In loving memory of Wendy Lorraine Yilmaz who sadly passed away on 25th June 2018.
Wendy was born on 27th August 1962 in Wrexham, to Alma and Derek Wood. She is survived by her sister Jo, brothers Nick and Andrew and her two sausage dogs, Syd and Roxy, whom she adored and will now live with Jo.
Wendy's hometown was Chester in the North West although she moved around the country a lot with her work and finally re-located to Nottingham as a central base for the various offices she would visit.
Wendy was a dynamic, funny, friendly, glamorous (learnt from her mother), kind and generous woman with a no nonsense, forthright character and spirit for living! Due to her warm nature, Wendy made friends with so many people throughout her lifetime and appreciated the love and support she received from all her family and friends.
Wendy was a natural born leader and forged a highly successful career in the newspaper, print and publishing industry before finally opening her own independent business consultancy in Nottingham. Throughout her career, she influenced so many people, many of who she remained good friends with.
Wendy was diagnosed with Inflammatory Breast cancer in 2013 and sadly this returned in July 2017. She fought a very long and difficult battle with cancer however throughout, she always remained positive by raising awareness and doing mini vlog updates. Wendy inspired so many people with her ‘red lippy days’, the days when she felt well enough to do what she had done her entire life 'get up, make-up and show up'
Wendy's departure leaves a huge void in the lives of many people. She was loved.
