Sydney was born February 25, 1931 in Eldorado, Illinois and then attended the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana from 1948-1952. After graduation, she flew as a stewardess for United Airlines.

Sydney married D. Moran Kuykendall in 1953, and they lived in his hometown, Temple, Texas, until 1973. Sydney and Moran had two children, Holly and Darr. They were members of First Presbyterian Church, and Sydney was active in many women’s groups through the church, the Cultural Activities Center, and the City Federation. She was past-president of the Contemporaries, Arno Art Club, Domestic Science Club, and the Floral Arts Club.

While Sydney and Moran lived in Salado, Texas, from 1973-1995, they attended First United Methodist Church. She was involved in several church and cultural clubs in Salado such as the Salado Chamber of Commerce Ladies Auxiliary and art and bridge clubs.

Sydney married Bob Endicott in 1995, and they resided in New Smyrna Beach, Florida and Harrisburg, Illinois until his death in 1998.

Over time, Sydney lost her sight and moved in 2008 to be closer to her children. While living at the ranch at The Grove, Texas, Sydney attended White Mound Baptist Church. Many hours there were spent enjoying books on tape. She also loved keeping up with current events on FOX News.
