The School was saddened to learn of the passing of one of its founders, Margaret Hutchens Henson.

Mrs. Henson was an eighth-generation Huntsvillian and active community leader. Her wide range of cultural interests led her to make significant contributions to her community. Chief among these was her role as a founder of Randolph School, as a long-time member of its board of trustees and as a trustee emeritus.

“Mother considered Randolph School one of her greatest accomplishments. She was so proud of what it has become,” said daughter Marnie Henson Hogan.

Following a private interment at Maple Hill Cemetery, a memorial service will be held at the Church of the Nativity, Huntsville, AL on Monday, January 29 at 1:00 p.m., the Reverend Virginia Monroe officiating.

Memorial contributions may be made to Randolph School, the Church of the Nativity, or the Huntsville-Madison County Public Library.

We thank her children, Marnie Henson Hogan and Willard Hutchens Henson '66, for sharing her obituary with us.
