Obituary for Kendall Sherwin (Hudye)

HUDYE - Kendall Sherwin Hudye of Yorkton passed away suddenly on Tuesday, November 10th 2020. She was 46 years of age. Kendall Rae Louise Sherwin Hudye was born in Yorkton on a frosty April 28, 1974. She was always an "effervescent bubble", aptly described by one of her favourite teachers, Mrs. Martel. Kendall's distinctive voice caught everyone's ear, leading many to remark, "You should have a career in broadcasting!" She spent many hours in the dance studio studying ballet and jazz, and many more hours in the swimming pool practicing with the synchro team to perfect their routines. In later years, she fell in love with curling and golf, spending many happy hours with friends in the curling rink and on the golf course. Kendall loved to travel. Family trips took her to every province in Canada except Newfoundland. An especially memorable trip was to DisneyWorld with dear family friends. Band trips with Dale Milne, Larry Pearen and Joe Hary were highlights for Kendall. Scuba diving was a love developed later as trips to Cancun, Los Cabos, and Jamaica provided opportunities for her to obtain certification as an advanced open water diver. She proudly accompanied her son, Chase, as he gained the same certification. Kendall's organizational skills put her in a position to take the lead in such organizations as the playschool for her children. An extra special project was the Chase Kraynick Memorial Water Park in Canora. She loved organizing festive events for family and friends, entertaining and welcoming them into her home. Kendall was aware of others, celebrating their successes and happiness and empathizing with their distresses. This also applied to her love and caring for animals, especially her cats, Henry, Jezebel, Bandit and Smokey. Kendall took her career as an administrative assistant seriously, offering her excellent organizational skills to Community Futures, Affinity and Crossroads Credit Unions, Yorkton Plumbing and Heating, as well as the family business, Royal Building Movers. Her involvement with people expanded and grew as she coped with the devastating diagnosis of her daughter, Payton, with leukemia. Her family of friends grew with the parents and workers who became part of her expanded family at Ronald McDonald House in Saskatoon. Kendall was also a private person keeping many thoughts and hurts to herself. When family and friends saw her struggling in recent years, it became harder to help her as she retreated into herself. In the end, she left us suddenly on November 10th, unable to overcome her illness. Her struggle was over. Kendall leaves to celebrate her life her children, Chase and Payton Hudye and their father, Jamieson; her parents, Ken and Merle Sherwin; her brother, Kyle (Amie) and niece and nephews Kailyn, Kedan and Kooper; her sister, Korin (Dion) and niece Calla; her uncles Vern Gelette and Russ Calnan; her aunt and uncle Bev and Bordie Adams and her cousins Kim, Kent and Kelly Adams; and a wealth of friends. The funeral service was held on Saturday, November 21st 2020 from the Yorkton Memorial Gardens Family Centre with Rev. Deborah Smith officiating. Songs played were 'You Might Think' (The Cars), 'You Raise Me Up' (Josh Groban), and 'Maybe Tomorrow' (Terry Bush). Son Chase was the urnbearer. The interment took place in the Garden of St. Mark.
