I was saddened to hear of Wendy’s passing. She was always so positive and full of life. From the days when she loaded up the family station wagon and took us swimming almost daily at Tod Park up to the time I would see her in the office it was such a great experience. Rest in peace, Wendy.

I was so sorry to hear about Wendy‘s passing. I worked with her for many years at the Merrillville school transportation department and she was a sweetheart. She always had a smile for everyone. I know she will be missed.
