Just before midnight on Thursday, November 16, 2017, our Mom, Granny, and Great Granny, Elizabeth Mae Henderson, reached her arms up to Jesus and he welcomed her home.

Preceding her in death were her parents, Fred L. and Lillian W. Creasy; her husband, William ‘Bill’ Henderson; sisters and brothers-in-law, Nora Lee and Glenn Thompson and Ruby and Robert Graham.

Surviving her are her daughters, Wanda Jones Basham and husband Rick Basham, Brenda G. Jones; grandchildren, Amy Basham Kyle and husband Jay and their children, Hayden and Kayleigh, Jason Basham and wife Pam and their children, Marshall, Lindsey, and Logan, Justin Vaught and wife Tiffany and their daughters, Arya and Kennedy (due in January 2018), Emily Reynolds and her husband, J.C. and their daughter, Ellie Brooke. She is also survived by four nephews and two nieces, all of whom were special to her.

Special thanks to Kerry McGrath and the nursing staff at Carilion NRV Medical Center, and Dr. Leslie Badillo and staff for their guidance and compassion.

Mom loved flowers, gardening, and crocheting, but above all she loved her family. We know this love will remain with her in her heavenly home as will our love for her.

The family will receive friends on Monday, November 20, 2017, from 1-2 p.m. at Horne Funeral Home. The Funeral Service will be held at 2 p.m. in the Chapel, with Pastor Scott Obenchain officiating. Interment will follow in Sunset Cemetery, Christiansburg.
