Kendra had a strong faith in Jesus Christ and was a lifelong member of Christ Community Church where she was the founder of the ladies group Bible study and 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 and 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 ParrotHead and 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.
