Our beloved grand mother Henrietta Lucille Allen, ended her journey of life and entered into heaven on the morning of November 3rd, 2022. Henrietta was surrounded by her loving family at the time of her death and entered into the afterlife peacefully after a long battle with her health. She was 64 years old.
Henrietta was born to Anna Belle Pratt and Micheal Allen. She was raised in life by her mother Anna Belle and father Otto Pratt and was the oldest of 7 children. Henri had one son, Chauncey Allen, although many people in her life referred to her as mom, aunt or grandma due to her loving and giving nature. Her life would seem too short to many, but those of us who were Blessed to be touched by her presence understand that her existence and the imprint she left on our hearts exceeded the quantity of time that she stayed here. Henrietta was talented and adventurous in many aspects of her life, she was a master of beadwork and sewing, an avid traveler, and an amazing friend to many. When Henri wasn't playing bingo or working on beadwork she could be found at home, surrounded by loved ones. Henri was very caring and always had her home open to whomever needed a place to stay or a warm bed to sleep in.
Henrietta is survived by her father Otto Ricky Pratt, brothers John, Mark, and Terry, sister Stella, son Chauncey, her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, various nieces & nephews, and countless friends. She was predeceased by her grandmother Lucy WhiteCloud, mother Anna Belle Pratt, brothers Otto Ricky Pratt Jr, and Michael Brett Allen.
Services will be held at the Otoe-Missouria Tribal Agency on November 4th and 5th. On November 6th we will be having a traditional noon feast with burial to be followed at 2pm. Pallbearers for the ceremony will be Kamon Pratt, Mason Pratt, Edgar Moore, Antwone Pratt, Joe Gibson, and Zachary Harragarra. Honorary Pallbearers are Ryan Pratt, Stephen Pratt, Jonah Pratt, Donovan Harragarra and Louis Harragarra.
