Wendy was a very opinionated person and she didn’t mind telling anyone how she felt. When you met Wendy, you either loved her or hated her and she didn’t care which one it was. She was a leader. She took charge and telling people what to do was one of her favorite things. Everyone who knew her knew she was mouthy, stubborn and loud (boy, was she loud!!) Although she had a big mouth, she loved just as big. Her kids and Timmy, her boyfriend, were her world. She loved Kylie and Chance with all her heart and soul. Timmy was the love of her life. And Timmy’s mom, Virginia Finn, also held a special place in Wendy's heart.
Wendy was a blessing in this life and after, not only to those who knew her but to complete strangers. Even though her death was tragic and untimely, Wendy saved numerous lives by donating her organs. To honor Wendy, the hospital staff and workers lined the hall and lit lanterns as she made the Heroes Journey to the Mid America Transplant Center to give the gift of life and hope. To the end, she was still leading the charge and telling people what to do. She may never know the lives she saved or the lives that will go on to proclaim the Gospel because of her selfless sacrifice. But we will. We love you, Wendy Lynn.
