Henrietta Alma Blust

Birth Date: April 28, 1917
Death Date: August 10, 2018

Henrietta Blust passed away peacefully on August 10, 2018.  She was born April 28, 1917 and is the last remaining of eight children born to Nora and Ivan Wheeler of New Albany, Indiana.  She is preceded in death by her parents as well as her beloved husband, George Blust.

She leaves to cherish her memories, her son, Ed Blust (Daryl Lynn) and Darlene Howell (Dan); five grandchildren, Mark Blust (Susan), Bryan Blust, Brent Howell, Robin Hook (Carl), and Brook Howell (Susan); seven great grandchildren, Maddy Howell, Gracen Blust, Alec Howell, Elysa Howell, Ethan Howell, Mia Blust and Kolton Howell.

She was the matriarch of the Blust family and will be remembered most for her bright spirit, insightful comments, warm heart and the inner joy of life that radiated with every smile and kind word.  She taught us much during her 101+ years and we are so grateful for the time we had with her.

Each of us who knew her, has a memory and story to tell.  Keep those memories close and know that she is resting in peace.

The family extends sincere thanks to all of our friends at Spring Wood Court and the Hope Hospice caregivers who helped us through this rough period.

    Ed, Daryl and family, We are sorry for your loss. I know her last few years were hard for her and all of you. We send our deepest sympathy. Duane’s sister just lost her husband a couple of days ago. I just happened to check out his obituary when I saw your mother/mother-in-laws death announcement. Ed, you were a wonderful son, always there for her. Prayers and hugs from us.
