Wendy was a true believer in God, she became a member of St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church as a young teen and did all that she could to serve the Lord. She loved singing gospel music in the choir, served as Deaconess and worked in the Women's Department. Wendy was known to be active in her church and the North Pacific Baptist Convention over the years. She also enjoyed baking, sewing and spending time with her family and Pomeranians Ginger and Sabre.
