Sunny was born Sept. 13, 1941, in Panguitch, Utah, to James Ercil and Maxine Anderson Henrie. She graduated from Las Vegas High School in 1959. She was married to Rudy in the St. George Utah Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on June 17, 1960. They lived in Utah for a short time before moving to Las Vegas to raise a family.

In 1983 Rudy died, leaving her with six of their eight children still living at home. In 1984 she moved to Utah, first to Panguitch and then to St. George to be closer to her parents and continue raising her children. She has called St. George home since 1986.

As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints she has served faithfully in a variety of callings. For the last 12 years, she has served as a Family History Center Missionary. She exemplified this scripture found in the Book of Mormon, β€œAnd we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins.”
