Turner, Oregon

Wanda Wendt, 81, passed quietly at home on December 4 in Turner. Wanda was born in Beechton, OK. She attended Turner Elementary and graduated Salutatorian from Cascade High School in 1953. She married George Pearson of Turner in 1955, who passed suddenly in 1958. As a young widow and mother of two, she earned her teaching degree from Oregon College of Education in 1963. That same year she married AlRoy Wendt of Grandview, WA. Al and Wanda lived and taught in Oregon and for the Department of Defense Dependents Schools in Japan and Germany for many years and loved every new adventure. Al passed in 1994 after 31 years of marriage.

Wanda was a talented pianist, a dedicated teacher and a loving wife, mother and grandmother. She loved to travel. She was proud of her Oklahoma roots. She treasured family and friends, adored her grandchildren and loved her God. She loved the sound of a piano, a slice of pie and sharing a good cup of coffee. She was kind, caring, funny and smart. We are all better for having known her. She was loved and will be missed.

Wanda is survived by daughter Debra Tripp of Turner, son Gene Wendt (Connie) of Olympia, WA, daughter Denise Wendt of Cottage Grove and daughter Nori Wendt Cash (Jay) of Roy, WA. She is also survived by four grandchildren – Tyler Wendt (Ashley) of Salem, Patrick Cash of Tacoma and Ian and Emma Cash of Roy, WA.
