Obituary of Mary Frances Henderson

Mary Frances Henderson transitioned from this life at age 74 on Wednesday, February 2, 2022.


Mary Frances was a native of Pulaski, VA, but in 1972 she moved to Roanoke, VA, where she met her future husband of 49 years, James Henderson. Together they raised a family in the shared faith of Jehovah Witnesses. Mary Frances touched the lives of many through her familial, spiritual, and secular ties. The attributes that define Mary Frances the most were her fiery spirit, generous nature, and beautiful smile, which were all enhanced by her underlying faith.
