Jennie was born on May 18, 1940 to Dovie and William Spike Satterfield in Charlotte, NC. She is a graduate of Harding High School in Charlotte. While a student at Harding, she met Thomas C. Hendrix who would later become her husband. They were married on September 1, 1962. She attended Flora McDonald College and later studied Medical Technology and worked at Presbyterian Hospital in Charlotte. Jennie and Tom are the parents of two children, Lee Ann and Gregg. The Hendrix family relocated to the Atlanta area and eventually settled in Snellville, Georgia where they raised their family. Jennie was involved in church, school, and community activities and spent many evenings at the little league ball fields. Jennie was a long time member of Snellville United Methodist Church. Tom and Jennie are the founders and owners of The SEFA Group, a coal ash beneficiation business committed to serving the ready mixed concrete and public utility industries as well as providing transportation and environmental disposal services. The SEFA Group's main office is now located in Lexington, SC. In the late 1980s, Jennie and Tom relocated to Edisto Island and commute regularly between their creek side home and their offices in Lexington. Jennie remained actively involved with The SEFA Group as Vice President and Board Member until her death. Jennie was a member of The Presbyterian Church on Edisto Island. She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother.
Jennie is survived by her husband, Thomas C. Hendrix of Edisto Island, her daughter, Lee Ann Wagner (Tobey) of Awendaw, SC and her son, Gregg Hendrix (Wendy) of Lexington, SC. She is also survived by seven grandchildren, Drew Wagner, Katie Wagner, Caroline Wagner, Rebecca Wagner, Grant Hendrix, Sarah Hendrix, Claire Hendrix, and by two great grandchildren, Mary Margaret and Levi Wagner. Jennie is also survived by her brother, Ronald E. Satterfield and by numerous nieces and nephews.
