MENDENHALL -- Henry Mendenhall passed away Tuesday, March 14, 2006. Henry, you were an artist, a musician, a storyteller, and an avid photographer and lover of nature whose constant humor and clever wit will never be forgotten. Your loving family and many friends are better people for having been a part of your life. Although born in Philadelphia, PA in 1911, New Mexico was your heart-felt home. You married Katherine Miller at "the little church around the corner" in NYC in 1945 and then returned to NM to celebrate 61 wonderful years together. Your children inherited your optimism and joy in living and are also storytellers... of their many adventures with you while growing up. For 94 years your mind and hands were never idle. Henry, your family and friends love you and will forever miss you. The celebration of your life continues. French Mortuary 1111 University Blvd. NE 843-6333

Now they are one again in God's home as someday we all will be.

God please take care of our parents. They will be dearly missed and our love for them will never diminish. Our prayers and love for them will remain constant in our lives everyday.
