She is survived by her brother Whitney Williams, her sister Monique Smith, her husband Lars DeWaardt of 7 years, her son Isaac Puckett, and her daughter Lyllian Puckett. 

Kendra was a loving mother, and an outstanding wife. All who knew her experienced her kindness and compassion, and were shown her undying support, understanding, and love. Kendra was very creative, in photography, gaming, and truly anything she set her mind to. Kendra lived in many places, worked several jobs, and went through many hardships. However, through it all she pursued her passions making many friends along the way. She was funny, smart, creative, and so much more. 

Many things can be said of Kendra; her life, cut way too short, was full of unconditional love for her family and friends. With her words she impacted many lives in the most positive way possible and she will be greatly missed. To leave an online condolence, please visit
