Tribute & Message From The Family

It is with tremendous sadness that we announce that Ellen Henderson—age 49 of Powder Springs, Georgia—passed away on May 12, 2017 due to complications from her fight with breast cancer.

Ellen was born on September 17, 1967 in The Hague, Netherlands to her late father, Leon Charles, and her mother, Elisabeth (neé Klaassens) Doornik. She and her family immigrated to the United States in 1969, where they would take permanent residence as United States' Citizens. She earned her diploma from Rangeview High School, where she also met her husband, Samuel Robert Henderson. Sam and Ellen were married on April 30, 1988 at Saint Stephen's Episcopal Church in Aurora, Colorado and recently celebrated their twenty-ninth wedding anniversary. The couple moved permanently to Georgia in 1995, where their family grew with time and love.

Ellen worked at CompreCare prior to her move to Georgia and later transitioned into a full-time role as a stay-at-home wife and mother. She was a loving wife and mother that continually moved those near her with her constant displays of love and kindness. She loved entertaining at her home, spending time with her family, and visiting the beach.

Ellen is survived by her husband, Sam; her son, Seth and his wife Anna (neé Auchenpaugh); her son, Conner; her daughter, Samantha; her mother, Elisabeth; her sister, Nicole; and numerous other aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews, nieces, and in-laws.

Her family wishes to extend a sincere thank you to all those who have offered condolences and support in this difficult time.
