CHADWICK – Henrietta Maring, 93, formerly of Chadwick, died Wednesday, July 23, 2014, at Prairie Estates Nursing Home in Frisco, Texas.

Henrietta was born Feb. 16, 1921, in Fulton, the daughter of Jerry and Grace Sikkema. She was one of seven children, who included three brothers and four sisters. She attended Thomson schools, and in 1939, graduated from Thomson High School.

In January 1942, she married Neal Maring. They lived on their farm for more than 60 years in Carroll County, near Chadwick, before moving to Frisco to live with her daughter, Lana (Robert) Richardson. Neal and Henrietta were married for 64 years before he passed away in 2006.

Henrietta and Neal were members of Fairhaven United Methodist Church, and Oakville Country Club, where they enjoyed many years of golfing. She also enjoyed fishing with Neal on the Mississippi River, and traveling in their motor home to fish in Wisconsin and Canada. She was an avid bowler, and loved all sorts of crafts and quilting. After retiring from farming, they spent 26 winters in the Rio Grande Valley in Alamo, Texas.

Survivors include her son, Jerry (Jane ) Maring of Sycamore; her daughter, Lana (Robert) Richardson of Frisco; three grandchildren, Randy (Christy) Richardson of Oronogo, Missouri, Tamara (Dan) Redington of Frisco, and Brent (Stacy) Maring of Crystal Lake; 10 great-grandchildren: Russel, Carter, and Coralyn Richardson, Justin, Connor, Kyle, Marissa, and Cole Redington, and Luke and Brady Maring; her sisters, Arlene Eissens of Thomson, and Pauline Kitteringham of Clinton, Iowa; and a brother, Russell (Darlene) Sikkema of Fulton.

Henrietta also was preceded in death by her parents; one sister, Renette; and two brothers, Gaylord and Allen.
