Henderson, Catherine Ella Brown
Catherine Ella Brown Henderson - Colorado Springs Gazette - February 28, 2007 - Catherine Ella Brown Henderson of Colorado Springs left this life peacefully on February 24, 2007, at the age of 89. Her family extends their gratitude to "Catherine's Angels," the four care-givers whose assistance allowed Catherine to remain at home in her final time. Catherine was born in Idaho Falls, Idaho on November 1, 1917. She graduated at the top of her class from Las Animas High School and was awarded a scholarship to Colorado College, where she majored in Business and Banking, and was active in Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority. Through a sorority sister, Catherine met her future husband, William C. Henderson, also a CC student. Upon graduating Colorado College, as a Phi Beta Kappa with cum laude honors, Catherine was granted a fellowship to attend Duke University in Durham, NC. Although she enjoyed the south, her future husband, Bill Henderson, wooed her to return to Colorado Springs, where she completed her Masters Degree in Business and Economics at Colorado College. She and Bill were later married in Phoenix, Arizona, and after World War II, returned to Colorado Springs where they both spent the rest of their lives. Catherine's business education was put to good use maintaining the books for the family business, Pikes Peak Photo. She also supported her husband's political career when he served as Colorado Springs City Councilman and Mayor during the 1950's and 1960's. Catherine valued history, and belonged to two Questors Antique Study Clubs, DAR, and the El Paso Posse Club. She was an avid collector of antique fairy lamps, silver souvenir spoons, covered animal dishes, antique thimbles, and angels of all sorts. Catherine also enjoyed art and photography, and her china painting projects not only added beauty to her home, but were recognized with Colorado State Fair awards. She loved flowers, and cultivated magnificent iris beds and beautifully manicured lawns surrounding her home on Union Boulevard. Catherine was an accomplished cook, preparing fresh fried trout, buttermilk biscuits and homemade wild raspberry jam on a wood fired cookstove at the family's cabin at Carroll Lakes near Woodland Park. Catherine was preceded in death by her husband, William Henderson, who died in 1989. She was also preceded in death by her parents Margaret and Wilson R. Brown of Las Animas, Colorado. Catherine is survived by her two daughters, Cherith Henderson Marchase (Anthony), of Salida, and Judith Henderson Schwall (Thomas) of Steamboat Springs. Catherine loved her four grandchildren and great grandson: Judy's children, Marlies Ravenscroft Lepore (Chris) of Denver, and their 14 month old son, Luc; Catherine May Ravenscroft of Leadville; and Cherith's children, Christopher Marchase of Denver, and Matthew Marchase of Fort Collins. She is also survived by her sister, Evelyn Brown Young Weiler, and one niece, Janet Young, both of Colorado Springs. Leading a selfless life for others, Catherine's husband and family always came first. Catherine's life was an example of beauty and brains, with caring and devotion to family, and an abiding trust in a gentle and loving God. Catherine, beloved mother, wife, sister, will be dearly missed by her family. Our earthly loss is Heaven's gain, so may she soar with the angels.

Hendrix of this city, a naval pilot serving in the Pacific theatre, was killed in action recently and was buried at sea, according to word received by his parents late yesterday. Lieut. Hendrix, who was commissioned an ensign in the Navy on May 19, 1943, following training at the Corpus Christi, Tex., Naval Air Station, had twice been assigned to overseas service, leaving the second time Jan. 23 of this year. He participated in one flight over Tokyo, his parents reported, and had undertaken a number of important flights during naval operations in other parts of the Pacific. No details of his death were received in the notice forwarded by the Navy department to his parents beyond the fact that he had been killed and had been buried at sea. He was born and reared in Walsenburg, and attended local school, having graduated from Huerfano county high school with the class of 1940. He and his twin brother went to Canada in 1940, where they took flight training with the Royal Canadian Air Force. On July 27, 1941, the brother, Robert, was drowned in a lake near Prince Albert, Sask., Canada, while on furlough. Later, Ralph Hendrix returned to this county, and entered the Navy shortly thereafter, receiving his ensign's commission in 1943. He served overseas with the Navy from September of 1943 until March 1944. During this time he was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for air action against the Japs in the South Pacific. The award was presented by Rear Admiral Carl Sherman, USN, at ceremonies at San Diego. Later, he was commissioned a lieutenant in the Navy Air Forces. It is understood that he participated in the thick of the engagements against the Japs recently, and had to his a credit a number of important missions. He was here on leave in December of 1944. He is survived by his widow, Anna Mae Hendrix, the former Anna Mae Vickers, and infant daughter he had never seen; by his parents, by four brothers, William Doyle and Paul of the armed service, Marvin and Dick of Pueblo, and by one sister, Hazel of La Junta. A brother, Pfc. William D., was wounded in action in the Philippines on March 23, after having been overseas for the past eight months. He holds the Purple Heart decoration. Paul is in the Navy serving somewhere in the Pacific. Lieut. Hendrix was active in school activities while attending high school here, having an outstanding athletic record. Huerfano World – August 9, 2001 – In Remembrance - Tomorrow, 27th July 2001, will be the 60th anniversary of the death of two classmates of my Huerfano County High School Class of 1940: Walt Ridge and Bob Hendrix. Walt drowned in Andrews Lake east of Walsenburg, and at the same time Bob drowned in a lake in Canada. The identical Hendrix twins, Robert and Ralph, had enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force, and had just completed their initial period of training. Walt's funeral took place in the Methodist Church on Wednesday afternoon, July 30th, and Bob's in the Baptist Church on Saturday, August 2nd. Their graves are in the Masonic Cemetery. Ralph, the twinless twin, went on to enlist in the United States Naval Air Corps where he flew a plane based on an aircraft carrier in the pacific. Toward the end of World War II when the desperate Japanese resorted to the suicidal use of the 'Kamikazi," the day came when one struck the carrier Ralph was on, and he perished. His body was buried at sea. To you, Walt Ridge, and Robert and Ralph Hendrix, my perpetual thanksgiving for all your unforgettable gifts and spiritual treasures in my life.
