vibrant spirit and unwavering dedication to her community made her a beloved individual in both her hometowns and her place of birth. She attended and graduated from the Mount Olivet School in Spaulding Jamaica. Her professional journey was not just a job but a calling, as she brought comfort and care to those she served. Mother Henry's love for helping people led her to obtain a nursing certificate from a prestigious medical school in Chicago, Illinois, where she was revered for her compassion and skill.
Mother Henry's life was a testament to her deep faith and commitment to service. Her home in Chicago was a sanctuary for the brethren of the Apostolic Light House Church, where she worked tirelessly alongside the late Pastor Eugal Henry. She was known for her generosity, often opening her home to those in need and ensuring that every visitor left feeling nurtured and cared for. Her Saturdays were dedicated to cleaning the church, and Sundays saw her providing food for the saints, a task she performed with joy and dedication.
Perhaps most notable was Mother Henry's mission to care for the sick and shut-ins. With unwavering passion, she would cook, travel by public transportation, and ensure that the sick brethren were well-fed and comforted, regardless of their location in Chicago.
Mother Henry's legacy is one of selfless love, boundless generosity, and a deep commitment to her community and faith. Her absence leaves a void in the hearts of those she touched, but her spirit of service and love continues to inspire.
