It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Wendy Gross Giardina. Wendy was born on May 3, 1952 and sadly left us on October 13, 2023. She was 71 years old.
Wendy was an insightful, caring, intelligent, and humorous individual. She was there for the people she cared about. Wendy lived a simple life after the tragic passing of her husband, Michael Giardina, in 2017. She struggled through this time but was still able to find some semblance of peace. We pray that she has now found eternal peace. Left to carry on her memory are a circle of friends, her church community, whom she embraced, and, of course, her dogs. Her dogs were literally her life. She appreciated the unconditional love they gave her and she reciprocated it back to them tenfold. She had a deep appreciation for connections, was always willing to join in the antics, and was deeply compassionate to those hurting. This will be the memory we keep! In honor of Wendy and “Wendy’s Words”:
She kept her circle small
She kept her friends few,
but if she loved you, you knew it
and she’d look out for you.
Her dogs were her world
She’d take such great care
She appreciated life
And felt death was unfair,
As we say goodbye to you, Wendy,
We pray this isn’t the end
And we’ll meet again somehow
We will miss you, dear friend!
