Obituary of Elizabeth Alaine Davis Henderson

Elizabeth "Liz" Alaine Davis Henderson, age 88, of Asheboro went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, October 4, 2020 at Autumn Care Nursing & Rehabilitation in Biscoe. Mrs. Henderson was born in Wilkes County on May 22, 1932 to Otis and Gertha Lunsford Davis and was a graduate of Union Grove High School and Mitchell Community College. Liz was formerly employed with Stimpson Hosiery Mills, as a Certified Nursing Assistant at Davis Hospital, and the Assistant Activities Director at Autumn Care Assisted Living in Statesville. She was employed as the Assistant Activities Director at Cross Road Assisted Living in Asheboro for 7 years, and following her employment, volunteered there until her health declined. She was a member of Cross Road Baptist Church in Asheboro and was an active member of her home church, Western Avenue Baptist Church in Statesville, where she worked with both the bus and deaf ministries. If anyone could be called a compassionate "Good Samaritan" it would be Liz. "And the King shall answer and say unto them, 'Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.' " Matt. 25:40 In addition to her parents, Liz was preceded in death by her husband, Donald Edward Henderson and her son, Pastor Johnny Henderson.
