Patricia Jane Moore Henderson



Patricia Moore Henderson went to be with her Lord on Monday morning, August 6, 2018 while at home, after a short period of illness. She was born on January 2, 1946 in Richmond, Virginia to the late Ciscero Kermit and Mavis Proctor Moore. In addition to her parents, she was also predeceased by her husband--Ken Henderson; daughter--Deborah Sue Mason; and sisters--Jean Claytor and Linda Moore.

She leaves behind to cherish her memory, her daughters--Donna Marie Wiggins of Penderlea and Jodie Anne Graves of Orange Park, FL; grandchildren--Rebecca Jane Wiggins of Wood Dale, IL and Joshua Robin Wiggins of Penderlea; siblings--Mavis Anne Brandt of Penderlea, Rebecca Karen Medina of Wilmington, Mary Joyce Clay and husband Richard of Richmond, VA, Susan Farmer of Clarksville, KY, and Richard Dean Moore of Penderlea.

Mrs. Henderson was one of a family of eight children who grew up in Richmond, Virginiia. She spent her career as a telephone operator with Bell South Telephone Company until she retired. She moved to North Carolina later in life where her parents had roots from their early life. She was a joyful spirit and had a tremendous love for jewelry. In earlier life, she enjoyed fishing, hunting, and working in her lawn from sunup until sunset--grooming those roses she enjoyed so much. She was always dressed prim and proper with everything in place when she left her home, and was a joy to everyone she encountered.
