It is with great sadness that the Boca Grande Historical Society learned of Henry “Smiley” Woodward’s passing. She was an honorary member of our society. Henry took part in a history program in 2005 reminiscing about growing up in Boca Grande as a young child.
She charmed the audience with her special memories and re-established herself as a member of a very special community for which she will be remembered in our archives. As a result, she and the black community will not be forgotten.
