I had the pleasure of working with Wendy for several years as a partner at Toyota Motor North America.
I found Wendy to be such a calm and patient soul who truly knew excellent customer service and practiced it in her career daily.
The last time I saw Wendy was at Earl Stuart Toyota. I remember giving her a big hug and she was taking care of about five guests at the time.
The world is a better place with Wendy having influenced so many of us.
Her smile and gentle spirit will forever be with me as a wonderful memory of a class act. Miss you, Wendy. God bless your family.

I worked with Wendy at Southeast Toyota Distributors, I'll never forget her. She was super friendly yet humble. I'll never forget the ride up the elevator one day, she was back at work on Monday morning after just having had her baby on Friday. That "baby" is now her 13-year-old son. My heart goes out to him and to Wendy's family and extended family. I just heard this sad news after dropping off my car at Earl Stewart Toyota and asked for her. What a heartbreak . . . everyone loved Wendy.
