She designed both residential and commercial properties and through her clients, she made many life long friends. She was very passionate about her career and worked diligently for every client of hers. Proof of her work ethic is in the fact that during her many months in the hospital in Texas, she had her laptop and continued to connect with her client’s needs.

From early on, Wendy had an outgoing personality, never met a stranger and had a great sense of humor. The nurses and doctors in Texas could attest to this as they cared for her during many months in the hospital. She had a multitude of friends who supported her through her long and difficult journey….a journey she traveled with unbelievable strength and bravery. Several of these friends were her caregivers during long stays in Texas.

Wendy and her family are forever grateful for their love and support during difficult times. A true blessing in Wendy’s life was the birth of her first grandchild..Miss Josie Elizabeth. Miss Josie brought many wonderful moments to her “Glammy” during difficult times.

Wendy was her mother’s “Favorite redhead” and a true “TT” until the Lord called her home. A celebration of life visitation will be held on Monday, November 29, 2021 from 3-8pm at Preston Pruitt Spurlin Funeral Home. www.preston-pruitt.com
