She found joy in simple pleasures, whether it was the thrill of a bingo game, the serenity of camping trips, or the creativity of transforming ordinary items into something extraordinary. Her kitchen was a place of warmth and delicious aromas, where she poured her love into baking. Wendy had a heart as vast as the sky, always ready to offer comfort, support, and laughter to those around her.

Her affection extended beyond humans to her beloved fur babies, Lola, Brandy, and Misty, who brought her endless joy and companionship. Wendy’s passion for collecting miniatures reflected her appreciation for life’s intricacies and the beauty found in the smallest details.
