Text size

Josephine J. "Joey" Hensley, 74, of Daleville went to meet her Lord and Savior on Aug. 23, 2017, at her residence after an extended illness.
Joey was born on Sept. 30, 1942, in Indianapolis and was the daughter of Harley and Madlin (Gann) Sanders. On Dec. 4, 1988, she married Paul Hensley, who preceded her in death on June 6, 2010.
Joey was a homemaker most of her life but had worked as a nurse's aide in earlier years. She was a member of Glad Tidings Assembly of God Church and New Life Christian Church, both of Anderson.
Joey wasn't only our sweet Momma, she was our friend and confidant who we could share anything. She was an amazing, loving and thoughtful mom and grandma. She made hats for the homeless people of our community and was a wonderful cook and enjoyed cooking for her family and friends.
Left to cherish her memory are children, Janice (Tom ) Naselroad, Susie (Roger) Dishman, Connie (Vaughn) Walker and Brenda (Donnie) Ely; stepdaughter, Tammy (John) Shock; stepsons, Tim (Mary) Hensley, Keith (Susie) Hensley and Jimmie Swafford; brothers, Robert (Jean) Sanders, Rusty (Alice) Sanders, Mike (Judy) Richardson and Mark (Kara) Richardson; and a sister-in-law, Drenda Sanders. Also surviving are 10 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Paul Hensley; brother, Bill Sanders; and a grandson, Joshua Dishman.
A celebration of Joey's life will be at 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 26, 2017, at Glad Tidings Assembly of God Church, 815 E. School St., Anderson, with the Rev. Matt Boldiszar, the Rev. Johnny Cawthon and Chaplin Vaughn Walker officiating.
Friends may call the church on Saturday from noon to 2 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Glad Tidings Assembly of God Church, 815 E. School St., Anderson, IN 46012 or New Life Christian Church, 2515 E. 100N, Anderson, IN 46012.
