. For many, Wendy was their Rock. Whether a friend for a few months or a lifetime, she embraced you as a part of her large, extended family. She was one of the most authentic, ethical human beings anyone had the good fortune to know. Wendy was an Associate Broker for Windermere for over 20 years. One of her greatest pleasures was receiving a card in the mail from a past client telling her how much they enjoyed their new home.
Wendy shared a love for travel with her Husband, David and her step-daughter Brooke. During their ten years together, they visited six continents. She was an unbelievably kind, generous, giving person. We watched her decorate her house every year for their Christmas party, gather up gifts hand-picked for everyone, and make all that delicious food. Everyone always had a wonderful time. She truly knew the meaning of Christmas, and had the spirit of giving inside her. A strong, selfless woman with a keen sense of humor, her determination is an inspiration to all of us.
Along with David & Brooke, Wendy is survived by her brothers, Marlow (Woody) & Andrea Wootton, Mike Wootton & Denise George, Mark & Laurie Wootton and sister Kathy & Bill Riley and their families.
Wendy will be buried at Sound View Cemetery on Marrowstone Island close to the cabin where she & David enjoyed spending time away. In lieu of flowers, please send remembrances' to Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.
