In Loving Memory of
1936 – 2022
It is with deep sadness we announce that, after a very brief illness, Maxine Henry passed away on the evening of August 19, 2022, courageously and peacefully, with her family by her side.
Survived by her husband of 58 years, Roy Henry, daughter Kathi Leacock (Eugene Harley), granddaughter Megan Leacock, and brother Dale (Sandy) Rix, and many beloved extended family members.
Maxine moved to the bright lights of Kamloops from Adams Lake when she was a young adult and started her first job at the Bank of Montreal in 1955 when she was just 19 years old. She was a dedicated employee who loved what she did, and it turned out that would be her only job in her lifetime. Over the years, Maxine’s co-workers and customers became like family, she held them near and dear to her heart and she derived great joy from those relationships. She retired from the Bank in 2014, after almost 60 years of outstanding service.
Maxine was an equally devoted and loving wife and mother, never giving less than 100% in caring for her family and maintaining the household while working full-time, making it look easy in an era when it was anything but.
She loved music, playing piano, and dancing. She was known for her impeccable style, her endless smile, and bright blue eyes.
“And though she be but little, she is fierce”
A Celebration of Life to be held as soon as possible, notice will be published.
If desired, in lieu of flowers donations in Maxine’s name can be made to The Mustard Seed in Kamloops.
