Obituary for Barbara Lee Henry

Barbara Henry, 65, of Milford, NH passed away peacefully Tuesday April 5, 2022, at Lahey Hospital and Medical Center.
Barbara was born September 25, 1956, in Kingston, NY to the late Warren and Dorothy (Muller) Henry.

She was a graduate of Kingston High School, and the Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences where she earned her B.S. in Pharmacy. Most of Barb’s working career was at Health Alliance Hospital (Kingston Hospital) as a clinical pharmacist. Barb was committed to making sure her ‘patients’ pharmaceutical needs were delivered in the most effective way. She was available to the physicians and nursing staff if they had questions and fearlessly interjected her expertise to ensure the patients best interests were met, she was a member of Who’s Who for high school and college, and was a board member for the Ulster County Council of Girl Scouts Inc.

Barbara had a passion for sports, lettering in softball, basketball, and volleyball in HS. She loved to golf, fish, both traditional and fly, there wasn’t a sport she didn’t follow and watch on TV though soccer was her favorite. Barb loved to sing and as a child sang with her sisters in 3-part harmony just to make a joyful noise.

Barb had a wonderful sense of adventure and in her 20’s took the opportunity to work abroad as a pharmacist in a newly built hospital in Saudi Arabia. She loved learning about a completely different culture and made long lasting friendships with people from all over the globe. Barb had a passion for travel and new adventures and was always researching the next place to go in order to have some new dream to achieve. In addition to Saudi, she traveled to Egypt, Cyprus, Europe, Greece, Norway and Russia. She also saw as much of the US as possible. She was planning her next trip even as her health began to fail believing that she had a least one more trip in her.

Barb had Lupus, a lifelong affliction that was a constant challenge causing illness at any and all times. Despite this she managed to continue to find the joy in life and did not let it keep her down. She never realized what an inspiration she was to her sisters and to the people around her as she would persevere through the constant fatigue and pain. The last few years were hard for her, but she rarely complained, instead focusing on her beloved cat Gracie, and her next big adventure with her sister Beth and brother -in-law Lee. Barb took care of her mother in the last years of her life, even as she had to care for her own health issues. They were a true team together. Barbara passed on the anniversary of her mother’s death, and it is with certainty that she came to guide Barbara home to a place that her soul can truly be free.
Barb is survived by her sisters, Beth Harper and brother-in-law Lee Harper, of Hollis, NH and Jane Henry-Bevilacqua and sister-in-law, Dawn Henry-Bevilacqua, of Argyle, NY. She is also survived by her cherished godchildren, their siblings and so many others that there isn’t room to mention.
