Henrietta Novotny, well-known Ennis icon, talented business women, and entrepreneur, has spent three-quarters of her life navigating this world of challenges, and life’s accomplishments. On Sunday, Oct. 16, 2011, 75th birthday honors were given to her in a unique and special celebration, hosted by her family — her son, Mike Novotny, and daughter Brenda Novotny DeVore, and husband, Stewart DeVore. Hundreds of family, friends, and business associates gathered at the Penthouse Ballroom of the Sterling Hotel of Dallas for an afternoon and evening of dining and dancing.
To open the festivities, Henrietta was invited to the center of the ballroom by Master of Ceremonies, Buford Watson.
