Alice Bramble Henry, 93, of Burgaw and formerly of Pineville passed gently from her earthly life January 8, 2020 at Pender Memorial Hospital.
She was born May 4, 1926 in Pender County where she grew up in the rural area of Atkinson. She was the daughter of the late Grover Cleveland and Rena Ann West Bramble. In addition to her parents, Alice was proceeded in death by her husband, Robert James Henry; brother, William “Billy” Bramble and sister, Melva Bramble Chase.
Alice is survived by her son, Grover Thomas Henry, Sr.; grandchildren, Karen McGowen and Grover Thomas Henry, Jr. (Dawn); great grandchildren, Alex, Nick, and Zack McGowen, Maggie Henry and Tristen Cox; sister-in-law, Lucille Bramble; several nieces and nephews that she dearly loved.
Alice was a member of Caswell Presbyterian Church. Alice was not only a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt, but a loyal friend. She loved the song of the birds, the beauty of nature which was evidenced by her lovely yard that she worked so hard in for many years. Her strong Christian faith and sweet spirit will be missed.
