This email from Jon Kidder was forwarded to me a few minutes ago by Caren Curry Cameron. I am truly saddened. Wendy was a HUGH part of our 1963 class, both when we attended SMHS, and long after as a very active member of our Alumni group. My condolences to both her and her family.
Dear Extended Friends,
We wanted you to know that Wendy Hammack Hunter passed away on Wednesday, May 24th at 8 pm. She died peacefully without pain and was surrounded by her family.
The service will be at 1 pm on Sunday, May 28th, and will be followed by a gravesite burial, and then a reception with light sandwiches all at the same location.
It will be an open casket funeral and people wishing to view her body prior to the service will be able to do so between noon and 1 pm. Individuals needing wheelchair assistance should bring their wheelchairs and others will be able to assist them.
The service will be held at:
Eternal Hills Memorial Park, Mortuary, and Crematory
1999 El Camino Real
Oceanside, California 92054-5754 US
In lieu of flowers, Wendy wanted people to know that if they wanted to do something in her honor, they could make a contribution to the PEO organization she was dedicated to, which focuses on stewarding philanthropy to support women’s education and advancement. In particular, Wendy wanted to support Cottey College, which is affiliated with PEO. You can click here for more information.
Prior to the service on Sunday at 1 pm, we are recommending that people eat lunch because the reception with food will be around 3 pm.
Wendy very much wanted the service to be a celebration, and following the main portion of the service, there will be an opportunity for family members and friends to say a few words in honor of her extraordinarily life.
