Rosetta "Etta" McNally Henry
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Dec. 10, 1877
Drumlish
County Longford, Ireland
Death: Jun. 3, 1951
Westerville
Franklin County
Ohio, USA

Daughter of James and Bridget (Kennedy) McNally of Drumlish Ireland.
Came from Ireland and lived with her sister in New York City.
Worked at a hotel and met her husband Lawrence when they both worked in management at the hotel.
Moved to Westerville, Ohio.
The Henrys were in a minority being of the Catholic Faith and were subjected to prejudices unimaginable and unheard of in subsequent generations. One of her sons in a basketball game for Otterbein College next door had dead fish thrown at him anytime he neared the opponent's goal. Etta retained her Irish brogue and ways and these kinds of slurs and rejections served only to bind the family together.

An Old Irish Blessing
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
