Folsom Funeral Service

Henry, Jean L.

Jean Lucille Adams Henry, 73, of Malden, MA, passed away peacefully on May 20, 2020, from complications due to COVID-19. Jean was born on November 27, 1946 in Berbice, Guyana, the daughter of the late Wilfred Nathaniel Adams and Beryl Lenora Adams. She was the beloved mother of Nickey Henry, Audrey Taxter, and Denise Honoroff, and the dear sister of Jewel, Ralph, Lynette “Judy”, Jemmie, Eon, Yvonne “Dolly”, Ingrid, and Wendy. Judy, her identical twin sister, lovingly called her “Jeanie.” Lucas, Chelsea, Isaiah, Joel, and Nina, her five cherished grandchildren, will miss their Granny. Jean was adored by her partner Isaac, and she was the loving Auntie to many nieces and nephews. Jean found joy and peace in cooking delicious meals for her family, taking care of her home and garden, and listening to music. Beautiful, warm, funny, and generous, Jean’s quiet spirit will be forever missed by all who cooked with her, laughed with her, gardened with her, danced with her, and were blessed to be a part of her life. Expressions of love for Jean can be made by planting something beautiful in your own garden. In lieu of flowers or gifts, the family asks that donations be made to Hebrew SeniorLife to support the dedicated healthcare workers in the Memory Unit who lovingly cared for Jean. Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, services will be held privately for the immediate family at the Folsom Funeral Home in Roslindale.

    Nickey, Audrey and Denise we are so sorry to hear about the loss of your mom. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. I have so many fond memories of Lucille I will never forget her radiant smile, that smile would light up a room.

    You are at peace with many loved ones gathered to greet you. Death leaves a memory no one can heal, love leaves a memory on one can steal.

    To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Rest in heavenly peace cousin.

    Ashton, Faye and Kayla Rogers

    I worked with Jean many years ago at Imaging Technology. She was a very lovely and gracious lady. I still have a beautiful basket she gave me from Guyana and over the years thought how kind she was to gift it to me. My sincere condolences to the family on you loss.
