On Tuesday, August 30, 2005, ANNE HENDERSON of Alexandria, Va. died at Fairfax Hospital after a courageous battle with breast cancer. Born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada on May 7, 1950 to parents Cyril Knowlton Nash and Kathleen May Barron Nash, Anne moved to Maryland and then to Alexandria, Virginia. She was awarded her A.A.S. in Early Childhood Education at Northern Virginia Community College and a B.A. in Early Childhood Education at Antioch University. Anne was the loving wife of David Henderson, mother of Jesse, Abby and Katie Henderson. Anne's love and devotion to her family was always her first priority even during her struggle with her illness. Anne served as the co-coordinator of the Religious Education Committee, Langley Hill Friends Meeting (Quakers). She was also very involved with animal rescue, serving as Virginia State Director, Yorkshire Terrier National Rescue, continuing to rescue Yorkies even as her illness progressed. Shortly before her death, Anne was chosen to receive their "Rescuer of the Year" award. As "Maxi", hundreds of internet friends and forums knew Anne as a kind and wonderful person. Many have e-mailed their condolences to the family and have expressed their love for Anne's kindness, insight, love and humor. She faced her illness with courage and grace. There will be a memorial service at the Langley Hill Friends Meeting House, Saturday, September 10, 2 p.m. at 6410 Georgetown Pike, McLean, Virginia. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in Anne's memory to the Yorkshire Terrier National Rescue, 1065 Lewis Rd., Chapmansboro, TN 37035 or through PAYPAL address [email protected]
