Kendra had a strong faith in Jesus Christ & was a lifelong member of Christ Community Church where she was the founder of the ladies group Bible study & taught Sunday school for several years. She was a kindhearted soul and never met a stranger. She had a smile that could light up the room. Kendra is well known for her love of the holidays, and it was very normal for her to decorate her home for fall in August & she would have the family Christmas Tree up in October. Family was her everything whether it was beach vacations to Destin, Florida or going to her brother’s house for a cookout she was always the life of the party. Kendra was a Parrot Head & loved everything Jimmy Buffett. Her happy place was with her toes in the sand sitting on a beach chair next to her husband, watching her boys play in the surf with Margaritaville playing in the background. Family & Friends may call on Tuesday, September 14, 2021, from 5 – 8 p.m. at Grace Fellowship Church 85 Quick Rd., New Carlisle, Ohio 45344 where a celebration of Kendra’s life will be held on Wednesday, September 15, 2021 at 10 a.m. with Pastor Ken Majors & Pastor Michael Berner officiating.
