Obituary

Contributor: dayle Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Gerald Henrie Our dear husband, father, grandfather, Gerald Henrie, 87, passed peacefully away in his sleep at his home in Orem, surrounded by his loved ones, December 25, 1990. We feel so blessed that his last Christmas gift to his family was to go quietly in peace and join his little daughter Franny, who preceded him in death, and also be reunited with his parents and other dear loved ones. He had a long, rich, and fulfilling life. He was born June 29, 1903, in Manti, Utah to Samuel and Elizabeth Boyington Henrie. He married Laura Tucker in the Manti LDS Temple, July 25, 1933. He attended school in Manti, Utah and graduated from Manti High School in 1923. He also graduated from Snow College and attended Utah State University and Brigham Young University. He enjoyed sports and especially loved baseball. In his younger days he played baseball for the Manti City Baseball team. He also loved to write and was also interested in current events. Our beloved husband and father was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, holding the office of High Priest. He served a mission in the Manti LDS Temple and then continued on thereafter, being employed there for 12 years as a recorder. He taught Junior Genealogy classes and was active in MIA. He was a Scoutmaster, earning his Eagle Scout Award along with several of his scouts in 1920. He served as a home teacher for 60 years and also worked many years in PTA at Timpanogos and Dixon Junior High Schools in Provo. He was employed at both Geneva Mill during its construction and Utah Vocational School in Provo. He was owner and operator of apartments in Provo for 48 years. These apartments were later torn down and a new Smith's Food King erected in their place. He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Laura Tucker Henrie of Orem. He was the loving and devoted father of Norma Henrie, Orem; Mrs. Louis (Jeraldeen) Simpson, Orem; George Ray Henrie, Idaho Falls, Idaho; Mrs. Phillip (Merilyn) Olsen, Bountiful; He was loved and adored as grandfather to 13 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren, and 2 great-great-grandchildren. We would like to invite friends and family to funeral services at the Walker Mortuary, 85 E. 300 S., Provo, December 28 at 11 a.m. The viewing will be Thursday, December 27 from 6 to 8 p.m. and one hour prior to services. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of those who have lovingly been at our loved one's side and helped him in so many ways these past few weeks and months. He felt your love. Grandpa Henrie will be greatly missed by us all, but he will live in our hearts forever. Burial in the Provo City Cemetery.

Life timeline of Gerald Henrie

1903
Gerald Henrie was born on 29 Jun 1903
Gerald Henrie was 14 years old when Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was forced to abdicate in the February Revolution, ending three centuries of Romanov rule. Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.
Gerald Henrie was 17 years old when The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified, guaranteeing women's suffrage in America. The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits the states and the federal government from denying the right to vote to citizens of the United States on the basis of sex. It was adopted on August 18, 1920.
Gerald Henrie was 36 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
