Wendy was very health conscience and an advocate of homeopathic healing. A wonderful cook, she enjoyed shopping for organic ingredients and vitamin supplements. Wendy had a great appreciation for the outdoors and thrived in nature. She was just as content camping overnight in a tent as “glamping” in style in her daughter’s fifth wheel. Wendy loved to clean and kept her customer’s homes immaculate. She was very mechanically inclined could seemingly fix anything. Although Wendy may have arrived late (as usual!), she never missed her grandchildren’s sporting events. She also enjoyed playing board games and putt-putt golf alongside them.
A woman of faith, Wendy loved Jesus with her whole heart. She was a member of Christ Family Church in Brownstown Township, Michigan. Wendy frequently read her Bible and other Christian books. A music lover, she enjoyed contemporary Christian artists and worship hymns. Wendy recently received her minister’s license through I Am Church in Rockwood, Michigan where she frequently attended services. She was sensitive to souls in need and freely shared her faith with others.
