'Kendra Had So Much To Give' Says Family of Dallas Dentist Murdered in Apartment Parking Garage
The family of the 35-year-old Dallas dentist who was fatally shot last week after exiting her car in her apartment building’s parking garage wants the public to know that she had a “huge heart.”
“Two of her passions were children and serving others,” Hatcher’s family writes in a statement to PEOPLE. “She helped so many people here and around the world, from building houses in Florida to providing medical care to children in Ecuador. We are very proud of all her amazing work, and it is our hope that justice will be served.”
According to her family, Hatcher was an intelligent, hardworking and fun-loving daughter, sister and aunt.
Hatcher, originally from Central Illinois, wasn’t just beautiful on the outside, her family writes: “Beauty also flowed from Kendra’s heart,” reads the statement.
Hatcher was salutatorian of her high school senior class and graduated from DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana, on a service scholarship.
She always wanted to serve in the medical field and settled on dentistry, which she studied at the University of Kentucky. Hatcher especially enjoyed working with children and would often tell her family stories about her pediatric patients.
While her family “will miss Kendra tremendously, especially her laugh and smiles,” and writes that they are “so thankful her 35 years were lived to the fullest,” they add that they can’t fully mourn and celebrate her life until “authorities apprehend the person(s) responsible for committing this senseless act.”
