Peggy Sue Henderson was born July 9, 1940 in rural Floris, IA to Glenn and Blanch Benge Wilkinson. She attended school in Eldon, graduating with the Eldon High School Class of 1957. After graduation she worked for the Davis County Courthouse, sold real estate, and worked at the lumberyard in Eldon. She was united in marriage to Kenneth Hemm and became a loving mother to four children: Alan, Mark, Jay, and Chris. Kenneth passed away in 1988 and after his death Peggy's path crossed with Gary Henderson. The two were married in Las Vegas on April 13, 1991. This began a journey that lasted over 28 years. Much of their time together was spent traveling in their motorhome around the United States. She especially loved the trips to Yellowstone and Orgon Pipe Cactus National Monument. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend who will be deeply missed.
Peggy was preceded in death by her parents, her first husband, Kenneth Hemm, and two siblings, Jack Wilkinson and Carol Grinstead.
Left to share her story is her loving husband, Gary Henderson; four sons, Alan Hemm (Sandra), Mark Hemm (Lisa), Jay Hemm (Shelley), and Chris Hemm; two stepdaughters, Keri Henderson and Jennifer (Rob) Schwinger, as well as her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
