Henry; a son, Jamie (Leah) McWhorter of Wellston; a step-son, Jason Henry of Wellston; a daughter, Amie (Kent) Channell of Wellston; a step-daughter, Patty (Josh) Black of Wellston; a brother, Billy (Lynn) Starkey of Jackson; mother-in-law, Connie Henry of Wellston; six grandchildren: Lyndsey and Michael Channell, Keaton and Kamdon Black, and Jasmine and Jade McWhorter; also several nieces and nephews.

The family will receive friends on Wednesday from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Jenkins Funeral Chapel in Wellston. Cremation will follow the visitation.

The family suggests that memorial contributions in Brenda’s name be sent to Lifeline of Ohio, 770 Kinnear Road, Suite 200, Columbus, Ohio 43212. Online condolences may be made at
