Pond Bank is a small village on Route 997, off U.S. 30 East in Franklin County. The story of the White Lady of Pond Bank has mesmerized folks for over 60 years.

Kendall was employed by the Greencastle-Antrim School District as the middle school librarian for 35 years and served as a language arts teacher for several years. She was an adjunct professor for Shippensburg University in the library science department.

In 1996, Kendall wrote her first book, "Drummer Boys of the Civil War."
