MARTIN – Wendy Faye
December 26th, 1949 – June 13th, 2011

The family of Wendy Martin sadly announce her sudden passing in Calgary on June 13, 2011. Predeceased by her mother Queenie. Wendy is survived by her loving husband Doug of 39 years, daughter Alana, and son Jonathan ( Christine ). She also leaves to mourn her father Percy, brothers Gary ( Wendy ) & Mark ( Carol ), and sisters: Judy, Lynn ( Lynn), Margo ( Lenny ), Debbie ( Ron ), and Mickey ( Irvin ). Wendy was born in Vulcan on December 26, 1949. She will be remembered for her unconditional love and support for her family. She revelled in each and every accomplishment of her children from their birth to date. She will also be remembered for the generosity and kindness that she extended to her friends, extended family, co-workers, and everyone she encountered. Wendy’s huge heart, infectious laugh, and caring spirit touched everyone who knew her. She recently retired after 25 years of proud employment at Mount Royal University, where she was honored to have worked with an incredible group of people who she valued as co-workers and friends. A Celebration of Wendy’s Life will be held at The Canadian Danish Club, 727 – 11 Avenue S.W., Calgary on Saturday June 18, 2011 at 1:00 P.M. In lieu of flowers, donations in Wendy’s memory may be made directly to the Tom Baker Cancer Centre, 1331-29 Street N.W., Calgary, Alberta T2N 4N2 or www.albertacancer.ca or the charity of your choice.

    sends her sincere condolences and commiserates with Doug, who is familiar to me through Wendy’s conversation about her beloved husband, and all the family for their immense loss. With blessings.

    I was shocked and deeply saddened to hear of Wendy’s death. I still cannot believe that such a vibrant personality, so loved by so many, has left us. Tears are streaming down my face as I write this–Wendy was simply the best secretary Mount Royal University ever had. I loved her.
    My heart goes out to her family and close friends at this tragic time.

    So sorry I can’t attend the Saturday service but unfortunately I will be in Vancouver.

    I was so sorry to read about Wendy’s passing. I have such fond memories of her during our time raising teenagers together. Wendy was so caring and giving. I appreciate how wonderful Wendy was and so helpful during difficult times( like the loss of my mom). My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time. Wendy was a amazing mom, wife, neighbor and friend.
