Once the kids completed high school, Wendy made the move to Livingston, where she was introduced to Rick Young. They would marry and have spent their days together since.

Wendy so enjoyed the simple pleasure of being with her family. She loved her dogs, going camping, was deeply devoted to her church and faith, she enjoyed spending time reading and collected a great many books, she also collected tea pots and Beatrice Potter figurines. Wendy was artistic as well, she did glass blowing making her own beads for projects.

We will remember her for her strong will, her independence and as our caretaker. Missing you is so hard to do, but knowing you have peace in Heaven is a blessing to all of us.
