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.
Vanessa was preceded in death by her parents. Vanessa is survived by children Shawn Morris, Sunshine Hanning, Angela Stewart and their spouses; Sarah, Billy, and Jonathon. 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. An online memorial service is scheduled for 6pm CST on January 14th, 2021. All are welcome to celebrate Vanessa's life.

It really saddens my heart to hear this news of her passing. She had the heart of gold. But, she's with God and in no more pain. Prayers for her family and friends. I know her fur babies are sadden also. She really loved them.
