Mildred Agnes Coyle Henry
1911 ~ 2017

Mildred Agnes (Coyle) Henry, 96, passed away peacefully and surrounded by her loving family on November 4, 2017 in Highland, Utah.

She was born on May 13, 1921 in Los Angeles?, California to Grover Pascal Coyle and Martha Josephine Hammer.

Mildred first met the love of her life, Robert Mathers Henry, in middle school. He sat behind her in the eighth grade, where she remembered him being a “pest.” But it wasn’t long before they became sweethearts during their years at Manual Arts High School, going out dancing on Friday nights and ending each evening with french fries and a hot fudge sundae. They were married on November 28, 1941 in Los Angeles. They remained sweethearts throughout their 73 years of working, camping, sailing and traveling together. They were sealed for time and all eternity in the Los Angeles LDS Temple on December 16, 1978. “I always knew Grandpa was the man I wanted to spend the rest of my life with,” she told her grandchildren.

Mildred and Bob had five children, Tom, Chuck, Terry, Chris and Robbie. She remembered each of their births as the happiest moments in her life. Mildred and Bob also helped raise hundreds of children during their 21 years as stewards of the Optimist Home for Boys in Los Angeles and then at the Masonic Home for Children in Covina, California.

Mildred worked as a teacher and consultant, but her starring role in life was as “Grandma” to 18 grandchildren and “Big Grandma” to 35 great-grandchildren. Her heart was full of unconditional love for them, and her devotion to and belief in them was boundless. Her grandchildren will always be grateful for the time their grandparents spent with them, with fond memories of long days on the beach in San Diego, California and “cousins camp” in the summer at their house on Snow Pond in Maine.

Mildred was an exuberant spirit, with a ready smile, youthful vigor and an absolute capacity for making people feel truly loved. She was a lifelong member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Her strong faith in God and testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ helped sustain her throughout her 96 years.

She is survived by her five children, Thomas M. Henry, Charles (Kay), Terry (Stella), Christopher (Delonnie) and Roberta (Bill) Lawler, and her 18 grandchildren and 35 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her brothers, Glenn and Bob, and her husband, Bob, who passed away on October 7, 2014.

A viewing will be held Saturday, November 11 from 8:30 to 9:30 am, with funeral services following at 10:00am at the Fort Canyon LDS Chapel, 890 North Heritage Hills Drive, Alpine. Interment will follow at the Highland City Cemetery.

Mildred is now reunited with her sweetheart, Bob. Their spirit will live on in the hearts, smiles and laughter of the many children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren they helped bring into the world.
