Betty Hendrix was the cheerleader of her daughter’s life.

She was a friend, a supporter, and a voice of positivity to Hendrix’s daughter, Nikki Rochelle Dorsey, and that’s how she will be remembered.

Hendricks, who hosted the African American inspiration radio show for 16 years on WFLT-AM 1420, died peacefully on April 19 at his home in Flint on Saturday morning.

She was 74 years old.

A full funeral service, viewing and family time took place at New Jerusalem Full Gospel Baptist Church on April 22 and 23.

Hendrick’s impact on the Flint community is hard to describe because it was shown in so many different ways.

Her radio show spoke to young and old alike about the positive things happening in and around the Flint community.

“There’s usually a lot of negativity when people talk about Flint. Even living in Texas, people say, ‘Oh my gosh, you’re from Flint,’” Dorsey said. . “But what my mom has been able to do is take that negativity and transform it. She shared what was going on in the community and got people more involved.”

Dorsey recalled a specific segment on her mother’s program entitled “Young and Gifted” which highlighted young people doing interesting things in the community.
