Wendy attended Avondale High School and Oakland Community College. She was a Broker for RE/MAX Essential and Assistant to the President at Robin Hood Container, Inc. She attended First Baptist Church of Carolina Beach. Wendy was an active member in her community who spent endless hours volunteering and making a difference in every life she touched. Family, friends and the outdoors were Wendy's passion and delight. She enjoyed fishing, traveling, hunting, exercising, cooking, entertaining others and decorating. We were blessed to learn many valuable lessons from Wendy during her 40 years, among them were: to give of one's self and leave the world a better place. Wendy was full of life, passionate, and truly had a servant's heart. She could and would talk to anyone, and when you were in her company you wanted to stay. She will always be remembered for her courage during difficult times. She laughed often and loved much. Wendy was adored as a daughter, sister, wife, niece, cousin, and friend. She loved her family and the world. But more than anything else, she loved her husband, Robbie and loyal companion, Hershey. She was reunited with her mother, Sharon Elizabeth Shorter-Bridges. She is survived by her husband, Robin Whitley Hood, II and her loyal companion, Hershey of Carolina Beach, her dad, Joseph Stephen Bridges of Wilmington, a brother Matthew Stephen Shorter-Bridges of Wilmington, sister-in-law and husband, Brian and Rene' Honeycutt of Benson, five nephews and two nieces.
