Wendy Joleen Wilson

Wendy passed away peacefully at her home, surrounded by loved ones on April 26, 2012 at 58 years of age after a brave battle with cancer. Wendy was predeceased by her husband George in December 2011. She is survived by her parents Henry and Josey Gueulette, her brother Ron Gueulette (Leslie), nephew Justin (Andrea), niece Brooke, stepchildren Colleen (Darren), Bruce (Sandra), Dan (Janet), Brad (Theressa), and god daughter Krista (Mark)as well as many lifelong friends who were like family to her. Wendy was a lifetime resident of South Wellington who for many years managed the Dairy Queen on Nicol Street before starting a daycare from her home. Wendy leaves behind many former daycare kids who think of “Deedee” as their second mom and love her dearly. She loved the outdoors and camping; she and George spent many years together camping at Horne Lake and later at Macktush Creek, making many great friends along the way. Wendy also loved to garden and had one of the biggest vegetable gardens in South Wellington. She was a gentle soul who had the incredible ability to look on the bright side, no matter the situation. This wonderful lady’s laughter and sharp sense of humour brightened the days of those around her and she shared the gift of laughter to her final days. Wendy was taken from us far too soon; she will be missed more than words can express by all who knew her. The wonderful memories we all have of Wendy are precious and will live on with us. The family would like to send their heartfelt thanks to Dr. Chris Collins, the VIHA home care nurses, and the staff of Nanaimo Home Support for all they did to care for Wendy. A celebration of life will be held at a future date. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to cancer research or to the Canadian Red Cross.
