Our Mom, Debbie Sue, was born on September 22nd, 1955, in McPherson Kansas.
Mom was the second of four children born to Art and Helen Regehr, her older sister Kathleen and two younger brothers, Wayne & Roger. They grew up on the family homestead north of Inman, farming and running a prosperous hog business.
Nursing was Mom’s calling in life, and after high school, she attended Hesston College to pursue her degree. Upon graduation, she took a position at a mountain hospital in Pikeville, Kentucky, where she met Gary Kendrick; in 1978 they were united in marriage and settled back home in Kansas. Three children were blessed to Debbie & Gary: Joshua Douglas (Allison), Ashley Paige and Molly Rashel (Tyler). Their lineage produced ten grandchildren: Clayton, Colton, Kaleb, Harper, Hudson, Harlow, Halston, Perry, Sutton and Garrytt.
She is preceded in death by her parents and is survived by her siblings, children and grandchildren.
Mom passed away on June 6, 2022, after a brief but mighty fight with brain cancer.
