Grace Frances Henderson, born Grace Frances Kung, lived from January 8, 1958 to May 18, 2024. 

   She was the high school sweetheart and wife of Steve Henderson, the mother of Nate and Chad Henderson,

the mother-in-law of Kelsey and Yvette Henderson, and the grammie of Seylah, Keaton, and Daphne Henderson. In addition, she was a successful business person employed as a financial adviser with PNC Bank, the chief designer of a home fit for the cover page of Better Homes and Gardens, the head organizer of a myriad of family and community events, an amazing chef, and a devoted Christian lady who was ready to be received to her heavenly home.  Growing up as a military child, Grace resided in Hawaii, Panama, Germany, Arizona, and Washington state before moving to California. There, she fell in love with a boy who threw rocks at her upstairs window to ask her out and brought ice cream to make her smile. The pair invested a seemingly endless

amount of energy into creating a life together of which they could be proud.

This included doting on a pair of rough and tumble boys who learned slowly, though profoundly, what it means to be hard-working and honorable men as they observed their parents’ consistent examples.

   Grace herself was a paragon of hard work who ventured daily to make the world around her more organized and more beautiful. After the birth of her two sons, Grace embarked on a career in banking where she worked her way up from teller to manager to financial adviser. She took pride in helping others take strategic steps to invest in their future. Her free time went to seasons of service as a head deaconess, a member of Rotary International, a host for church small groups, and participation in church choirs.  Grace Henderson was the kind of person who made the world better than she found it, who offered sound advice, who people named their children after, and who chose optimism amid struggle. She was noble, kind, determined, charitable, beautiful, trustworthy, considerate, intelligent, and aptly named “Grace.” She will be remembered fondly by those who were blessed to know her.

   Memorial service will be held at Cross Point Community Church, located 1301 12th Street, Modesto, CA. on June 29, at 11 a.m.
