MORTON Lucille A. Henderson, 88, of Morton, Illinois, formerly of McAlpin, Florida, passed away Friday, May 12, 2023, at Reflections Memory Care in Morton, Illinois.

She was born June 17, 1934, in Farmington, Illinois, to Russell and Louise (Lockwood) Barnes. Lucille married Ronald Henderson on August 7, 1954, in Canton, Illinois. He preceded her in death on December 9, 2008. She was also preceded in death by her sister, Phyllis and her brother, Ralph.

Surviving are her sister-in-law, Rozanna Barnes of Eureka, Illinois; one niece; seven nephews; and many dearly loved great and great-great nieces and nephews.

Lucille farmed with her husband for over 20 years, worked for Dr. Barnie Vanzant for 29 years, and worked over 10 years at North Florida Pharmacy, last working in March 2020.

Lucille loved singing, puzzles, yard work, and reading. She was an active member of Live Oak Church of God, where she was secretary of the Sonshine Sunday School class and president of the Merry Widows group. It was Lucille's lifelong desire that the love of Jesus would shine through her so that others would want to know Him as their Savior.

The family wishes to thank the staff at Reflections and Compassus for their loving care of Lucille and for their kindness to our family over the last 31 months.
