WENDY ANNE GRAHAM (WHITEHOUSE)
Born: May 18, 1951Send Flowers to the Family Offer Condolences or Memory
WENDY ANNE GRAHAM (nee WHITEHOUSE) It is with profound sadness that the family announces the passing of Wendy Anne Graham. Wendy will be lovingly remembered and greatly missed by her husband of 44 years, Robert (Bob), her daughter Laura and son-in-law Casey Fox and their children Madeline and Lincoln, her son Jeffrey, her brother Richard Whitehouse and his wife Grace, her sister Jane Hall and her husband Richard, her mother-in-law Nevone Graham, her sister-in-law Mary Graham-Stiny, her brother-in-law Thomas Graham and his wife Yolanda, and many nieces and nephews. Wendy was predeceased by her beloved mother Nita and her father Donald Whitehouse, her father-in-law Bud Graham, and her brother-in-law Herbert Stiny. Wendy was born in Winnipeg on May 18, 1951. She grew up in Riverview, attended Churchill High School and the Faculty of Education at the University of Manitoba. It was at the University of Manitoba that she met her husband Bob. Wendy and Bob were married on August 18, 1973. Wendy started her teaching career in 1972 at Chapman Elementary School in Charleswood. She was a dedicated teacher who was well liked by both her students and fellow staff. Everyone wanted to be in "Mrs. Graham's class". Wendy was a loving and caring wife and mother, and was both proud and supportive of Bob's legal career. In 1979 Wendy left teaching to raise her children, Laura and Jeff. During this time Wendy was the Returning Officer for Charleswood in the 1990 provincial election. In 1991 she assisted in administering the referendum vote in Headingley when it elected to separate from the City of Winnipeg. Her prime focus, however, remained her children and it was not until both Laura and Jeff reached school age that she returned to teaching. She retired with the birth of her first grandchild, Maddie in 2006. Wendy enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. She and Bob hosted many happy and memorable gatherings at their home. The family dogs Tess, and more recently Molly, had a special place in Wendy's heart. Above all, however, she treasured the time spent with her grandchildren Maddie and Lincoln whom she was so proud of. Wendy loved reading and doing her crossword puzzles. Vacations with family and friends were always enjoyed, especially her time spent at Detroit Lakes. During her later years Wendy suffered through many health issues but never lost her special smile nor her joy for life. A celebration of Wendy's life will be held on Friday, December 8 at 1:00 p.m. at Charleswood United Church, 4820 Roblin Blvd. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a charity that is meaningful to you.
