Birth: Nov. 22, 1884
Wood County
Wisconsin, USA
Death: Jul. 7, 1959
Olmsted County
Minnesota, USA

One of two first year graduates of the St. Mary's School of Nursing, Rochester, MN on November 19, 1906. She married Dr. Melvin Henderson and raised two sons there. She was a very active hostess for Mayo Clinic and Rochester functions. She actively supported Calvary Church in many capacities, and organized their still successful annual fruit sale (first run from her home for many years before moving to the church kitchens). She was an avid gardener and enjoyed both canning her produce, as well as, entering (and winning) flower shows. She loved both international and US travel, organizing and packing family and friends in the car for extended motor trips.
Predeceased by her husband in 1948, she was survived by her sons and three grandchildren.
