I worked with Wendy for a year when we were both with Newbury Living. She was a very kind lady and I was saddened to hear the news of her passing. My heart goes out to all of her family and friends.

Wendy was my aunt. We both have severe Migraines and bonded over that. She was an amazing person and cared so much about everyone else. I just wish she hadn't gotten so depressed and was kept a secret.

I shall celebrate every life that was in some way dedicated to the Stout Family. Scott told me of a great force in Wendy, being the extra hand when needed. Strength and honor in this time of grief.
