Wendy was the most hard working, generous and kind people that I have known. She took an interest in me when I was an awkward teen and treated me with a genuine concern and interest that one does not often get to see. Her love for Billy and the girls was always evident, as they created a beautiful family. Years go by and you lose touch, but I will always remember her with love and gratitude. My deepest sympathy to Billy and the girls. This will be a great loss to bear.

I can only imagine what Billy and the girls are going through. Wendy was a unique and talented individual. She was bright and had a colorful gift of gab that brightened our day. We were so happy when she got out of the hospital after battling the virus. She loved people and particularly her family, her friends and her former classmates in Plymouth. We will miss her spirited phone calls and hilarious emails. Bless you Wendy- you touched many lives.
