Kyndall Monique Lawrence affectionately known as "Kandi" transitioned from this earthly life to eternal life on June 10, 2020 at Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville Tennessee. Kyndall was a gift to her mother when she was born on their shared birthday August 1st, 1956.
Kyndall received her education in the Metro Public School System, she attended North High School until her class was the first to integrate Glencliff High School, where she graduated. She furthered her education at Nashville Tech. Kyndall had a love of sports and her passion was basketball, which she played in Salem town at Morgan Park.
Kyndall professed Jesus as her Lord and Savior at First Street Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of her uncle Rev. Stubblefield where she found her voice and joined the choir under the leadership of Bobby Jones. Her daughter Bianka spoke of how her mother would just sing gospel randomly around the house that was the love she had for her Lord and it made her soul feel good.
Kyndall was a traveler, she began her career at Piedmont Airlines in the early 80s, and that jump started her to move around the country. She lived in Reston, VA where she had the opportunity to participate in the March on Washington in 1983. She couldn't just settle down there, she wanted to see more so in 1984 she packed up and moved to Salinas, CA. Found love and married in 1986.
She missed her family so it was time to make her way back to them in Nashville, and she drove cross country with her two daughters stopping at various sites so her girls could experience what the country had to offer.
When she returned to Nashville, she became a caregiver for the Seigenthaler family, she really enjoyed caring for others. In 1991 she was the caregiver for her mother until she passed away. For some this may make you rethink this career choice, but not Kyndall, she still had the passion to be a sitter/caregiver up until 2017 when God had her take a "Time Out" as she called it or what doctors referred to as an aneurysm. She spent 13 days in ICU, and went home with a different love for life. She quickly pushed herself to recoup so she could care for her new great grandbuddy. She once again found her passion of caring for others.
Preceded in death were her mother, Katherine Deloris and father, Lewis James Lawrence Sr.
