WENDY WILSON GARRAGHTY Obituary
GARRAGHTY, Wendy Wilson 61, died peacefully January 22 in her home in Franklin, MA with her brother and beloved animals at her side. She was the Executive Director of the Yankee Golden Retriever Rescue for the last ten years. Prior to that, she was an analyst in the Treasury division at the Bank of Boston. Wendy's desire to make a positive impact on the lives of both humans and animals was an inspiration to all who knew her. She was the proud adopter of eleven Yankee senior/special needs dogs. She also adopted several cats over the years, all of whom good-naturedly tolerated the many new Golden faces in their home. Wendy's quiet demeanor belied her fierceness as an advocate for Goldens in need. She worked tirelessly on their behalf, seldom taking any vacation time. Wendy connected with each and every dog that came through Rescue and was, in fact, a virtual encyclopedia of the dogs and their adopters. She is survived by her brother, Gregory H. Wilson, her sister, Beverly W. Nace and her brother-in-law, Robert F. Nace. Donations in her memory may be made to the "Look Beyond Time Fund" at YGRR.org.
