Wendy Lou Wiles (Nee: Smith) has passed away at the age of 70 years after a battle with cancer. Born on May 7, 1952 in Peterborough Ontario she is survived by her mother Roberta Searle, her husband Gerald (Gerry), daughters Tammy (Keith) Hansson, and Julie (Daryll) Miller, grandson Matther (Chariti) Wiles, brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews and many extended family.

Wendy was an incredible person. Her indominable will was only overshadowed by her ability to astound one and all with her strength of will and fiery determination to never let life's circumstances hold her back. Paralyzed by a distracted driver in 1982 she outlived everyone who quoted 10 years or less life expectancy. She enjoyed many hobbies, which the whole extended family benefitted from including egg decorating, window painting sugar eggs, flower and cake decorating, plus all of her work as a 4-H volunteer for both daughters and community.

Wendy was a force of nature and an example to us all of how to squeeze the best out of life from the worst of circumstances.

A celebration of Wendy's life will be held a later date.

  4. You’re Mom held a special spot in my heart. From the time I first met your parents I felt a bond. Your mom always had smiles and laughter and was up to some kind of shenanigans. I’ll never forget how she hoisted herself up on your counter at your home and was painting I believe for you. I was amazed at her determination. Through all that I believe she held on to her faith and she rests in the arms of Jesus now. Take comfort in knowing you will see her again and so will I. Love you forever Mom
