Marian Henderson, 96, of Margaretville, died Friday, April 25, 2008 at Mountainside Residential Care Center, where she has lived since May 3, 2005.
She was born December 16, 1911, the daughter of Arthur and Essie Johnson Mead, the youngest of two daughters. She was raised in Halcott Center.
Marian married Howard Henderson on July 14, 1945, who owned a local lumber mill in Margaretville.
She spent much of her life unselfishly serving as a loving caregiver, starting with her mother, then her sister, Grace, and later in life helping to care for her two nieces.
After the death of her beloved husband, Howard, Marian moved into the Sanford Building on Route 28. Sadly, she lost all of her possessions along with the Sanford family, during a tragic fire in March of 1986.
Marian played the piano for many years at the local congregational meetings of Jehovah‚Äôs Witnesses in Arkville, of which she was a member.
Funeral services will be held at the Jehovah‚Äôs Witness Hall in Arkville at a later date.
Arrangements were by the Hynes Funeral Home, Margaretville.
