DOLORES PHILLIPS HENRY
Agnes Dolores Bradford Phillips Henry, age 80, formerly of Cambridge, died on Friday, September 16, 2011 in Newport News, Virginia. Dolores passed quietly to live eternally in heaven with her Lord and reunite with countless loved ones.
Born Agnes Dolores Bradford, she entered this world on September 14, 1931 in Cambridge, MD, as the second child of Bertsil Brinsfield and Ruth Pauline Adkins Bradford.
As the wife of a sailor in the United States Navy, Dolores spent many years living in and around Newport News, Virginia. While there she proudly worked for the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation in Williamsburg, Virginia, where her love for history was fed. Eventually, Dolores returned home to Cambridge. She had a lifelong desire to be a nurse and she honored her calling for helping the ill by working at Dorchester General Hospital in the Emergency Department as well as working with the volunteer EMS. In time she went on to work at the American Red Cross in Easton and in the Garden center at Wal-mart in Cambridge.
From the union of a former marriage to the late Luther Preston Phillips are three children, Robert Preston Phillips (Bonnie), Patricia Eileen Dodson (George), and Bradford Clay Phillips (Janet). From those three, she was subsequently blessed with five grandchildren Jeannette M. Dodson-O’Connell (Kevin), Robert Preston Phillips, Jr. (Candy), Joy Elizabeth Dodson, George Donald Dodson, II (Kristina), and Bradford Clay Phillips, II; and was the proud great-grandmother to eight little darlings. She is also survived by an older sister Bertie Jean Pinson; many loving nephews, nieces, great-nieces, great-nephews and cousins than she could count!
Preceding her in death besides her parents was her brother-in-law Jerry Pinson; as well as all of her aunts and uncles.
She married Herman A. Henry in 1973, where she played many years of tennis and loved his children and friends.
Mrs. Henry was cremated. A Celebration of Life Service will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 24th at Grace United Methodist Church, 501 Race St., Cambridge, where the family will receive friends an hour prior to the service. Officiating at the service will be Pastor Jay Hurley. Inurnment will follow at East New Market Cemetery.
Pallbearers will be her grandchildren.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to the doctors and nurses at Mary Immaculate Hospital who helped with Dolores care as well as all the cards and phone calls from her friends, family and classmates during the short illness.
In lieu of flowers, memorials offerings may be made to Grace United Methodist Church, 501 Race St., Cambridge, MD 21613.

Posted by: Alice & Joe Tente To Robbie, Pat & Brad my heart goes out to you all in your time of loss. Aunt Delores was truly one of a kind. I could always count on her kindness when I needed it. If I was asked to remember one thing about her it would have to be her loving smile. I don't ever remember a time when one of her smiles wouldn't lift me up. It's truly hard to believe she is gone. The world feels a little colder without her warmth in it and I will miss her dearly. Love Always, Alice 09/23/2011 Posted by: Margi Prueitt Sad to hear of Dee's passing - her life was well lived and her service to others well documented as she cared about and for many in her community. 09/21/2011 Posted by: Janet (Bradford) Hunteman Bertie Jean and Families: I was shocked to read of Dolores' passing. She was a bright light on this planet. Thoughts and prayers are with each of you at this time. 09/21/2011 Posted by: Mark Tinsman I had the opportunity to work with Dee for a hand full of years during her Red Cross service. I saw Dee's commitment to her community demonstrated and her compassion for people in crisis turned into action. Dee added value to her community and blessed those whose lives she touched. Anyone who bothered to look could see Christ present in her and manifested to the world. She will be missed by many! 09/21/2011 Posted by: Edwin Lloyd To Dee's Family: I had the good fortune of being one of the Chapter Chairmans during her tenure as Chapter Manager of the Dochester County Red Cross. I can recall many times when she would do things even when there were no volunteers available, but she still got the job done. I want the family to know she was an inspiration to lot of us. 09/20/2011 Posted by: Pat and Patti Smythe Our thoughts and prayers are extended to Dee's family. Dee Henry was a valued member of our team, serving as the Administrator for our Southern Jurisdiction. Before she came to be part of our chapter team she served as the Chapter Manager of the Dorchester County Red Cross. Dee was loved and respected by all she came in contact with. She alway knew the right thing to do or say to get to the heart of the situation. You could count on Dee to brighten up your day. Dee had a Red Cross Heart that always advocated for the best interest of the clients we served. There was nothing that Dee would not do for each and every one of us. We are all better people for counting Dee as a member of our Red Cross family. 09/20/2011 Posted by: Robert Aaron I WAS VERY SAD TO HEAR OF HER PASSING. MY HEART AND PRAYERS GO OUT TO HER FAMILY. 09/19/2011 Posted by: Levin & Effie Elzey Dear Family, Delores worked for others through the Red Cross. Her service to others is what our Lord ask of each of us. May you gain strength for the day knowing that she has won her race & will receive her robe & crown. May God bless each of you with needed strength & peace. 09/17/2011
