  • I worked with Wendy for 25 years and we had some fun and memorable times during those years. I will miss her and my condolences go out to Les, Jeff and Jennifer and the rest of her family.

  • I am truly sorry for your loss. Although I vaguely remember Wendy from years ago, I was a neighbour to Les for several years when growing up as children. I recall Les writing on facebook about his loving wife and mother of his children and I was shocked to read online today that his partner for years had passed away. My prayers go out to you Les and to your family for this sad loss. RIP Wendy, you will always be loved by many. Marilyn Fox-Calhoun

  • Wendy was my very first customer when the restaurant opened last year, and she was also most definitely my favourite customer. She was kind enough to introduce her colleagues to me and helped my business grow, and I’ve been very grateful to have her coming all the time. I’m shocked this afternoon when I got the call from Chevrolet about the sad news, and please accept my deepest condolence. Wendy, you’ll be loved by everyone here forever.
