Marsha Ann Kendrick

On Wednesday, March 23, 2022, Marsha Ann (Orr) Kendrick, age 70, passed away in Concord, North Carolina.


Marsha Ann (Orr) Kendrick was born on August 25, 1951, in Baltimore, Maryland.  Marsha graduated from Archbishop Keogh Catholic School in 1969. She married James Kendrick in 1971, and they were married for 40 years. She had her own daycare business in the 90's and loved those kids like they were her own. She worked at Gardiners Furniture for close to 20 years and made some everlasting friendships while working there. 


Marsha is survived by her son, Adam Kendrick, and his wife Ada, of Concord, NC; daughter, Gretchen Murphy of Pennsylvania; granddaughters: Brooke Kendrick and Bree Kendrick of Concord, NC, Ciarra Rennie of Maryland, Samantha Rennie, Khloe Murphy, and Kendal Murphy of Pennsylvania.


Marsha is preceded in death by her husband: James Kendrick; parents Marshall Orr and Lorraine (Otter) Orr; her sister Diane Champine; best friend Jackie Griswold; and her cat Gabe.


The beach was always Marsha’s happy place and she lived out her retirement in North Myrtle Beach, that had always been her dream. She loved everything in the colors of pink and teal. She loved her some Bon Jovi, but her first music crush was the Beatles. Her granddaughters are her pride and joy. She is so proud of them and loved them more than anything.

A visitation will be from 11am-1pm in the funeral home chapel. A funeral service will begin at 1pm with Deacon Ed Whitesell presiding. The burial will be at Loudon Park Cemetery at 2pm.
