Danelle Ann Henderson

We are heartbroken to announce the death of our beloved Danelle Ann Henderson, of High Springs, FL.  She passed away on June 29, 2022, surrounded by her loving family.  She was born in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, on October 6, 1949, to Daniel E. Henderson and Beatrice Horn Henderson.

Danelle had an adventurous spirit, rising to any challenge.  She giggled a lot with a twinkle in her eye and a smile on her face.  Her free-spirited heart and generosity brought joy to everyone.  She enjoyed spending time listening to music, tending to her flower garden, and loving her animals.  She spent a lot of time advocating for vulnerable children and animals, volunteering, and donating to the Humane Society, Kiwanis Club, and other worthy causes.  She enjoyed cooking and entertaining.  Dani’s favorite pastime was spending time with family and friends.

Danelle graduated from Petal High School in 1967 and then proceeded to earn an Associate in Paralegal Studies from Santa Fe College in Gainesville, FL.  She was an employee of the University of Florida for 30 years.  She retired as the Associate Director of the UF Self-Insured Program.  Her fiery, tenacious attitude made her exceptional at her job.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Daniel Emmett Henderson and Ella Beatrice Horn Henderson, her daughter Diane Renee Towater, and nephew Mark Henderson.  She leaves behind to mourn her loss her spouse D. Theresa Emma, son Charles Christopher Towater, her brother Terrell M Henderson (Glenda), her sister Peggy H Henson (Jim), one grandson, numerous nieces and nephews, great-nieces and nephews, great-great nieces and nephews, cousins, and many friends.  She will be greatly missed by all who loved her.
