Obituary

Dorothy “Dottie” Henry, 92, of Dubuque died Saturday, December 28, 2019 at Sunnycrest Manor with family by her side. A memorial service will be held at 10:30 a.m. Friday, January 10, 2020 at the Egelhof, Siegert and Casper Funeral Home and Crematory where visitation will be held Thursday, January 9 from 3 to 7 pm and Friday, January 10 from 9 to 10:15 a.m.
Dottie was born October 25, 1927 in Dubuque, daughter of Emmett and Lucille (May) McGovern. After graduating from Dubuque Senior High School, she worked at “The Telephone Company” in Dubuque.
She married Wilfred Joseph Wieser and had nine children together. She was a mother and homemaker for many years.
She later worked at John Deere for seven years.
In March of 1975, she married Lyle Francis Henry. He preceded her in death on January 28, 2012.
Dottie enjoyed reading, horseback riding, bowling, bingo, and talking (arguing) politics with whoever would dare! She was also an avid card player. She was a longtime member of the Tri-State Saddle Club and the Dubuque Women’s Bowling Association.
She is survived by five daughters, Sue (Lonnie) Cox of Canadian, TX, Deb (Rick) Henry of Carroll, IA, Linda (Joe) Gammon of Sante Fe, NM, Jan (Dennis) Dodson of Poolville, TX, and Sally Culbertson of North Carolina; three sons, Jeff (Joan) Wieser of White Bear Lake, MN, Jay (Carla) Wieser of Dubuque and Scott Wieser of Iowa City, IA; stepchildren, Linda Droessler of New York, Rod (Nancy) Henry of Dubuque, Sue (Charlie) Ruff of Dubuque, Joe (Tammy) Henry of Dubuque, Mark Henry of Dubuque, and Patty (Barry) Walen of Dubuque.
She is also survived by her sister, Cheryl (Bob) McGovern of Verona, WI; brother, Pat (Joan) McGovern of Berlin, MD and many grandchildren, great and great-great grandchildren; many other relatives and a special friend, Clarence “CJ” Adams of Dubquue.
She was also preceded in death by her parents; her former husband, Wilfed Wieser; son, Gerald Wieser; stepson, Scott Henry; grandson, Jed R. Henry; and brothers, Robert, Louis “Bill” and Shirley, and Fr. Gerald McGovern.
The family wishes to extend a special thanks to Sunnycrest Manor for the excellent care she received by the staff; also to the Hospice of Dubuque for the comforting help given Dottie while finishing her journey on this earth.

Thank you Uncle Pat and Aunt Joan. We missed you. It would have been wonderful to see both of you. We had good visits with family, friends, and old acquaintances that some of us hadn't seen for a long time. Love to you both. Jan.

I was privileged with making Dottie her favorite over easy eggs every morning for breakfast during her time at Sunnycrest. She always had a smile on her face in the early morning. My condolences go out to the Henry family, especially Joe and Patty.

Hi Sheila, this is Jan, Dottie's daughter in Texas. She told me how happy she was to get her eggs every day! Thank you.

I didn't find a way to caption a picture. So, in the B&W shot from 1929-30 Emmett is holding Dottie, Bob has his finger in his mouth and Bill his finger in his nose. Lucy is the other girl.

I have never seen a picture of Grandma Lucy and Grandpa Emmett at such a young age! I love this and thank you for posting it. Is there a balloon in Grandpa's other hand?
