Rhoda E. Henson

November 29, 1936 — March 6, 2022

Rhoda E. Henson, 85, of Winona, MN, died on Sunday, March 6, 2022, in Gundersen-Lutheran Medical Center-La Crosse. She was born in Minden, NE, on November 29, 1936, to John and Josephine Garvin. She married Robert Henson on November 20, 1955, in Hastings, NE, and they later divorced.

Rhoda’s greatest joy was spending time with her family and friends in Nebraska. She was an avid Green Bay Packer fan, buck euchre card player and loved casino outings.

She is survived by her children; Marcia Goulet, Janet (Clyde) Abts, Debbie (Mike) Kensmoe, Kathy (Randy) Henson-Schroeder, and Stanley (Jeanne) Henson, 10 grandchildren, and 13 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by two brothers, Gene (Barb) Garvin and Jerry (Sharon) Garvin.

She was preceded in death by her daughter Linda; granddaughter Natasha; brother Jerry Garvin; parents John and Josephine Garvin; sister-in-law Barb and step-brother Bill.

We will always treasure your beautiful smile, your spunk, wittiness and your sweet nature. You will be missed dearly by family and friends. Mom/grandma – your love and strength inspired us to be who we are today. You will be in our hearts forever.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date with family and friends.
