FRAMINGHAM, MA (BRAIN) — Jeanne Henry, a longtime co-owner and employee of Landry’s Bicycles, passed away Tuesday in the loving care of her family after a 23-year battle with cancer. She was 57.
Henry, her husband Peter Henry and brother-in-law Tom Henry worked together running Landry’s Bicycles for more than 35 years. Four Landry’s stores now serve the Boston area.
Jeanne Henry was known as Landry’s ‘company mom’ by shop staff, a role she cherished. Declining health forced her to retire reluctantly from working in the store in October 2012. Landry’s ownership transitioned to an employee stock ownership plan in 2011, but Peter and Tom Henry remain active employees.
Even as Jeanne Henry’s health declined in recent years, she enjoyed riding 200-mile bike tours and hiking up 12,000-foot mountains with her husband Peter. The couple often commuted to work at Landry’s on their tandem. In addition to cycling, Jeanne also enjoyed family get-togethers, cooking, hiking, dogs and bird watching.
She is survived by Peter, daughters Jennifer and Becky and their families, two grandchildren, her mother Alice and her dog Holly.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, Oct. 26 at 2 pm at the First Congregational Church of Sharon, located at 29 North Main Street in Sharon, Mass.
