Wendy (Christian) Duff

Our beloved sister Wendy Duff left us unexpectedly but peacefully on May 13th.  Wendy had a huge loving heart of gold.  She would give to anyone and loved everyone, putting  a smile on the faces of all!  Her love for family was portrayed endlessly.  Wendy had a love for nature which could be seen in her drawings and doodles.

Preceded in death by a mere five weeks was the love of her life, James Francis Duff (Jim).  In addition were both sets of parents, George & Betty Christian, Jack & Kay Duff, Susie Duff, John Duff as well as her beloved “Nonny”.   Wendy left behind her siblings Laura Christian, Doug (Ginny) Christian, Linda (Dennis) Miller and Brad Christian as well as in-laws Kathy, Tom (Pam) Duff, Anne (Bob) Dorneker , Margaret (Will) Walsh, Mary (Jim) Arey, Patty (Bob) Marino, Bob Duff and many nieces, nephews and friends.  Wendy encountered MANY in her short 61 years on earth and will be sorely missed.

A Celebration Of Life will take place on Sunday July 21 from 1:00-4:00 pm at Clarkson Park, 1950 New Willow Rd., Northfield IL.  We welcome all to join us in celebrating the life of our beloved Wendy (“Wads”).
