Deputy Governor Jim Henry lost his wife, Pat, to a battle with cancer.
Pat Henry, 70, was surrounded by her family and friends at the Kingston family farm when she died Monday.
“Pat was selfless. She spent her life devoted to her family and others and will be sorely missed,” said Gov. Bill Haslam.
“Crissy and I are praying for Jim, the Henry family and their many, many friends across the state.”
The Henrys were heavily involved in community activities that supported Roane County.
