Mrs. Kendall was a member of Tri-County Baptist Church in West Chester, Ohio where she served in the Children’s ministry. She was preceded in death by her husband, Lawrence E. Kendall, and a son, Lawrence E. Kendall Jr. (Skip). Mrs. Kendall is survived by her daughter, Kay Shaddock, and husband, Peter, of Lynchburg, VA, her son, Thane Kendall and wife, Ava, of Gastonia, NC, six grandchildren and sixteen great-grandchildren. A graveside service will be held at the Reading Cemetery, 200 Columbia Ave., 45215 on Tuesday at 10 a.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to a charity of choice.
Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.
Words can’t express all the wonderful childhood memories this great lady has given me. She was definitely like a second mother since if I wasn’t at my house I was probably at the Kendall’s visiting my best friend Kay. I was afraid that would come to an end when they built a home on “the lot”, but that wasn’t the case. They still came and got me to go and stay at their new home. So many great memories that are so precious to me today, and are such a large part of who I am. God is lucky to have her with Him now. My thoughts and prayers are with all those who now must bear the burden of this great loss.
Kay and Thane and families,
I was so sorry to hear about your Mother’s death. I have so many wonderful memories of the years you live in Carthage and when you move to “the lot”. I remember when Skip died and how hard John took the news.
You might remember that I entered the convent here at Oldenburg. I work here in the finance office.
Keeping all of you in my thoughts and prayers.
