Wendy RobertsROBERTS, Wendy Lynn (Sutherland) Roberts   -  Passed away on July 19, 2022, due to pancreatic cancer.

She was just 56 years old.

Wendy was born on July 5, 1966 to Terry and Hugh Sutherland in Toronto, Ontario. 

Wendy always said that the birth of her twin daughters, Alicia and Taylor, was the best moment of her life. 

Wendy loved children, which was a large part of why she chose to work at Make-A-Wish Canada.

Helping to promote life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses was one of her true joys in life. 

Wendy was brilliant, charming, passionate and funny. 

She lived life to the fullest — never forgoing an opportunity to laugh with family and friends.

We will miss her forever and will keep her memory alive in our hearts always. 

Wendy is survived by her father Hugh, husband André, twin daughters Alicia and Taylor, and three sister Sharon (Ross)

McDonald (Kelsey and James); Joanne (Ken) McDonald (Emma, Jessica and Nicolas); Kristine (Todd) McKenna (Courtney, Amy and Haley).

While Wendy’s family grieves her loss, they are choosing to remember Wendy in a way that honors her spirit. Her husband André and daughters invite family and friends to join them in a Celebration of Life Ceremony.

Visitation will take place at BARNES MEMORIAL FUNERAL HOME in Whitby on July 26 starting at 11AM, followed by a Celebration of Life in the chapel at noon.

In lieu of flowers, the family ask that  donations be made to Make-A-Wish Canada.

Funds raised will be used to grant a wish for a child with critical illnesses.
