Shayna Elizabeth Kendall, age 4, daughter of Thomas and Amy Kendall of Long Prairie, died unexpectedly at her home in rural Long Prairie on Sunday, January 6, 2008.

Shayna was a happy and active preschooler who loved to attend the ECFE preschool program at Osakis Public School. She was outgoing and loved to talk to people, having a hello and smile for everyone she met. She enjoyed attending church and Sunday School and loved to sing songs. Reading storybooks, especially "Brown Bear, Brown Bear" and watching "Barney" and "Bob the Tomato" on television were other pastimes that she loved. Shayna loved to be cuddled and give hugs and kisses. She was full of energy and loved to spin around in her pretty clothes and say, "Look, I'm a princess!" She was a joy to all who had the pleasure to know her and she will be dearly missed by her family.

Shayna is survived by her parents, Tom and Amy Kendall of rural Long Prairie; siblings, Marcus (Lori) Kendall of Zumbrota, Matthew Kendall of Alexandria, Lindsey (Chris) Ebnet of Garfield, Jaden, Jonathan and Kiana Kendall, all of Long Prairie; her grandparents, Keith and Loraine Kendall of Willmar, Don and Sharon Davidson of Homestead, FL, Jim and Karen Thomson of Omaha, NE; and her nephew, Taven Ebnet.

Funeral services were held for Shayna on Monday, January 14, at New Life Christian Church in Alexandria with the Rev. John Taplin officiating. Music was provided by the church praise team with Sue Ronning as accompanist. Interment was at Pleasant Valley Cemetery near Clotho. Casket bearers were Marcus, Matthew and Jaden Kendall, Chris Ebnet and Brent Goodwin.

Arrangements were handled by Roy-Hetland Funeral Home in Osakis; www.royhetland.com .
