Wendy was born on December 25, 1947 in Welland, Ontario to loving parents, Stephen and Doris Toth. The family then moved to Regina where Wendy grew up and went to school.

Her interests were going cruising, taking road trips to Las Vegas and doing needle work. She also enjoyed going to Scotland to see her husband’s home and family. Wendy was kind and loving. She was also a giving person. Wendy was reserved in her ways which some people took the wrong way.
