Mary Beth Henn, 70, of Harding, died Monday, Oct. 9, 2017, at Celtic Hospice in Wilkes-Barre. 

Born in Wilkes-Barre, she was the daughter of the late William Nicholson and Veronica Przekop Nicholson of New York City. She was raised in Queens, N.Y., and graduated from Francis Lewis High School. After graduation, she worked as a secretary in Manhattan.

In 1967, she married her childhood sweetheart, Rudi G. Henn. After living in New York, New Jersey and southern California, the couple moved to Northeast Pennsylvania to be near family. They bought an old farm in Harding and built a life and family of their own there.

Mary Beth was a devoted stay-at-home wife and mother, volunteered with local organizations and eventually returned to work as an administrative assistant for various businesses throughout Luzerne and Lackawanna counties. She was known best as a caring, thoughtful and generous woman with a big heart and endless capacity for love and compassion.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her beloved big brother, William J. Nicholson.

She is survived by her husband; daughter, Jennifer Henn, Harding; and many other close relatives.
