Died peacefully Friday, June 8, 2018 at her home in McLean, VA, one day after celebrating her 75th wedding anniversary to Richard G. Henninger. She was 95 years old.
The first of three children of Chester and Lorraine Rude, "Lorry" was born on September 12, 1922, and grew up in Los Angeles, California. As a junior at the University School in Pasadena, she made an impression on Richard Henninger when he saw her disappointment at receiving a "B" in chemistry. The two married five years later on June 7, 1943.
Mrs. Henninger was a 1944 graduate of Stanford University. At the conclusion of World War II, she and her husband settled in Northern Virginia where they raised five children. Her extensive volunteer work included serving as president of Langley School and helping to found the Fairfax YWCA. After being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis in 1966, she participated in numerous studies to develop new treatments at NIH. She continued to work as an accountant at Arthur Young and Karloid Corporation and was Vice President of NCI Realty in Reston and Henninger Media Services in Arlington.
Lorraine Henninger had a prodigious memory for the people, places and foods she loved. Looking back on her life, she titled her memoirs, "A Love Story." She will live forever in the hearts of her husband, Richard; her children Richard Jr. (wife Yuki), Robert (wife Renee), Alice (husband Jim Menks), Jeffrey, and James (wife Wendy); 19 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren, and the many people she inspired with her strength and grace.
