Karen Alison Kendall, 68, beloved wife of John Kendall, peacefully passed away at her home on October 18, 2021 after a long courageous battle with ALS. She was born in Milford on September 22, 1953 to Barbara Striby Boardman of Cheshire and the late Richard Boardman. After growing up in Milford, Karen graduated from Central CT University. Before retirement she was Bursar Manager for PEG Education Group. A voracious reader, she also enjoyed to cook, travel, and spend time with her family. Her biggest loves though, were her grandsons. Time spent with them was invaluable.

My deepest sympathies to the Kendall family. Words seem so insufficient to describe Karen. She was such a beautiful soul and I am so grateful that not only did I get to work with her but she also became a dear friend.
