Vanessa Renee' Hendrix
February 2, 1959 - January 1, 2021
Independence, Missouri - Vanessa was born in Beausejour, Manitoba to Denzil and Mary Hendrix. Vanessa was known for her generosity of spirit, selfless love, and a smile that lit up a room. She loved her family above all and was always the first person to open her home, her heart or offer her help. Her passion in caring for others was apparent in her inability to let anyone go hungry, be cold or go without, many times going without herself instead.

Her grandchildren; Autumn Hanning, Valarie Morris, Elizabeth Stewart, Nathaniel Morris, and Benjamin Stewart. She is also survived by her younger siblings; Michelle Fosburgh, Louie Hendrix and brother in law James Fosburgh, of Springfield, Mo, along with many nieces and nephews.
