Kendra Mackenbach Obituary, Death – I have no idea how to even start explaining this. The fact that we are all here to share a memorial is so surreal. Kendra was taken from us unexpectedly on Friday. She was an excellent mother and wife, dedicated to her community, and she fed people with the love that she had cultivated in her own hands. She was a vivacious, kind, witty, and loving person.
Through the creation of this monument, we hope that you will be able to contribute some of the photographs and recollections that you have of Kendra. I would be grateful if you could help me complete this with anecdotes about her that will help us remember and keep her alive in our hearts. The generosity that has been shown to Tyler and the boys is beyond our wildest imagination. A heartfelt thank you to everyone who has contributed, shared, or left a message. Every little bit helps ease some of the responsibilities that were placed on him during that time.
We are holding a fundraiser to assist Kendra’s family through this challenging time by providing financial support. The funds that are donated will be put toward assisting Tyler and the boys as they make this shift in their lives. We are overwhelmed with appreciation for the love and support of everyone. Thank you very much, Liz, and please accept my condolences on behalf of myself, Karl, John Mackenbach, Mari Mackenbach, and all of the Mackenbach children. Kendra spent her childhood on Shelley Drive, which is where I first saw her as an adorable little girl with sparkling eyes, freckles, and a beautiful smile.
Now my heart is devastated because I will never see her again. She matured into such a lovely woman, both on the inside and the outside. Observing her embark on the journey toward creating a happy and lovely family by getting married My deepest condolences go out to the family and friends of this angel, praying that they will find the fortitude to get through this trying time. Oh, Mackenbach family, the news of her passing has left my heart in such a shattered state. I am thinking about you all and sending lots of love and support your way. I will never forget how wacky and sweet she was, not to mention how free her soul was. I am so sorry for the void that she has left both in this place and in your family.
