Obituary for Dorothy J. Henry

Saratoga Springs / Hague. Dorothy J. (Dottie) Henry, 97, passed away on February 10, 2018 in Saratoga Springs.

Born, December 25, 1920, in Chambersburg, PA, she grew up in Hagerstown, MD.

She served in the Women’s Army Corps (WACs) during WWII, during which time she met and married Jack Henry of Brooklyn and Hague, NY. The couple settled in Hague in 1946, beginning what would become Dottie’s life-long love affair with Hague.

Dottie will be remembered for her energy and enthusiasm for life, her dimpled smile and her service to Hague over the course of more than five decades. When her children were young, she focused her efforts on activities that benefited the children and youth of Hague, including working with friends to bring library books to Hague and helping to start a Brownie and Girl Scout troop as well as the Hague Little League. The family moved to northern Virginia in the 1960s, returning every summer. In 1974, Dottie and Jack moved back to Hague full-time, and Dottie once again became an active member of the community. She served on the Hague Town Board as well as on numerous town advisory committees covering areas such as tourism, sewer, planning and zoning, the town park and festivals. She was an active member of the Hague Historical Society, the Rotary Club, Seniors Club, Hague Baptist Church, Hague Post 1538 American Legion, Carillon Garden Club, New Horizons Literary Club, Ticonderoga Festival Guild and Champlain Valley Chorale. Dottie never passed up an opportunity to help others – volunteering in the Physical Therapy Department of Moses Ludington Hospital and as a mentor in the Ticonderoga schools.

But it is not just in death that we honor her. During her life, Dottie won many awards, including being the first recipient of the Hague Chamber of Commerce Senior of the Year for 1990. In 1991, she was honored by the Warren County Council of Senior Citizens for “special service to her community” and in 2002 she was selected as a Woman of Distinction by the Adirondack Council of the Girl Scouts in 2002. In that same year, she was honored by the Town of Hague and The Hague Chronicle with a “Salute to the Life of Dorothy Henry” dinner. One of her most important contributions to Hague was as the long-time volunteer editor and publisher of The Hague Chronicle, which has awarded a scholarship in her name every year since 2007 to a Hague student graduating from Ticonderoga High School.

Dottie is survived by her three children, John (Puerto Rico), Ginger (Hague) and Ed (Wyoming) as well as eight grandchildren, ten great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband John T. (Jack) Henry and her two sisters, Betty and Peggy.

A Memorial Service will take place on Saturday, June 9, 2018, at 11 a.m. at the Valley View Cemetery Chapel of Ticonderoga.
