Marguerite Henderson Way
96th Street and 30th Avenue
To her East Elmhurst community, Marguerite Henderson was larger than life. Everyone looked up to her, as the big sister and mother figure at home and around the neighborhood. Marguerite’s nature as a caretaker translated over to her work with the First Baptist Church food pantry, assuring that families and homeless in the area were fed.
Hassan Pore is one of Marguerite’s younger brothers, who speaks here about the life his sister lived and the interactions she had with those she cared deeply about.
