In Memory of

Alice Hendrickson

October 30, 1929 - August 6, 2021


Alice Hendrickson went home to be with the Lord on August 6, 2021. She was born in Detroit, Michigan on October 30, 1929 and was a member of Life Christian Center in Lee’s Summit, MO.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Martin and Almaretta Allcock, her brother Joe Allcock, and her beloved husband of 54 years, Rev. Keith Hendrickson.

Alice is survived by her 3 children: Lois Ann Blatt (Art), Lloyd K. Hendrickson Jr.(Paula), and Sharon Hendrickson, 7 grandchildren:  Rev. Shawn Blatt (Renee), Teri Woolley (Jonathan), Michael Atwell (Dosha), David Atwell (Alexis), Kate Brusseau, Lisa Hendrickson (Dominic), Lori Davila (Joel), and eleven great-grandchildren: Christian, Noah, Chase, Brianna, Kayla, Madison, Dominic Jr., Jackson, Trent, Max, and Samuel.

Alice met her husband at church and they raised their three children in a Christian home. As her children became older, she was a 4H leader, Sunday School Teacher for 2-3 year olds, and a church camp counselor. However, at church camp, she only counseled the 8 year old group.  She laughed about not wanting to counsel the teen girls because she had trouble counseling her own teens!

Alice and her husband, Keith, joined a Square Dance club in the early 1960’s called the “Allemande Leftovers”.  Alice made a lot of the family’s clothes including her square dance dress/pantaloons, and Keith’s square dance shirts. Every weekend they could be seen whirling and twirling at the square dance barn.

Alice’s husband Keith started pastoring Life Christian Center in Lee’s Summit around 1975 and everyone loved the “pastor’s wife”. She did not do the typical “pastor’s wife things”, like music and public speaking, but she was a good support for her husband and was an intercessor, praying for her family and friends.

Some of her favorite things to do were church activities, hiking and camping.  The mountains were her favorite place and Alice with her husband and family even backpacked in their younger years. She also enjoyed jeep rides in the high country of Colorado. When they camped, they either had a small pop-up tent trailer or later they had a small trailer.

In her latter part of life, she cleaned the tables at McDonald’s on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10AM to 2PM.  Her customers loved her and when she retired, the dining room was full of people who had come to honor her and say goodbye. She knew them all by name!

Alice’s pride and joy was her children and grandchildren. But the best of all for her was her great-grandchildren! Sadly, Alice did not get to see Samuel, the eleventh great-grandchild.

Amongst her family, she is best known for her exclamation of, “ooooooh Keith!!!!!!” when he was being silly! Even toward the end of her life she was still making her family laugh! She will be missed!

May we all be strengthened by the example of Alice’s faith and her faithfulness to Jesus, her church and her family.

Alice was such a kind sweet soul. It was my privilege to get to know her over the years and do her hair. We shared so many laughs and memories over the years. She will truly be missed. My condolences to her entire family, she was a jewel of a person.
