Ireland Claire Henry

November 5, 2010 - July 22, 2018

Ireland ran to Jesus on July 22, 2018. Ireland touched so many lives and brought so much joy in her short time on earth. She loved her family and brought joy and laughter and happiness to our lives. She always said she was “the mom” to her younger brother and sister, and now they are reunited once again. Ireland loved her Bippy and Papa and her Nonni and Papaw so much. She loved being at church and singing her heart out to Jesus. She was mommy and daddy’s special little girl.

She is also survived by her great-grandparents, Maggie Allison, Sue Floyd and Eva Mae Stanley aunts and uncles: Dan and Fawn Henry, Mattie and Mac Jenkins, Joshua and Emily Hicks; cousins: Holly Hicks, Marshall Henry, Bella Jenkins, Harper Hicks, and Kinley Jenkins. Special mentions, Caroline Fields, Angie Fields, Brent Jones and their dog Rowdy.
She is preceded in death by her great grandparents: Russell Allison, Carl, and Mattie Henry. She is also preceded in death by her uncle Buster Henry; and great-grandfathers Vernon Floyd, Gene Tarvin, and Kenneth Townsend.
