Wendy Susan Wood, 59, of Plymouth Meeting, PA, a devoted mother, wife, daughter, sister and podiatrist departed this world on May 2, 2021. Wendy was born to Arthur and Barbara Wood (nee Musselman), and was raised in a family of four in Lafayette Hill, PA. Wendy was an outstanding student and had high aspirations of helping others in the medical field. She was an honors graduate from Delaware Valley College and later went on to earn a post-graduate degree from the Pennsylvania College of Podiatric Medicine. She completed a two-year residency at the Giuffre Medical Center and Girard Medical Center in Philadelphia, PA. In 1990, Wendy reopened Arch Road Family Podiatry in Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania, where she treated patients for 31 years. Along the way, at age 17, Wendy would discover her life-long passion for travel. It began when she participated in the Youth for Understanding study-abroad program during her Senior year at Plymouth Whitemarsh High School. She chose to visit a rural farm in Denmark, and quickly became fluent in Danish. Her enduring relationship with her friends and host family there lasted a lifetime. In 1991, at the recommendation of her late friend Francine, Wendy would meet the love of her life on a blind date, Mark Alan Bennett. After getting married in 1992, Wendy was rejoiced with the birth of her two sons: Bryan in 1993 and Jeffrey in 1995. As a foursome, they began globetrotting to better understand the world around them. During her travels and detailed trip planning, Wendy would go on to visit all seven continents and experience numerous cultures. She would share her travel stories with others through her scrapbooking, which became a favored hobby of hers. Wendy was known by all for her compassion and kindness; two virtues which shone through in all aspects of her life. Her empathy was palpable to her patients and family alike. Whether you wanted to be supported and loved or just beaten at Scrabble; Wendy was there. Wendy is survived by her husband, Mark, her sons, Bryan and Jeffrey, her brother, Douglas, her sisters, Sandra and Jennifer, her mother, Barbara, and beloved dog, Buster. Visitation at 10 a.m., Funeral Service at 12 noon, Wednesday, May 5th, at West Laurel Hill Funeral Home, Inc. 225 Belmont Ave., Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004. Interment immediately following at West Laurel Hill Cemetery.

I only learned of Wendy's passing this evening from my mother, who had heard this sad news from my sister. I would like to say to the Wood family, from far beyond the orbit of Wendy's life and from many, many years removed, that my sister Pat, my mother Jean, and myself are genuinely sorry to have heard this news. My memories of Wendy are only from my childhood, though I would hear of her as many of us would through her work from time to time throughout adulthood. Your family was the cornerstone family of that beautiful, safe, and somewhat isolated little neighborhood on Wagner Road many years ago. Wendy was older than me, but even as children my memories of her are of her kindness. We - the other kids in the neighborhood - knew as well that she was a good student, and she was respected. I did not know until my mother had shared such information in the phone call I had with her this evening that Wendy had traveled so extensively. I did not know that she had been blessed with her own family. I knew none of these things. I was only a childhood neighbor from 50 years ago, but I am still very sorry for all of you: Doug, Sandy, Jennifer, you Mrs. Wood, and of course Wendy's husband and children whom I never knew. I'm very, very sorry.

Sincerely,
David Lawrence

My sincere sympathy to Wendy's loved ones, family and friends. Dr. Wendy Wood was one of a kind...you looked forward to your appointment with her. She took care of your feet, listened to your woes, made you feel better....all at one time for one fee....and you walked out of her office feeling like a new person.....all while she continued to cope with her own medical issues. Wendy will be missed by so many. I so enjoyed my friendship with her. May she rest in peace.
