Ms. Treasure Hennessey, 37, of Fort Mitchell Alabama passed away early Saturday morning, September 2, 2023 in Fort Mitchell, Alabama.
A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, September 9, 2023 at Noon in the Chapel of Vance Brooks Funeral Home located in Phenix City, Alabama with Pastor Chris Nolan officiating.

Treasure was born in Jacksonville, Florida on June 26, 1986, daughter of Kevin J. Hennessey, Sr. and LeAnn Horne Franklin. Treasure graduated from Smiths Station High School in 2004 with honors and was a member of the National Honor Society and was a member of the Smiths Station High School Marching Band as color guard. She served as a Page in the Alabama State House of Representatives during the summer for the late Representative Lesley Vance of Russell County, Alabama. She continued her academics at Chattahoochee Valley Community College completing courses varying from basic requirements, Emergency Management, Criminal Justice and Psychology. Treasure transferred to Rivertown School of Cosmetology and Barbering where she obtained a Masters Level Degree in both. She continued her career in barbering, which she loved. Treasure volunteered for many local civic and governmental organizations. She had an innate ability to connect with people and loved helping anyone that she could regardless of their situation in life. She always wanted to make their life better as well as the world around us…no matter the obstacles or challenges. If you knew Treasure, you knew that she had an adventurous spirit and fearless nature; combined with a thirst for knowledge about the world around her. Her spirit and curiosity provided many opportunities for travel, educational opportunities, even acceptance into the United States Coast Guard. She wanted to save the world. She had a passion for animals too – she loved them, and they loved her back. Her two most recent loyal companions Graceland and Scruffy were her besties and travel pals. She was a fierce competitor. Treasure showed Tennessee Racking Horses from a young age up through high school and won the Alabama State Racking Horse competition. Every day with Treasure was an adventure. If you were one of the lucky ones who was able to ride alongside our Treasure during any point of her life; you will know exactly what this means when I say you were in for a ride of a lifetime and those memories need no pictures to be remembered—they will live forever in your heart. In a way, you could say Treasure was a collector of people too. She has friends from all walks of life and loved each one of you in her own special way. She loved the outdoors, collecting rocks / fossils and especially the moon and stars. She was so talented, loved creating art and designs, photography and was an avid reader and music lover from all genres. However, family was her top priority. She loved her “Bubba” (Kevin) and her little sister (Tiffany) more than anything in this world except her two sons. Treasure always had their backs through whatever life threw their way no matter how bad or good; no questions asked Treasure was coming to help. She was the same with all her friends. If she was needed, she was there.
However, I know if Treasure was able to tell you today, she would tell you this and this I believe and know beyond any doubt that her greatest accomplishment in life was becoming a mother to Micheal Gunn and Maverick Gage. Her two sons were her life, greatest loves and accomplishments. She worshiped every breath they take and was an exceptional mother. She thrived as a mother enjoying their every step, expression or activity. There is no measure to her love for Gunn and Maverick. She and her boys went everywhere. As a PTA parent, she attended every school event, sports activity and social event with them. If there ever was a “helicopter parent” it was Treasure. Gunn and Maverick are her entire heart and soul. Her reason for being here on this earth. She always told them “I will always love you to the moon and beyond” and she does.
Treasure was preceded in death by her grandmothers: Martha Louise Turner Horne, Phenix City, Alabama; and Ida Elizabeth Kersten Gripp of Norfolk, Virginia.
Treasure is survived by her mother, LeAnn Horne (Franklin) and husband Robert (Bob) Franklin of Fort Mitchell, Alabama. Treasure’s two sons; Michael Gunn Eason and Maverick Gage Eason; her sister, Tiffany LeAnn Hartin, of Phenix City, Alabama and her brother, Kevin Joseph Hennessey Jr. of Phenix City, Alabama. An aunt, Amanda Horne McGill and husband James of Phenix City, Alabama and an uncle, Louis Kevin Horne of Beauregard, Alabama; Cousins, Abby and Billy Horne, Mauri Fuqua, Kaleigh Fuqua Patel and husband Dipam Patel, Ben Ryals; and nieces and nephews, Timothy (T.J.), Raelynn Grace, Mary Martha and Kevin III; and many extended family and friends.
