On October 25, 2016 our Mother, Jeannette L Kendrick of Mesquite Nevada traveled to her next destination with dignity and incredible strength. Her life began on October 9, 1932 in Visalia California. From there she lived in Santa Maria, San Luis Obispo , Burlingame and San Francisco California. A graduate of San Luis Obispo High School in 1950, she strived very hard to participate in various activities such as the debate team. While working and going to college in San Francisco, she met a “fast talking Mormon Marine” whom she married November 5, 1952 in the “Little Chapel around the Corner”, Las Vegas NV.
Being an only child she wanted a large family with big Christmases. Her 5 Children,
Jayne L Kendrick, Mesquite NV, Thomas R Kendrick, Salt Lake City UT, Charles F. Kendrick, Limon CO, Jackie L Kendrick, Salazar, Vieweg, (deceased) and Jeannie L Kendrick, Nothe, Cody, WY. There are now 5 Grand Children and 7 Great Grand Children.
Mother, loved life, enjoyed simple pleasures from people to places, her newspapers and big billowing clouds. She had a strong conviction for her country. Loved politics and a good Martini with “extra olives.” Her laughter was infectious. Her wisdom often sought after.
Her accomplishments were amazing and her participation in the Construction Industry through the Association of Women in Construction and the Associated Builders and Contractors was invaluable not only to the industry but also our family owned Construction Company, Kendrick Brothers Construction Company, Inc. SLC, Utah.
Always giving, her wish was to donate her body to Medicine. She was preceded in death by her husband, Thomas R. Kendrick of 45 years and her daughter, Jackie Lynn.
The family wishes to thank the Staff of the Beehive House Assisted Care Facility and Mesa View Hospital, Mesquite NV; and Dixie Regional Hospital, St George UT for their outstanding care and friendship.
Her celebration of life will be held Thursday, October 27, 2016 at the Beehive House 780 2nd South at 11:30 a.m. We cordially invite all those who wish to celebrate. In lieu of flowers, Donations may be made to Mesquite Little League, Mesquite Dept. of Athletics or P.E.O. International of Mesquite.
