    To all Wendy’s family. You have precious memories and so do we, of a caring and hard working girl. My family really enjoyed working with her as she helped us sell our sons house in November. (Curtis was 58 and died of cancer). Please enjoy those memories as that is all we have. Thanks, Mom and Dad, for
    raising such a nice person. Love to all. Patsy Miller

    I was searching for Wendy on the internet to attempt to reconnect with her and was very sad when I happened upon the fact that she has passed.

    I attended UND with Wendy and we were pretty close friends at that time. She was a fantastic person with a lovely spirit and always pleasant to everyone.

    My condolences to her family…

    Wendy helped me find my home in Front Royal. She also helped me get the same home rented when I relocated from Front Royal. She was a fantastic Lady. Always there to help and always pleasant. I was shocked when I ran across the obituary. I know she will be missed very much by her friends and family.
    My sincere condolences.
