Judy R Henry

January 15, 1949 — April 7, 2024

In loving memory of Judy R. Henry, a cherished wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. Born on January 15, 1949, in Yakima, WA, Judy's journey in this world came to a peaceful end on April 7, 2024, in La Mesa, CA. She was known for her warm and caring nature and will forever be remembered for the love and joy she brought into the lives of those around her.

Judy's life was colored with vibrant threads of creativity and kindness. She found her passion for sewing early on, spending countless hours in fabric stores and her quilting room. Judy's talent shone through as she crafted exquisite quilts that won her several awards at local fairs. Her love for sewing extended beyond personal projects; she generously donated her quilts to charity, spreading warmth and comfort to those in need.  Judy had a deep passion for horses, whether traversing winding trails or competing in shows with her beloved horse Zoomer. Her bond with horses transcended mere hobby: it was a lifelong love affair, marked by dedication and compassion.

Aside from her remarkable skill as a quilter and equestrian Judy's culinary talents were also celebrated. Holidays were a special occasion for her – an opportunity to gather family and friends around delicious meals she lovingly prepared. Although she wasn't fond of baking, she once made an apple pie from scratch but amusingly refused to eat it after deeming it unworthy of her own standards.

Known for her kind-hearted spirit and infectious laughter, Judy had a way of making everyone feel welcomed and cared for. Her sense of humor brightened many days, with stories that often left listeners both entertained and inspired. She was the life of the party, always ready to hit the dance floor and create lasting memories with her loved ones.

Judy's proudest moments centered around her family. She shared a beautiful life with her husband and best friend Tom J. Henry, whom she loved dearly. Together, they enjoyed traveling and spending time with family and dear friends. Spending quality time with her grandkids brought immeasurable joy into her life. She often remarked that the best part of having children was grandchildren who filled her days with laughter and love.

Judy will be deeply missed by her surviving family: Thomas J Henry (husband), Joey Rzesnowiecky (son), Stefany Rzesnowiecky Twamley (daughter) and Dustin Twamley (son-in-law), Brock and Brennan Rzesnowiecky (grandsons), Cadence Twamley (granddaughter), Kirk and Keith Kanie (brothers), Janet Donoho (sister), many nieces and nephews, as well as many close family friends.

Inse Kean (mother) and Kyle Kanie (brother) precede Judy in death but their memories will forever live on in the hearts of those who knew them.

Judy's departure from this world was surrounded by the love of those she held dear. While we mourn the loss of a remarkable individual, let us take solace in knowing that her spirit lives on through the countless lives she touched with her kindness and creativity.

Rest in peace, dear Judy. Your legacy of love and laughter will be forever etched in our hearts. 

A celebration of Judy's life will be held to honor the beautiful legacy she leaves behind on May 25, 2024 at Palo Verde Ranch Lakehouse (3750 Via Cielo Azul Alpine, CA 91901)  from 11:00- 3:00, please come and celebrate Judy. Please RSVP to Stefany Twamley (619)244-5519 call or text
