Georgia Henderson Obituary (1943-2021) – Ogden, UT

Georgia Jo Crosbie Henderson
Georgia Jo Crosbie Henderson entered this life on February 10, 1943, the third of six children of George Rock and Francis Done Crosbie. She died peacefully at home on July 17, 2021

Born in Ogden Utah, she loved her hometown and often told stories from her childhood on Grant Avenue. In 1961 she graduated from Ogden High School and briefly attended Weber College.

She met and married her eternal sweetheart, Chad Henderson, in 1965; together they had four sons, Chad Scott (Gari Jo) Ogden, Derek Chad (Becky) Riverdale, Darin Chad and Adam Aird (Mandy) Pocatello. She has nine grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.

Mom, Grandma, Aunt Jo or Joey were loved by many. In return, she loved everyone. It didn’t matter what time of day or night; She was there for her friends and family. Often times she would sit with someone all night while simply listening and comforting them in their grief.

She was a “boy-mom” before the term was invented, always the greatest supporter and cheerleader in all activities her children were involved in. She didn’t have to know any rules of a sport, she just had to see her kids having fun and try their best.

She served faithfully in many callings in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, including Primary and Relief Society, where she made many lifelong friends.

She was friendly and insisted that her boys be friendly (even under threat of a wooden spoon). Everyone she met was drawn to her kindness and compassion for others. With her time, talent, and hard work ethic, she has happily served everyone she met.

She loved cool summer nights and enjoyed sitting on a swing while the sun went down and chatting with the many friends and neighbors who came over to visit her. She cared beyond measure and made sure everyone in her life had what they needed.

She loved antiques, old musicals and dolls. She loved her sons, but every time a niece or granddaughter came to visit, she took the time to look at some dolls.

She loved the Christmas season and loved driving around to look at the lights; she loved the season to celebrate the birth of her Lord and Savior.

In her final years, when her mind and body began to fail, she was so frustrated that she couldn’t do all the things she used to do, but she still managed to stay optimistic about life.

Death is not the end, it is just a transition and although many have been heartbroken here, there are many joyful reunions on the other side.

She is survived by her husband Chad and their sons; Scott, Derek and Adam, their brother Wayne (Tammy deceased) Crosbie, the sisters Karen (Mike) Baptist, Kim (Rick) May and Cindy (Wayne) Chafin. Her parents, her sister Barbara and her son Darin, whom she has missed for 36 years, preceded her in death.
