Obituary of Eunice Mildred Henneberry


Eunice Mildred Henneberry of Sambro passed away peacefully at home at the age of 104. She was the first born to the late Charles and Emma Gilkie. She is survived by her children, Norma Lacoursiere, Ron (Jean), Russ (Glenda), Barb Poole and Betty Henneberry; eight grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.  She was predeceased by her husband, Norman, sisters, Elsie and Laura, brothers, Fred and Charlie, sons-in-law, Don Poole and Roger Lacoursiere.

Mom was born December 10,1916 in Sambro. It was important to her to live her final days in her home, and thanks to her youngest daughter Betty, she did.

Mom was strong and hard-working lady who lived through war, depression and a pandemic! She was a wealth of knowledge for community history, and was happy to share it. Mom was very independent; she took pride in her work in the home.  She was known for her home-made buns, which the family looked forward to on any occasion. She loved working in her flower garden, and continued mowing well into her nineties! Mom was an avid knitter and incredibly generous with her talents. She loved playing cards with family.

We learned many lessons from Mom, most notably, never put off to tomorrow what you can do today. Work to do the right thing, even though it is hard, and take pride in what you contribute to the world.

A graveside service will be held on August 10, 2021 at 1:00pm at St. James’ Cemetery in Sambro.
