WALLACE, Wendy Jean Wallace Obituary | Print |

WALLACE, Wendy Jean (Gleed) -

Giving thanks for Wendy Wallace, aged 71, who slipped to the other side in the early hours of June 4th, 2014 as dawn kissed the horizon and songbirds began their morning chorus.

Daughter of the late Francis Jean and James Jarvis Gleed, widow of Alasdair Gordon Bruce Wallace, mother of Elizabeth and Margaret Wallace, sister of Peter Gleed and Susan Morton.

Dearest Wendy. Tender heart, Seeker, Artist, Woman of grace. Creative campfire cook and nature lover, she rejoiced in the dip of the paddle and the glide of the canoe, was drawn to the bleached grasses and driftwood, and made masterpieces of seed pods, dreams and fragile ephemera. Her meditation was the knotted tree, the wrinkled face; her paintbrush and charcoal captured the red of dogwood, the curve of the icy stream, the green serenity of the marsh. She both loved life-drawing and found life through drawing.

Wendy danced her joy, her pain, her hope, her life; she drummed with all her heart. She clowned, painted, sang and danced her way to happiness, bravely facing her own darkness to emerge into light. She made piñatas for grandchildren, entered their wonder, absorbed herself in their world. She cradled the broken and fragile in a heart of compassion, trusting resilience, grasping hope.

Wendy sought to listen well to her family and friends, to creation, to her heart, to the mystery of life. Fondly remembered, she enriched us all with her gentle legacy of love.

Her ceremony of life will be held in Peterborough on Thursday, June 26th.

Donations can be made to the Steven Lewis Foundation.
