May 28th, 2008 Kendra graced this world, and this world was forever changed.  At 10:54pm Travis and Allie became her parents, and she began changing the world one person at a time. All 7 pounds 11 ounces of her started her fight that day, and that was followed with a fixed wing ride to the NICU at Presbyterian Saint Lukes hospital in Denver where she had many visitors that included many snuggles from Grandma Cindy and where she proved everyone wrong and broke out 18 days later. This is where we believe her love for fast movement of all kinds came from.  From riding with her dad and papa on the lawn mower to the razor to the car and dad’s pickup she always wanted to go fast and if she could have road a rollercoaster she would have never gotten off so she settled with papa mike pushing her in her pony walker.  Over the years Kendra had 3 helicopter rides and countless ambulance rides.    

It took 18 months to finally get the diagnosis of cerebral palsy.  However, Kendra never let this diagnosis define her and she surpassed all odds of that diagnosis. 

From Kendra Jane, to munchkin, to pumpkin, to sister, she had a different name to everyone who loved her.  She was stubborn from day one and chose to miss her papa Rocky’s birthday by one day so she could have her own day.  She conquered every obstacle that came her way and if she heard someone say it wasn’t possible she made sure to show them it was possible.   She had that Timm attitude that proved to be the strength she needed. Her entire family always supporting every step of the way.  She never lacked love. Her momma gave her every chance and made sure she was always dressed to a T, nails painted, earrings to match the outfit of the day, and hair always on point. Her dad made sure she always had the fast movements at home and got to play all the fun games. 

Halloween became a staple in town for her.   Between her papa Rocky and dad and the engineering aspect of these costumes and nana Ruby and mom being the brains, artists, and seamstress she was always looked for to have the most amazing costumes around her wheelchair. The entire town was always supportive, including when she was given the opportunity to travel to Dusseldorf Germany for stem cell transplant. The town and many surrounding towns came together for “Kendra’s Journey” to give her this opportunity which changed her life forever. 

Kendra became a big sister in June 2015 to twins Kimber and Konrad and even though she was limited she found a way to be the best big sister including clotheslining them with her legs when they were running around and annoying her. That turned into later years where she would tell them to shut up with her dynovax. She had the best eye roll and spoke with her eyes and those eyelashes for days. She had a way to make new people work to care for her and embarrass them. She had her dad’s sense of humor and thankfully her mom’s looks.    Even when people said it wasn’t possible we always found a way to make it possible.  If they told her mom no, she found away past it.  Kendra got her strength from her mom, and she taught everyone that encountered her what it was like to love someone. She had the best smile and her laugh was contagious.  Her disability never held her back. 

In Kendra’s 15 years of life she endured many years of therapy and doctors’ appointments, along with many hospital stays where she proved her strength to be the fighter we know her as.  She overcame many obstacles in her life that most adults couldn’t endure. She fought up to her very last breath where she was surrounded by so many loved ones, att 4:20 pm March 29th, 2024, in which she passed peacefully and no longer in pain.
