Mrs. Barbara Ann Hendrix

August 18, 1948 - January 6, 2020

Barbara Ann Hendrix, 71, entered into eternal rest surrounded by her family at her home on Monday, January 6, 2019.

This loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and First Lady was born on August 18, 1948, to the parents of the late K.L. Stevenson (2004) and Miss Narvell Knight (1972). Barbara was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. She received her education from the Dallas Independent School District.

At the tender age of 15, Barbara married the one and only love of her life, Pastor Willie Hendrix (18), on January 5, 1964. Shortly after their union, the two lovebirds began to grow their family rapidly. From this union, God blessed them with nine beautiful children.

In 1968 Barbara and Willie accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. In June of 1970, the couple established their ministry, Jesus Pentecostal House of Prayer, where Willie served as the Senior Pastor until he passed away on July 30, 2015.

First Lady Barbara was a quiet, gentle spirit who was known for praying for and encouraging others. This ferocious prayer warrior fervently lead prayer service every Thursday night at her church. Her love for the Lord was no secret. She was a devote Christian who stressed the importance of faith and prayer to her children.

She was preceded in death by her daughter, Norva Denise Hendrix, on December 16, 1989. She leaves her memories to be cherished by her eight children: Ingrid Hendrix, Susanne Butler (Henry), Steven Hendrix (Kimberly), Michael Hendrix, Reneeโ€™ White, LaTonya Thornton, Cedric Hendrix, and Javonda Allen (William).

She also leaves behind three grandsons that she raised as her own: Kelvis Hendrix (Yolandra), Larry Hendrix (Jawana) and DeMarkus Thompson; a total of sixteen grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

As we celebrate the life and legacy of this beautiful soul, we would like to leave you with words Barbara often used to encourage others; โ€œItโ€™s gone be alright.โ€

Condolences for Mrs. Barbara Ann Hendrix

To the Hendrix Family We take this time to express our personal condolences to the family of Barbara A Hendrix. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire family, and friends of the family. On this day you join you in grieving over the lost of your love ones. Really this is the proper thing to do seeing that we are all a part of God's earthly family. That being the case, when you grieve, we will all grieve together. In the future days to come, I will also look forward to the time when the earthly family will finally be able to rejoice together. When would cause such a change in our spirit or emotions. It is because of this long awaited promise from God finally becoming a reality. The promise deals with the restoring of life back to people like Barbara, and a great host of others who have fallen asleep in death. The promise is recorded at John 5:28-29. The promise states that God would use His great powers to call to those in the grave, and that our love ones would respond to His voice and stand up in life. Oh what a wonderful time period this will prove to be. From this one scriptural promise, God is giving His earthly family His personal guarantee that Barbara and others will stand up in life again. That our departed love ones will be reunited back with their many family members and friends. God understand that many will have a lack of faith in this promise. So our Creator takes the time to preserve nine accounts in the Bible that speaks about this arrangement soon to take place earth wide. Here is just one such example that is recorded at Acts 9:36-42. May I take this time to encourage all to see how the verses apply to those who await their awakening from the deep sleep of death. So in closing we say please keep this promise near your hearts at all times. Remember that God has given us His personal promise. Yes it is impossible for God to lie.(Titus 1:2)
