ELENORA K. “NOMIE” MCHENRY [Keyser, W.Va.]

KEYSER, W.Va. — Elenora K. “Nomie” McHenry, 96, of Keyser, passed away on Wednesday, April 24, 2013, at the Western Maryland Regional Medical Center, Cumberland.

Born on Feb. 14, 1917, in Keyser, she was a daughter of the late William B. and Regina M. (Dorsey) Kady. She was the last surviving member of her immediate family. She was also preceded in death by her husband, James L. McHenry, in June 2003; one sister, Regina Sidley and two brothers, William M. Kady Jr. and wife Thelma and Joseph J. Kady and wife Mary Pat.   

Nomie was educated in Martinsburg at St. Joseph's Catholic School. After her post-graduate education, she joined the work force of the B&O Railroad at Martinsburg. Following World War II, she left Martinsburg and returned to Keyser and continued to work for the B&O and Chessie System Railroad, where she retired as Billing Clerk and Weigh Master from the Cumberland office with 35 years of service.

Mrs. McHenry was a member of the Church of the Assumption Catholic Church, Ladies Guild and Women of the Moose Chapter 191. She loved to dance and playing Bingo.

She leaves behind a niece, Mary Jo Kady Demme; a nephew, Patrick Kady and wife Annette, both of California and many cousins being Kadys and Dorseys.  

At her request, her body will be cremated and there will be no visitations.  

A Memorial Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated in the Church of the Assumption, 34 James St., Keyser, on Monday, April 29, 2013, at 10:30 a.m. with Father Ivan M. Lebar, T.O.R. as celebrant. The family will receive friends at the church one hour prior to the Mass.

Inurnment will follow in St. Thomas Catholic Cemetery, Keyser, W.Va.

We all feel her loss very deeply, but some small measure of consolation may be found in the words of the poet Walt Whitman: “She is not gone. She is just away with a cherry smile and the wave of the hand. She has wandered into an unknown land and left us wondering how very fair that land may be since she tarries there.”

Memorial donations may be made to Assumption Church, 34 James St., Keyser, WV 26726.

Condolences may be sent to the family after Mrs. McHenry's obituary at www.markwoodfuneralhome.com.
