the Star Throwers Charity Shop which she was
instrumental in establishing
My friend, our friend, will be deeply missed at Star Throwers. Everybody knew her and when somebody new came through the door they invariable recognised Wendy from somewhere in their past.
As Events Organiser for Star Throwers she was a whizz: organised, creative, extremely hard working and a poster/flyer making genius!
Wendy was a lady of many talents. Her jams and chutneys were delicious and always disappeared very quickly. She would often show us the wonderfully decorated birthday cakes she had made for family, of which the Dr Who themed ones were my favourite.
One of these people who was always doing something, Wendy was never still for very long. She was a keen gardener, grew veggies, swam, played tennis, watched tennis, and knew a lot about tennis (always helpful when trying to follow Wimbledon!). I still remember every Wednesday we also used to discuss which book she was reading for her book club, of which she was an active member. Wendy was just so interesting and a great pleasure to spend time with.
My friend was kind, funny, clever, thoughtful, helpful, always upbeat, generous and of course brave. Although she is no longer with us she continues to inspire me.
I will miss her dearly. May she rest in peace but still keep an eye on us.
