Henrietta Burden

July 12 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Her final resting place was Kindred Hospital of New Jersey.

Her children survive Henrietta: Harriet H. Hamilton (Newburgh), Terry J. Burden (Newburgh), Tamika R. Bryant (Newburgh)-grandchildren and great-grandchildren – her nephew Alfred L. Burden (Newburgh), and her long-time companion, Thomas Bryant (Fitzgerald, GA).

She is preceded in death by Ardie Burden (her mother), Mac Burden (her father), Nathaniel Burden and Stephanie Jackson (her children), Tiffany Lasane, Kevin Burden, Terry J. Burden, and Calvin Burden (her grandchildren), and great-grandson Jaxson Hardgrove.

Special people in her life outside of her family included Catherine Rose, Leslie Smith-Burch, and Tamika Jackson, who was like a niece to her.

Although Henrietta was born in Fitzgerald, GA, she grew up in Newburgh and attended Newburgh Free
Academy. She worked as a nurse’s aide and home health aide. She was a professional caregiver who
took care of family members.

Henrietta enjoyed spending time with family and friends, playing bingo, and dancing. She was also an
excellent cook, with her specialty being a favorite crock pot Stew. Her favorite snacks were Lorna
Doones and she often sent her son Terry to the store to purchase them. She even got the nurse at the
facility where she resided to purchase Lorna Doones.

If you knew her, then you knew one of her favorite phrases was “child, please!” When family members
visited, as they were getting ready to leave, she would send them off with a “God bless you!” Henrietta’s
favorite songs were “Jesus I Love Calling Your Name” by Shirley Caesar and “I’ll Be Ready” by Yolanda

Henrietta will be missed by family and friends. Her final resting place will be at Cedar Hill Cemetery.
Pallbearers: Nashon Burden, Adrian Hargrove, Deandre Connors, and Mark Mallory (grandchildren)
