Barbara Ann Henning, 75 of Harbor Spring and formerly of Saginaw, died peacefully on November 29, 2017 at her home surrounded by family.

Barbara was born on October 25, 1942 in Saginaw, MI, the daughter of Christopher and Marion (Bourbonnais) Sheedy and was raised in Saginaw.   She graduated from Arthur Hill High School with the Class of 1960, attended Delta College and Central Michigan University, and later went on to work as an Office Assistant at a neurosurgeon’s office in Saginaw.

On July 7, 1969 Barbara married David Henning in Saginaw, and the two made their home in the Saginaw/Midland area and later Rochester Hills.   Upon retirement in 2002 the two moved to Harbor Springs.

Barbara was a member of the Harbor Springs Garden Club, Questers, and Holy Childhood of Jesus Church.  She enjoyed traveling, going out on their boat, collecting dolls, and loved her flower gardens.  Her true love was her family, especially her children and grandchildren whom she loved to care for and visit.  Her whole life centered around her family and she cherished her time with them.   She always cared and was worried more about them then herself and did her best to build others up to their highest potential.  She will be greatly missed by all those who loved and knew her.

Barbara is survived by her husband of 48 years, David; 4 children, Stephen (Amy) Henning of Novi, Kimberly (Eric) Hayhurst of Harbor Springs, Michael (Susan) Henning of Macomb, and Christopher (Wendi) Henning of Royal Oak; 9 grandchildren, Abigail, Rebecca, Emma, Claire, Alexandria, Grace, David, Eli, and Finnley; 4 nieces, Lisa, Kelly, Renee, and Katy; and nephew, Peter.

She was preceded in death by her parents and by a sister, Elizabeth Turner.

The family will receive friends on Monday, December 4th from 5-8pm at the Stone Funeral Home with a Vigil Service being held at the funeral home at 7:00pm.  A funeral Mass will be held on Tuesday, December 5th at 11:00am at Holy Childhood of Jesus Church in Harbor Springs.  Interment will be in the Holy Childhood Cemetery.

Those wishing to remember Barbara through a charitable contribution are asked to consider Holy Childhood of Jesus Church or Hospice of the Straits.
