Barbara Doris Henderson

-A A +A


Barbara’s life was one of service to others. She was a beloved wife, mother, friend, mentor, colleague and good neighbor. She positively impacted many lives and will forever be missed by all who knew her. 

Although Barbara was born in Newport News, Va. and spent much of her early childhood in Michigan, her family’s move to California during her teens allowed her to discover her true identity as a California girl. Following her graduation from the University of California at Berkeley with a bachelor’s degree in history, she enlisted in the Peace Corps and worked in Iran. 

From earliest childhood Barbara felt called to the ministry — despite the fact that there were few women in the field at that time. Upon her return from Iran, she began studies at Chicago Theological Seminary, earning master’s degrees in art and theology. She later earned a Doctor of Ministry from McCormick Theological Seminary in 1993. She was ordained in the United Church of Christ in 1976. Her home church was First Congregational UCC in Albuquerque. During her 35- year ministerial career Barbara served in various volunteer and official capacities at White Rock United Presbyterian Church, White Rock United Methodist Church, and Bethlehem Lutheran Church of Los Alamos.
