Myra Gail Henderson Hendrix, of Holly Pond, passed away on Saturday, July 16, 2022, at the age of 77. She was born in Cullman County, Alabama, on August 19, 1944, to William Emery and Doris Scott Henderson.
Myra worked in the office administration field for many years, and she was a member of Holly Pond First United Methodist Church. She liked flowers, and she also enjoyed reading. But what made Myra happiest was to talk! Myra could talk to anyone about anything. She loved to socialize and making a new friend brought her joy. As a lifetime resident of the Holly Pond area, Myra loved to share stories of the past and of the community she loved. She also loved to talk about her family and to hear about yours. Myra was a friend to many in our area, as well as a loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She will be missed very much by many people.
