(Carolee) Beth Hensley

August 26, 1931 — November 9, 2022

(Carolee) Beth Hensley, 91, Mooresville, passed away November 9, 2022. Beth was born in Clark County, Illinois, on August 26, 1931, to the late Wayne and Florence (Wells) Medsker. She married Maurice E. Hensley on June 13, 1954, and he preceded her in death on May 16, 2017.


Beth graduated from Martinsville (IL) High School in 1949 and earned a Language Arts and Library Science Degree from the former Indiana State Teachers’ College, now Indiana State University. She was a member of the Zeta Tau Alpha Sorority and Alpha Beta Alpha Library Fraternity. Beth taught from 1953-1955 at Mooresville High School. She was also the owner of Jack & Jill Children’s Shop and co-owned Hensley Coal & Oil with Maurice for many years.


Beth was a member of First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) Mooresville since 1955. She was affectionately known as “Beth on Tuesday” at the Mooresville Public Library, where she was a dedicated volunteer since 1987.
