Today (May 31) is their 50th wedding anniversary. They were married May 31, 1958 in Martinsburg, Pa., with the Revs. Richard Grant and R. Wayne Snider officiating.
The couple have two children. Michelle (and spouse Bill) Heffelfinger, Granger, Indiana; and Monica (and spouse David) Wayne, Warsaw, Indiana. They have four grandchildren.
This month also marks the Henrys’ 50th anniversary year of graduating from Grace College. In this photo from the Grace alumni department, they were among the “Golden Class” honored at recent commencement exercises at Grace College and Seminary.
And finally, Ron retires this summer after 50 years of continuous service to Grace College in a number of roles as history professor and academic administrator. Willa earlier retired after 41 years as an elementary school teacher in the Warsaw, Indiana, Community School system.
The Henrys are active in Winona Lake Grace Brethren Church (Bruce Barlow, lead pastor). They plan to celebrate with upcoming trips to Door County, Wisconsin, and to Spain later this fall.
