Wendy worked at various jobs over the years from being a waitress, cleaner and a live-in companion. Wendy had a passion for painting and was very good at creating many beautiful pictures over the years. She could always find a use for everything and did not believe in waste; she would take old items and restore them. She loved spending quality time with family and friends and was always willing to help in any way she could in her community or her family. She will be greatly missed by all those who love her, but her job here on earth is done.
The family would like to thank all the staff, nurses, care givers and doctors who gave Wendy such wonderful care at the Heart of the Valley Long Term Care Centre.
