It is with great sadness the family of Wendy Findlay announce her passing on Monday, April 22nd, 2024, surrounded by her family, after a brief but courageous battle with cancer at the age of 71 years.

She was predeceased by her parents Florence and Clifford.  Wendy will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 51 years, Gord; children, James (Amanda) and Tammy (Chris); sibling, Jo (Barry); grandchildren: Brandon (Jessica), Logan, Landon, Katlyn, Alaina, and Hayden; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and other family members and friends.

Wendy was born and raised in Moose Jaw, SK and married Gord, the love of her life, in 1973.  Their life was filled with consistent sarcasm, laughter and a deep love for one another.  They had two children together and moved to Daisy Crescent in 1981, where they remained making numerous lifelong friends.

Wendy loved spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren.  She was known for her talent with gardening and her yard became a beautiful backdrop to many events over the years including weddings, anniversaries, and family functions.

Wendy’s early career was with the Royal Bank where she made numerous friends and when she retired from there in the early 2000’s, she found her true passion in quilting.  What began as a hobby turned into a business and a successful career as a long-arm quilter. 

Wendy will be remembered for her kindness and generosity, and she would often gift someone with a quilt for celebrations, fundraisers, trying times, or illness.

In 2010, one of Wendy’s greatest loves came into her life, her dog Charlie.  Charlie rarely left Wendy’s side and would lay under her machine while she quilted, just to be close to her.

Her family can attest that she faced the last difficult months of her life with a sense of humor, grace, unwavering strength and stubbornness.  Wendy was a true gem and will be sadly missed.

The family would like to send a special thank you to the staff, nurses and doctors at the Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital. Your kindness did not go unnoticed.
