Pat was born 10-16-1923 and passed 2-14-2023. She grew up on the east hill above Greenlake and graduated from Roosevelt High School at 16 years old.
Pat started at the U of W before her 17th birthday. She graduated with a degree in music. She had met Jack Henderson, her one and only, and married on 2-27-1944.
Jack and Pat moved into their finished home above Fauntleroy, and both became involved at church, school, and Y communities. Pat gave piano lessons to many in Fauntleroy and played for the church.
The couple had three children, Jack H., Robert B., and JeanAnn, who all flourished in the Fauntleroy community.
Pat loved the water and they spent summers at Camp Coleman and their property on Hood Canal. She continued to swim at the W. S. Y.. The day before her stroke, she swam 15 laps and went out to an Anniversary dinner with Family.
Mom will be dearly missed by all, her children, Jack (Shannon), Bob (Vallyn), Jeanie (Delby); their children, Blake & Reed, Dean & Lynly, Robert, and great grandchildren and extended Family and Friends.
