Wendy devoted her time and energy to her family, friends, and neighbors. She was dedicated to the lives of her spouse, her children, and her grandchildren. She treasured quality time with her family and was rarely seen without Stevie or a grandchild in tow.

She spent countless hours volunteering her impeccable organizational skills and precise attention to detail at the Benefit Club helping those in need or planning an event.

Her Christmas Village was a labor of love and a holiday masterpiece.
