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.
I am sending condolences to everyone. The love Wendy had for her family was always so apparent. There are no words to express how sad I feel. Life is sometimes so unfair and hard to understand. I am praying for peace of heart for all in this very difficult time.
Wendy was a gem! She will be missed by so many. Praying for her family and friends.
Robby, we are so sorry to hear about the loss of your sister. Your are in our thoughts and prayers. God bless you and your family at this difficult time but please remember to lean on the Lord He is there for you all.

Im am so sorry for your loss. Wendy was a great person and will be missed. Thinking of you all and lots of prayers during this difficult time.
I used to babysit Dustin, Devin and Taylor. I went to Texas with Wendy and the kids to babysit on vacation!! She was always the young fun mom. When I knew her she was such a fun loving person!!! She was always smiling and always laughing and having fun. Although we have drifted very far apart because her kids grew up and no longer needed a babysitter.. she moved away.. and so did I, her friends and family will be in my thoughts and prayers. I am so sorry for all of your loss!
