Johnston Wendy HinesOHNSTON, Wenda Lou 'Wendy' (Hines) - In Lowbanks with Mom, after a long and courageous battle with cancer, on July, 8th, 2018.

Beloved daughter of Audrey and the late Tom Hines. Cherished sister of Gary Hines and his wife Yvonne and Mindy and her husband Rob Veldhuizen.

Loving aunt of Scott and Tracey Hines, Jenn and Jason Spencer, Sara Veldhuizen and Robin Bowen, and Amy and Terry Martin.

Great-aunt of Cody and Eric Hines, Reagan and Charlotte Spencer, and Sophie and Samuel Martin. Forever friend of Darleen Bucsis.

Wendy lived in Smithville. She worked at Maple Manufacturing until her retirement. She was an avid reader, enjoyed her book club and tai chi class - and never drove by a good yard sale!

Wendy was, and we will be, forever grateful to so many - but especially to her home care nurse, Dawn for her extraordinary care and kindness; to the volunteer drivers who helped with daily trips to Hamilton for treatment, to EMS  and the ER staff at Haldimand War Memorial Hospital and to the Rykses who were there when we needed them most. Your kindness is what made all the other crap bearable.

Please join our family for A Celebration of Wendy's Life, to share some memories over a light lunch on July 25th at 1:00, at the Lowbanks Community Centre, 2633 North Shore Drive, Lowbanks.

If desired, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated by the family. Arrangements entrusted with Ballard Minor funeral home, Dunnville.
