The Telegram Obituaries



HENNEBURY, Mrs. Alex (Jennie Louise)
The Telegram Saturday, January 16, 1937

With quiet calm and repose a young life came to a close in the early hours of this morning when Mrs. Alex Hennebury passed across the Great Divide. Deceased was formerly Miss Jennie Louise Andrews, one of a well known and loyal family. Her brother, John, whose sad passing we recorded last year, went overseas with the First Five Hundred; another brother, Harold, who is now living in England, was at Gallipoli and was a prisoner of war in Germany for eighteen months; her husband, Alex, was also a "Blue Puttee," and won the Military Medal while serving in France: her brother-in-law, Walter J. Bursey, was severely wounded while on active service with "Ours", and another, John McBay was also with the Royal Nfld. Regiment.
Mrs. Hennebury sustained a protracted illness. For the past few years she had been ailing, but suffered this long disability with great fortitude and resignation. The end came, not unexpectedly but found her waiting and ready. To her husband, four children, mother, two sisters, Mrs. W. J. Bursey and Mrs. Jack McBay; brothers Harold and George, and other relatives, we tender sincere sympathy. The funeral will take place on Monday afternoon at 2:30 from her late residence, 100 Freshwater Road, and it is anticipated that a large number of citizens and ex-servicemen will attend to pay their last tribute of respect to a loyal wife, a quiet unassuming friend and the type of Newfoundland womanhood which, alas, is passing all too quickly.
