ROYALINE NANCY HORD KENDALL passed away Sunday June 3, 2018, after a short illness.

ROYALINE NANCY HORD KENDALL, known as TOOKIE by family and friends, was born in Houston to ROY NEWTON HORD and NELLIE JOHANSEN HORD.


ROYALINE, was very beautiful in person and in spirit. She was a very thoughtful, kind and caring person. And everyone that knew her also knew she was a strong-willed individual that did things her way.

ROYALINE, was an accomplished artist. She started studying art at an early age. She won an art scholarship to the Museum of
Fine Arts, Houston, at the age of nine and studied there for ten years. She sold her first art work at age of ten. She continued her art education at the University of Houston where she received her Bachelor of Fine Art Degree and did graduate work at UCLA, San Diego State University, Scripts, and the University of Texas. She taught art in public and private
schools in Texas and California. Some of the awards and medals include the following: By having a painting accepted by the Texas Watercolor Society, she became a "Signature" member of the TWS, a status she maintained throughout her life; a medal for a painting submitted to the San Antonio Art Group; and a first place award by the National Organization of Women for her painting, "WOMAN ABOVE."

ROYALINE's paintings and sculptures were displayed in exhibits and galleries in Hollywood, California, Houston and San Antonio. She also served as a docent
for several years at the McNay Art Museum in San Antonio. While living in Southern California, she was introduced to Alger H. Kendall, Jr. who, at the time was serving as an officer in the U.S. Navy. After Alger was released from active duty, ROYALINE and Alger returned to Texas and were married in Victoria, Texas, on December 27 1969.

ROYALINE is survived by her husband of forty eight years, Alger H. Kendall, Jr. and four daughters, Sherry Johnson Hartman (Tommy), Stacey Johnson Veazey, Sally Kay Kendall, and Scarlet Kendall
Wright (Jason); nine grandchildren, two great grandchildren, and a sister, Joann Locher (Dave). She was preceded in death by her parents Roy and Nellie Hord and one grandchild.

If you choose, donations can be made in ROYALINE KENDALL's name to the South Texas Children's Home, Karnes County Humane organization, The Woman's Club of San Antonio, or the Church of your choice.
