In memoriam: Tammy Henry, Virginia Cooperative Extension administrative assistant
Tammy Henry, an administrative assistant in the Warren County Cooperative Extension office, passed away on Jan. 3, 2022.
A graduate of Warren County High School, Henry spent time working for Virginia Cooperative Extension in a variety of capacities before assuming her current role in 2001. Henry was a member of the Northwest District Extension Secretaries and Technician’s Association.
Prior to joining the Warren County Cooperative Extension Office, Henry had a career with the Northern Virginia 4-H Center for more than a decade, solidifying her deep belief in the 4-H program.
“Tammy was a true team player and her support was vital to the success of the staff at Warren County Cooperative Extension,” said Corey Childs, Henry’s supervisor for more than 20 years. “In the office, her quick wit and smile will make her impossible to forget.
“The best way to sum it up is that Tammy embodied Ut Prosim (That I May Serve) every day she walked into the Extension office,” Childs said.
Henry is survived by her husband of 34 years, Donald Henry; son, Bobby Henry (Betty Jo); brother, Gary Thompson; sister, Ella Thompson; her beloved grandchildren, Gracie Henry and Maddie Henry; and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.
