Teenia lived her life full of grace and compassion. She was an avid reader throughout her life and even served as managing editor of her high school paper. She graduated from Hillsborough High School and married her high school sweetheart, Gordon Henning. The Lord blessed Teenia and Gordon with 63 years of marriage!

She lived out the great commandment, loving God and loving his people. Her love also extended to animals of all kinds. She was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend.
She is preceded in death by her mother, Mary Ryals, father, Oscar Ryals, sister, Peggy Maleski, great-uncle, William H. Elliott, and great-aunt, Louise Elliott. She is survived by her devoted husband, Samuel Gordon Henning.
