Henrietta gave her life to the Lord in Nov. 1965 and was baptized by Bro. Mack Walker at Sycamore Baptist church in 1967. She has been faithful to the Lord through the years by teaching Sunday school classes, leading Women’s Conferences, singing with the Louisiana Baptist women’s choir, and recently starting a “Widows Worth” program at Riverside Baptist Church. Henrietta was a great prayer warrior! She prayed daily for so many people. Once a person’s name was written in her prayer book, she never stopped praying for them. She loved her husband and four children. She was always there for her family. She would spend so much time with her children playing cards, jacks, dominoes, and Yahtzee, but she especially loved to play “Rook.”

Her favorite color was yellow and has requested that everyone wear yellow to her funeral and no crying! She wants a celebration!

She is reunited with the love of her life, Albert Garfield Braswell, Sr.; parents, Frank Kircher and Myrtle Rambo Kircher Marlette; grandson, Austin Scott; great-granddaughters, Hannah Elizabeth Nugent and Olivia Davis; twin great-grandchildren; and siblings, Alice ” Fritzie” Young, and Jackie Gardner.
