    Wendy was a loving and kind example of serving others. She was always concerned others were happy and was careful not to let her illness get in the way of enjoying events and laughing. She loved music, and indeed, seemed to be enjoying music all the time. Loves to her children.

  • I feel so very blessed to have known Wendy; even though it was for just a brief time. She touched my life and I believe that she touched the lives of many people. I felt her genuine warmth and concern.
    I send my heartfelt condolences to Wendy’s family and close friends. They are in my thoughts and prayers at this time. ♥️

    I was her visiting teacher and friend. We watched the series Chuck together. We went to lots of movies, We sang together, we joked together . We had lots of fun. What a great and lovely Person. I loved watching Her sing in the choir . Or playing piano at a baptism. Or teaching primary songs. That’s what Wendy was, and is. She is music!

  • Dave and Sandy Moody

    I was fortunate to have Wendy come into my life twice. Once when I was finishing up my senior year of high school. We dated and met socially from then until I went on an LDS mission. We had to part ways when she met and married Rich.
    The second time was about 6 years ago when our paths crossed in social media and we were able to catch up on each other’s lives to that point and we’ve stayed in contact until Father called her Home.
    Farewell my dear friend until we meet again.

  • Mary Lynn Thompson

    I have had the joy of knowing Wendy for about 30 years! I’m sorry I couldn’t be at the funeral. I loved having a friend who loved me in spite if my many faults. We could disagree on things and still remain strong friends. I loved the two years we shared as roommates. Wendy you taught me so much. I miss you my friend, not goodbye, but until we see each other again!
