Peggy Kendall

November 2, 1951 — January 7, 2021

Peggy Kendall, (69), of Atlanta, Ga passed away on January 7, 2021. She was reunited in heaven with her parents Charles and Barbara Prevost, sisters Genie Kobarg and Annie Prevost. Peggy is survived by her beloved husband of 41 years William (Billy) Kendall, daughters Virginia Reese and Rosanne Dorfman and their families: Rodney Reese, Rowan (8), Loic (4), Daniel Dorfman, Willie (4), Kendall (1); her siblings Joe (Susan), John (Stephanie), Chuck, Bill (Debbie), Gloria Cheely (Asim), Carol, Francis (Paige), Christine Martinez (Jose), Tom (Stephanie), Marjorie, Richard Kobarg, In-laws Zilda and Carl Christoper, extended family and friends.

She was born on November 2, 1951 in St. Johnsbury Vermont. Her father Charles was a machinist and even with the large family they moved around several times, her most fond memories coming from West Hollywood, Florida. and Caldwell Texas. She moved to Atlanta in 1968 where she finished High School. She met Billy several years later at a concert in Piedmont Park. They fell in love quickly and spent the rest of their life in Atlanta where they created an incredible life.

She was a devoted mother and grandmother and spent so much of her time caring for her family. She always said that was what she wanted most, to be a mother and be with her family. She would sit and play make-believe with her grandchildren, make them their favorite snacks, and she joked that she wasn't the parent so she could spoil them if she wanted to.

She truly loved life and lived it to the fullest. She and Billy went on many trips around the world with friends and family but some of her favorite times were spent in Evergreen, Alabama on the family property. She was an incredible cook and a wonderful host and held many parties throughout the years. Her favorite place was her home, where she spent many years chipping away at home renovation projects and hours spent in her lovely garden. They would often enjoy their evenings with a trip downstairs to the "Kendall Bar" for a "Cosmospolitan," and sit on the deck with a bag of cheetos enjoying the lake view.

She worked as an office manager in her family business, Kendall and Murff General Contractors. She was also an active member of Shallowford Presbyterain Church, where she served in numerous ways. Up until the week before her death she was still taking meals to members in need. She was a member in her neighborhood Garden Club, helping plan meetings.

Shallowford Presbyterian Church will host a zoom memorial service on Tuesday, January 19. You may find information for the zoom link through the website. In lieu of flowers a donation (check only) can be made in her honor to The Alabama 4-H Foundation, 102 Liberty St. Rm 103 Evergreen, Alabama 36401.
