Elizabeth Ann ‘Beth’ Kendall, 31


Elizabeth Ann “Beth” Kendall was called to God on Jan. 13, 2014, at the age of 31, following a pulmonary embolism and heart attack while on vacation in Mexico.

She is the cherished daughter of Charles and Dolores; beloved sister of Matthew (Sarah) and Nathaniel (Alissa); and loving aunt of Will, Henry, Anna, Katherine and Eleanor.

Born in Milwaukee on Feb. 8, 1982, Beth attended University School of Milwaukee, Divine Savior Holy Angels High School, and graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2004. After working in Madison for one year, Beth returned to Milwaukee and began working at Robert W. Baird & Co., where she was employed as a registered client relationship associate in private wealth management.

Reading, yoga, ACL, F1 Racing, music, travel, cooking, fine wine and craft beers, taking long walks, flowers, spending time with friends, hanging out with her brothers, sisters-in-law, and playing with her nieces and nephews were just some of the activities Beth enjoyed.

The Claddagh ring Beth wore represented the love, loyalty and friendship she offered to others. Those who knew her will miss her infectious laugh, warm smile, quick wit, accepting heart and positive approach to life.

A memorial Mass will be held on Saturday, Feb. 8, 2014, at the Church of the Gesu, 1145 W. Wisconsin Ave., Milwaukee. Beth’s family will greet relatives and friends on Saturday at the church from 9 a.m. until the time of the Mass. Parking is available in Marquette University Lots J and F.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations in Beth’s memory to University School of Milwaukee, Divine Savior Holy Angels High School, Marquette University High School, Nativity Jesuit Middle School, Book Worm Gardens (Sheboygan) or a charity of the donor’s choice.
The family would like to express their appreciation and gratitude for the outpouring of love, condolences and support offered by all the people who knew Beth and whose lives she touched.
