In Loving Memory of Alberta Sayles


Alberta Sayles,

May 17, 1936 - September 1, 2020

Alberta was born in Stamps, Arkansas to Lonnie and Joanna Kendrick. Alberta moved to Seattle with her parents and two of her siblings as an adolescent. As the oldest of the Kendrick children, she looked after and protected her siblings, taking them to various activities and defending them when necessary, lol!

Alberta attended Garfield High School and was a professional Seamstress who also loved to crochet. She worked at Boeing for many years sewing seats or other parts together, as well as other duties until her retirement. Alberta loved music, all kinds of music!

Alberta is preceded in death by her parents Lonnie and Joanna Kendrick; two daughters, Rena Sayles and Joanna Williams; two sisters Anna May Duckworth and Diane Kendrick; and two brothers Al Kendrick, Sr. and Thurman Kendrick.

Alberta leaves to mourn, her sister Vivian McClinton; son Lonnie Sayles; daughter Velina McCoy (David); grandchildren Lonnie Sayles; Dominic Hearvey; Edward Hoey; Ashley McCoy; Chemire Williams and Austin McCoy; two great granddaughters Amara and Alayna Sayles; along with a host of nieces, nephews and cousins.

The family thanks everyone for your heartfelt expressions of sympathy.
