The Farmville Herald

AYLETT, September 27 – The Rev. George G. Henley, of Aylett, departed this world to dwell in the house of the Lord on Tuesday, September 25, 2012. The second of five children, he was born on September 8, 1924, to the late Earle E. Henley Sr. and Elizabeth Haddon Henley.

The son of a Methodist minister, Mr. Henley, too, served the Va. United Methodist Church for 40 years before retiring in 1987. He was a WWII veteran, graduated from Hampden-Sydney College, and went on to Duke University where he completed Divinity School before going into the ministry.

He married Eloise Hanes of Farmville, who lost her battle with cancer in 1985. They had one son, William Erwin Henley, who survives them. Mr. Henley was married again to Urcil S. Jacobs of Farmville, who also succumbed to cancer in 2008.

His two brothers, Earle E. Henley Jr. and Robert O. Henley, who pre-deceased him, also responded to God's calling. They both served the Va. United Methodist Church for a number of years. Praise be to God for their service and dedication. Mr. Hen-ley was also pre-deceased by a sister, Elizabeth Wright.

In addition to a son, he is also survived by a sister, Lucy Drury, of Seattle, WA; sisters-in-law, Sandra Henley and Juanita Basham; and eleven nieces and nephews.
