The Sadler's loved to travel, visiting all states and several countries. Bob worked for the United States Postal Service in Dallas seven days a week for months so they could travel for a month at a time. They often traveled in a pickup with a camper. The Sadler's were active members of their church in Dallas and Canton. After retirement they moved to the family farm in the Whitten Community near Canton, TX. When her health declined, she moved to assisted living in Canton, TX. Upon needing more specialized care, her nieces moved her to the Pavilion Assisted Living in Lebanon, TN in 2017. While at the Pavilion, Henrietta continued to read her Bible as she and Bob had always done. She would occasionally lead bible study and read the Bible to the other residents. She worked many puzzles during her stay and loved all the shopping trips, birthdays and holidays spent with her Tennessee family. Henrietta will be buried at Wesley Chapel Cemetery in the Watkins Community of Van Zandt County, where she will join her husband, father, mother and her sister. Wesley Chapel will have five generations of her family, the first having been buried in 1832.
