BARBARA ROGERS HENDERSON Nov. 15, 2017

Barbara Rogers Henderson, 81, passed away on November 15, 2017 at Sombrillo Nursing and Rehabilitation Center where she was known for her smile and pretty eyes. 

She enjoyed living in Pajarito Acres very much since she was raised on a cotton farm in Atoka, south of Artesia, NM. She had her own horse and thus did not mind the “Horsey set” and especially the lot size.

Music was a large part of her life including clarinet, piano, organ and voice.
