In Loving Memory of Synthia Laree Henriksen

Synthia Laree Henriksen, beloved wife, devoted mother, and cherished friend, peacefully passed away on December 23, 2023, at the age of 62. Born on January 24, 1961, in Flagstaff, AZ, Synthia's radiant spirit touched the lives of all who crossed her path.

A woman of immense love and warmth, Synthia's joyous presence brightened every room she entered. Her passion for family was unparalleled, and she adored her five children with a boundless, unconditional love. In the embrace of springtime, she found solace and beauty, reveling in the blossoming of new life.

Synthia had a zest for life and enjoyed various activities that brought her unbridled happiness. Puzzles were her sanctuary, providing her with a sense of peace and accomplishment. Whether cheering on her favorite teams or casting lines into tranquil waters, sports, fishing, and camping held special places in her heart. Additionally, Synthia dedicated her time to nurturing young minds as a valued member at BYU, positively impacting countless lives.

With a vibrant spirit and an infectious laugh, Synthia painted the world in shades of lavender, her favorite color, reflecting her calming and compassionate nature. Tinkerbell, the magical and spirited character, captured her imagination and brought her inner child to life. Her nimble hands found solace in the art of knitting and crochet, creating tangible expressions of her love for family and friends.
