Beloved wife of the late Paul Wendler III; loving mother of Paul IV and Michael; caring Grammy of Paul V, Micaela and Shane; dearest mother-in-law of Kimberly Wendler; and best friend to her dog, Posey. Joy-Ann attended Nursing School at Boston College and obtained her Master's at University of San Francisco. She dedicated herself to Nursing and caring for the sick for over 40 years. She served as a Nursing Supervisor at California Pacific Medical Center, Peninsula Hospital and Lucile-Packard Children's Hospital.
