Wendy's Guestbook

Carol Partland

My sincerest condolences to Wendy's sister, nieces and close friends. I will always remember Wendy as an avid reader. We exchanged many books as we had the same taste and had many discussions about what we had both read.
I appreciated her wonderful smile, unique laugh and her love of music.
May all the wonderful memories bring comfort to you though these difficult times.

Wendy was almost always the first person in the office in the morning and the first to greet me with a warm smile and "Good morning, dear!" when I and others came in in the morning. She was dedicated to the school and her role for decades and would remember many of the student names and profiles of the students she supported. She was often smiling and it was hard not to laugh yourself when you would hear her infectious laugh. I miss you Wendy.

My deepest condolences to Wendy's family. I worked with Wendy in the admissions office since 2018 at Schulich and for much of that time, had an office directly across from her workspace. Wendy was a wonderful colleague and a daily source of levity and joy in the office. She was incredibly hard working and showcased a true care for the well being of our students in her work. She was always willing to go out of her way to be helpful and to take the time to share her knowledge with her colleagues.

We called the area where Wendy worked "Wendy-ville" and I'd often spend my coffee breaks interrupting her reading of a novel to try to make her laugh. She was a wonderful person and colleague. I was so sad to hear of the news of her passing and she will be greatly missed.

I spent over 10 of my 14 years at Schulich beside Wendy P or Peggy Weever. There were so many inside jokes and discussions about TV shows (if Wendy recommended a show I was watching it, who else could get me into watching Game of Thrones and Dexter). I used to tease her that she made us look bad, because you can't compare how hard she worked to the rest of us...we just weren't that fast! She loved her sister, nieces and pets so much, I have missed hearing her tell Gayle she loved her at the end of every conversation and hearing stories about how the girls were doing.

Gayle, Lisa, and Nicole, Wendy will be missed at Schulich and by me. I send you all the strength and hugs in the world!

Wendy was such an important part of the Schulich Student Services team when I was at Schulich. I remember her smile and willingness to help students and colleagues, especially at some of our very hectic moments.

Wendy was a very pleasant person and I enjoyed my interactions with her whenever I had a chance to be of assistance at work. She will truly be missed. My deepest condolences to her family. May she rest in peace.

Wendy came to us right out of high school. I think she was only 18. I remember her quietly working away in her corner space in the front office, making sure that documents were matched and files were put together for admission assessment in the old Faculty of Administrative Studies Building. She was a integral part of our department. While the tasks changed over the years and she matured her diligence and quiet support never changed. She always knew that if I could not find what I was looking for.. she could! She would give me a minute to get back to my office and bring it to me ... with a little smile on her face! She was a loyal member of our team always very proud of her part in our mission. She will be missed by many. I send my condolences to her family and to all those who knew her and worked with her over the years.

My sincere condolences to Wendy’s family. I am saddened by the loss, however, I would like to remember Wendy for what she was - a warm hearted and caring individual, and an incredibly hard working and dedicated colleague.

As a fellow early riser, Wendy was usually the first person I saw each day in SSIR. She regularly greeted me with a smile and her contagious laugh, and was always so very kind to me. We worked quite closely together in admissions, and I always admired Wendy's commitment to her job and continuous learning as the role evolved over time. She was, simply, a lovely person, and I will miss her. My condolences to her family and friends.

I've known Wendy for more than 10 years. When I started working at Schulich, we became friends. It was such a joy to work with her. I will never forget the warmth her smile brought to the office each and every day. Wendy is a very lovely and sweet person! She is always willing to help people whenever you ask. Her smile and a great sense of humor will be deeply missed.

Wendy will be in my heart and memory forever!

In sympathy,
Wendy you are greatly missed for all your personal and professional contribution to the SSIR team. Your smile, laughter and friendship will live on in my heart. Rest in peace!

Wendy was one of the first people I worked with and beside (our desks were adjacent) at the beginning of my career at Schulich.
We would joke about The Office and how there were similarities with our office. She would tell me about her love of Viggo Mortensen and I would be amiss if I didn't mention her infectious giggle.
You will be missed, Wendy. I hope you are at peace.

Jessica Morgan

My condolences to Wendy's family and all of us at Schulich who knew and loved her. We will miss Wendy greatly. She was always the first one to greet you in the morning on arrival with kind words and a smile. She was so helpful whenever I had a question or needed her support. She was such a wealth of knowledge and was always so supportive when I came to her for help. She will be so missed.

You will be missed.
