I learned of Wendy's death from our Message Forum.  Yesterday (1/12/14), I attended a mini-reunion at Laura Spilker's home and we remenisced about our dear friend, Wendy.  I was so drawn to her, as many were, by her quiet grace and poise, and a truly spiritual quality unlike anyone else I knew. She was a loving and devoted friend and I consider myself fortunate to have known her for the all-too-brief time I did.

it has been difficult for me to admit that wendy has died. we were close friends during high school and then lived nearby in the bay area for 7 years with our families. we continued to speak and visit. on my last visit in june i conducted an interview with wendy for the library of congress story project . hopefully you might come across her on pbs. i never knew what an amazing, witty, funny story teller she indeed was. she spoke about the anti-semitism after she moved to wyncote, her life at antioch, her two marriages, the first which led to 2 sons, one of whom is a restauranteur in oregan and the other currently a house husband now in singapore. she also had a son with sheridan her 2nd husband. this son developed assberger's.  wendy encouraged, supported and fought for him helping cody ultimately to graduate san jose state. wendy fought equally hard to outsmart her lung cancer tho she never expected to live the 5 years after her diagnosis that she did. wendy obtained her social work degree in san diego and worked in the city foster care and adoption agency in oakland. she was caring, loving, giving of herself. i miss her and i love her.

Wendy was a sweet girl, fun to be with.  She was very much a self-reliant soul, and a bit of an agitator for liberal political causes in the years before it was fashionable.  Her kind of attention to the world at large and her concern for other people's welfare made her seem very mature.  I am sure that we are all poorer for her loss.
