As a child of Christ, she aligned herself with women who loved Jesus Christ, like the organization of “Sisters Coming Together”. In later years, she joined Mt. Sinai Baptist Church and was in Martha's Circle until her health began to fail. Her employment with DeWitty Center and Austin Urban League centered around service and helping others. Henrietta was a woman of taste and loved to shop everything from HSN to Dillard's to J.Renee shoes and Donna Vinci hats. She was a prayer warrior and enjoyed talking to others to get their view point on life. She was a particularly good cook.
