Theodosia "Theda" Henry Obituary

     Theodosia “Theda” Kathryn King Henry of Denton, MD peacefully passed away on Saturday, February 3, 2024, at Homestead Manor in Denton. She was 89 years old.

     Born and raised on a farm in Cooperstown, PA on June 18, 1934, Theda was the daughter of the late James Byers King and Dorothy Louise Lusher King. Her husband, Albert Nelson “Sonny” Henry, who affectionately called her "Kitty", passed away on April 15, 2002. Theda was a bookkeeper for the Peoples Bank of Maryland in Denton for 25 years, retiring in 2005.

     Sports were a mainstay in Theda's life. As a young woman she enjoyed participating in the local basketball and bowling leagues. She was an avid fan of all sports, whether it was her children and grandchildren playing baseball, softball, field hockey, tennis, and recently pickleball, or her beloved Baltimore Orioles. Theda's five children kept her busy as a North Caroline High School Band parent and 4-H All Star and leader. An accomplished seamstress, she was a member of the Quilters Guild and the Caroline County Homemakers Club. She was a member of St. Luke’s United Methodist Church.

     Theda is survived by a daughter, Cindy A. Taylor (Chet) of Huntingtown, MD; four sons: Alan B. Henry (Kelly) of Millsboro, DE, Craig E. Henry (Marsha) of Denton, David G.
