Mrs. Kendig was born and raised in Kennett Square, where she graduated from St Patrick’s Grade School and Kennett Consolidated School.  She worked at the DuPont Company as a secretary prior to marrying her husband and then as a teacher’s aide at Kennett Consolidated School for a number of years.  She was an accomplished vocalist who performed at Longwood Gardens and in her father’s minstrel shows, but her true joy was being a homemaker and raising her three sons.  Her Sunday dinners were something that everyone looked forward to.

She and her family spent 30-plus years vacationing in Belgrade, Maine.  Upon her husband’s retirement from Camp Kennebec in Belgrade, the Kendigs enjoyed their summers on the coast of Maine where they spent much of their time with family and friends.

Mrs. Kendig is survived by her sons, Kevin (Veronica) of Sarasota, Fla. Terrance (Anna Marie) of Newark, De., and David of Newtown; two grandchildren, David Jr. “Duke” and Devon; and several nephews, nieces, grandnephews and grandnieces.  She was preceded in death by her parents Francis P. and Florence (Leonard) Mundy; her brother Francis “Pete” Mundy; sisters Margaret Chrzanowski and Mary Mundy; sister-in-law Laura (Kendig) Myers; and brothers-in-law John Chrzanowski and Benjamin Myers.

The family would like to extend their appreciation to the caregivers at Maris Grove Rose Court and Crossroads Hospice, who had a special bond with Mrs. Kendig.

You are invited to visit with her family and friends from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m, on Friday, Oct. 21, at the Kuzo & Grieco Funeral Home, 250 West State Street in Kennett Square.  A Funeral Mass will follow at 11 a.m. at St. Patrick’s Church, 212 Meredith Street, Kennett Square.  Interment will be private.
