Wendy always had a smile and was so brave in her courageous fight. I loved her Facebook posts that always made me laugh even out loud. You were so loved by your family. Marcia E
Wendy was like another mom to all of Jeremy, Becky and Matt's friends. She always called me son when I seen her. Always greeting with a big hug and smile. So many memories over the almost 30 years I was honored to know her. Thank you to Jeremy, Becky and Matt for letting me in your lives to know Momma Wendy! My deepest sympathy to all of you. I will miss her! Danno
