Sherry Lynn Young Henry, beloved wife of Norman Cooke Henry and treasured twin sister of Terry Wynn Young Meek, passed from this life on Friday, Feb. 14, 2020, at her home in Grenada.
Sherry was born on Oct. 12, 1948, in Morgan City, La., to James Newsom Young and Grace Johnson Young. She was an identical twin, a relationship that she and her twin Terry felt blessed by their entire lives.
Sherry spent most of her early life in Jackson, Miss., where she graduated from Provine High School in 1966. She then attended Mississippi University for Women before getting her degree in French with a minor in Spanish from Mississippi State University. She worked as a French and Spanish teacher at the high school level in Mississippi, Georgia, South Carolina, and Alabama. Throughout her teaching career, she sponsored student trips to Europe during many school breaks, thanks to her deep love for traveling and seeing the world. Sherry and her husband Norman, who were married for over 40 years, also loved to travel, nationally and internationally, with Ireland being their favorite place to visit.
Sherry was preceded in death by her parents and a younger sister, Evelyn Young Carroon.
Sherry is survived by a large family. Her daughter Kara Vega, lives in Richmond, Va., her son Christopher Klinck (Amanda) and his family live in Grenada, and Paige Henry Brown (Steve) of Huntsville, Ark. She was a doting grandmother to eight grandchildren: Alexia (Lexi) Axelsen, Lizi Axelsen, Anabela Vega, Ethan Klinck, Drew Klinck, Mary Grace Klinck, Alex Brown, and Matthew Brown. She is also survived by her twin sister Terry Meek (Carlysle) of Merigold, and an older sister, Linda Powell (Dan) of Flowood.
Sherry also had many dear friends who loved and prayerfully supported her over the years, especially during the last nine months she spent fighting both lung and heart disease. She was a devout Christian her whole life and took great comfort in her faith and in the prayers of all her family and friends.
