Hen­ri­etta S. Smoke Winchel

The Saline Courier - - OBITUARIES -

Hen­ri­etta S. Smoke Winchel, most knew her as “Henri” or “Meme,” 70, went to be with her Lord and Sav­ior on Fri­day, May 3, sur­rounded by her loved ones at her res­i­dence in Glen Rose. She was born Dec. 22, 1948, in Mag­net Cove, to the late Johnny and Ruby Mcdou­gal Smoke.

Other than her par­ents, she was pre­ceded in death by her first hus­band, Den­nis Golden; and a sis­ter, Oweta Rubly Primm.

She is sur­vived by her hus­band and love of her life of 45 years, Rus­sell Winchel,; three chil­dren, Chris and Jessi Winchel, and Misty Winchel White; four beloved grand­chil­dre,n Kar­lee and Kar­son White, Dustin Green and Bri­anna Olvera Grif­fin; and many other fam­ily mem­bers and friends that she called her very own.

She grad­u­ated from Mag­net Cove High School in 1966 and was a faith­ful child of God and mem­ber of Glen Rose Mis­sion­ary Bap­tist Church. She was a lov­ing wife, home­maker, mother, grand­mother “Meme,” and com­pas­sion­ate care­taker of many. She lived up to the mean­ing of her name as she was a vi­brant and creative soul with a pow­er­ful per­son­al­ity al­ways go­ing out of her way to help and care for oth­ers, the ruler of her house­hold and the keeper of many hearts.

With a heart of pure gold and warmth, she was the true re­flec­tion of God’s nur­tur­ing and un­con­di­tional love. Many fam­ily and friends reaped the ben­e­fits of her la­bor of love as she cared for all, spoke words of con­so­la­tion to those who were heart­bro­ken and poured out her un­con­di­tional love from the heart that never gave up on any­one (Matthew 23:37).

Fu­neral ser­vice will be held at 12:30 p.m. Sun­day, May

19, with a com­mu­ni­ty­wide visi­ta­tion potluck fol­low­ing at 2 p.m., all at Glen Rose Mis­sion­ary Bap­tist Church-fel­low­ship Hall. A cel­e­bra­tion of life me­mo­rial ser­vice will be held at the church’s sanc­tu­ary.
