But a real big heart she truly had. If she could give you the shirt off her back, she would. She loved taking are of the elderly. “Wendy” had such a passion for helping those in need. You could always depend on her for anything. She loved to cook, sing and dance; enjoying life. Her love for her soulmate and children was a bond that was unbreakable. A wonderful woman who will be missed and loved always.
