Debbie Sue Kendrick

Our Mom, Debbie Sue, was born on September 22nd, 1955, in McPherson Kansas.


Mom was the second of four children born to Art and Helen Regehr, her older sister Kathleen and two younger brothers, Wayne & Roger. They grew up on the family homestead north of Inman, farming and running a prosperous hog business.


Nursing was Mom’s calling in life, and after high school, she attended Hesston College to pursue her degree. Upon graduation, she took a position at a mountain hospital in Pikeville, Kentucky, where she met Gary Kendrick; in 1978 they were united in marriage and settled back home in Kansas. Three children were blessed to Debbie & Gary: Joshua Douglas (Allison), Ashley Paige and Molly Rashel (Tyler). Their lineage produced ten grandchildren: Clayton, Colton, Kaleb, Harper, Hudson, Harlow, Halston, Perry, Sutton and Garrytt.


She is preceded in death by her parents and is survived by her siblings, children and grandchildren.


Mom passed away on June 6, 2022, after a brief but mighty fight with brain cancer.

Visitation will be held from 5-7 pm Thursday, June 9, 2022 at Inman Funeral Home, Inman.  The casket will remain closed. Please join us in a celebration of her life on Friday, June 10 at 1030am at Bethel Mennonite Church, Inman, Kansas, with the service being live streamed on both the funeral home facebook page and the church website.  Interment will follow at North Inman Cemetery.  Memorial contributions can be made to the Shriner’s Hospitals for Children, in care of Inman Funeral Home.  To leave a condolence for the family, visit:  www.inmanfh.com.

Debbie came to Muncy Vally Hospital ER in Pennsylvania as a travel nurse. In one day she fit right in as if she had been part of our team and family for years. What an awesome nurse and person. I loved working with her but more importantly talking books and retirement with her. It saddens me that she didn't get to enjoy retirement. However she is now in the presence of our Savior Jesus Christ. Rest easy my friend in His glow forever and ever. "May His face shine upon you".

I’m gonna miss you Momma 🤍 Jun 9 2022 11:35 PM

It's never easy to say goodbye to those we love. Our hearts ache with you, Kathy and family, as you mourn Deb's home-going. But we don't mourn as those without hope. May you each know God's peace that passes all understanding - a peace not based on wishful thinking, but firmly grounded on God's promises that are all YES and AMEN in Jesus.

So sorry to hear of Debbie’s passing. Remembering the good time we had as cousins, when we all played together, while our fathers were working together baling hay! Praying for God’s comfort and peace for siblings, children and grandchildren.
Marna Regehr, cousin.

Debbie has always been a very special person to me. I first met her when she was my camp counselor at camp Mennoscah. She was so kind and caring and we developed a great friendship. Our paths crossed again when I worked with her at Hutchinson Hospital in the ER. She was a beautiful person and had a beautiful soul. Praying for Gods comfort for the family during this difficult time.
