She is survived by her high school sweetheart and husband of 53 years, James Gerrard.  Daughter Tammy Gillard (Roy Watson Sr). Grandchildren, Brenden and Victoria Gillard all of Batavia.  She is also survived by her sister, Mary Kay (Frank) Schwerthoffer of Fort Mill, SC. Sister in law, Kathy Warren of Batavia.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Elvin and Agnes Warren, in laws, John and Irene Gerrard. Brother Elvin E “Gene” Warren Jr. Sister in law, Ginger (William) Stevens.

Wendy created many memories of summers at Silver Lake with her husband and daughter.  Her grandchildren were the light of her life, always supporting their endeavors.  In her later years of life she enjoyed corvette and golf cart rides with her husband.  She devoted much of her time studying God’s word and teaching Tuesday morning ladies Bible study.  Her motto from the beginning of her battle was “my momma didn’t raise no quitter.”  She stuck to her motto till the very end.
