Wendy Sweeney, 81, went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, November 22, 2020. She was born on March 11, 1939. Wendy was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother.
She was a graduate of Marion Harding High school Class of 1958.
She worked for the GC Murphy company and while working she met the Love of her life, John Sweeney and got married in 1959.
Wendy was also employed by American Stationary in Peru, IN where she worked until she retired in 2004.
Wendy’s greatest joy in life was being with her family. Wendy was known for her excellent culinary skills and that was evident during the holidays as she loved cooking and baking for friends, neighbors, and family. While she had several hobbies she enjoyed gardening, collecting recipes, and loving her cats. After she became a grandmother she loved spending her weekends with her grandkids and renting scary movies and baking cookies with them as well. If Wendy could share something with all of us today it would be to hold onto the memories and the good times you make in life.
