Lula Mae was born Aug. 26, 1906 in Coyle, Okla., to William Henry and Mary Lind (Falckenstein) Carrier. She died March 4, 2001 at Cushing Hospital.
She married Raymond V. Henderson on Oct. 20, 1936 at Guthrie. He preceded her in death on Nov. 22, 1985.
Mrs. Henderson was the youngest of 13 children. She attended Vassar Grade Schools and graduated from the 8th grade. After their marriage, the couple lived on Ray's old home place for several years. Mrs. Henderson moved to Edmond in 1958. She didn't have the opportunity to attend high school, but never lost the desire to get a diploma. So, in the late 1960's, she began a correspondence course through American School of Correspondence from Chicago, Ill. Mrs. Henderson chose law and journalism as her selective subjects and received her diploma in 1972. While living in Edmond, Mrs. Henderson helped in a day care center, which later led to caring for some children in her home when the center closed. She also worked for Shedrick's Jewelry and in the household department of Snyder's Hardware. In the fall of 1970, she moved to Perkins, Okla. In 1972, the Hendersons were involved in a very serious car wreck and for some time Mrs. Henderson was unable to attend to her household duties. She was a member of the Big Creek Church of the Brethren where she taught junior and senior high Sunday School and sang in the choir.
Mrs. Henderson was chosen as a delegate to the National Convention in Orlando, Fla. She enjoyed traveling, knitting, crocheting, raising houseplants and painting. She was an accomplished seamstress and marvelous cook. She kept scrapbooks of interesting articles, many that were taken from the Perkins Journal. She sang in the family quartet at church and for funerals. She was a member of Big Creek Church of the Brethren and a homemaker.
She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, eight brothers and four sisters.
Survivors include one son, Charles Henderson of Oklahoma City; two daughters, Carol Davis and her husband Marvin of Perkins, and Charlene Stanbrough and her husband Bob of Guthrie; six grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.
She is also survived by her sister-in-law, Enid Carrier of Fort Worth, Texas.
Pall Bearers are Jim Carrier, David Carrier, Nolan Carrier, Lynn Davis, Jay Davis and Matt Davis.
