Wendy Renee Everett
Wendy Renee Everett, 41, of Cochranton passed away unexpectedly on September 11, 2018. Wendy was born on January 19, 1977 to George (Rod) and Shirley Everett. Although she was born with Down syndrome, she never allowed it to hinder her from stubbornly pursuing her goals.
She graduated from Cochranton High School in 1996, where she most enjoyed music class. After graduating high school Wendy attended the Crawford County Career & Technical Center, where she studied Early Childhood Development.
Wendy enjoyed musicals, Disney movies, fried egg sandwiches, pizza, and most importantly, the color BLUE. Her teeth brushing skills were second to none, and she loved toothpaste almost as much as the color blue. She enjoyed working for Darlene Hunter's daycare for 22 years, where she loved on and impacted dozens of children. Wendy never forgot a birthday of her friends, family, or her beloved daycare kids, past and present, and she was always willing to offer friendly reminders to get birthday cards into the mail. She made a difference in the lives of everyone who was blessed to know her.
Wendy is survived by her parents; two brothers, Brett Everett and his wife Heather of Glendale, AZ and Brian Everett of Cochranton. She is also survived by eight nieces and nephews; Kirsten, Kennedy, Kaylin, Nathaniel, Cassidy, Hannah, Carolina, and Christian Everett; uncles and aunts, Earl and Bonnie Brown, and Ronald and Frances Klingle, and two very special cousins, Shari Barickman and Lynnda Deane. Shari and Lynnda's children were also very special to her; Colten, McKenna, Leo and Jack. Wendy was preceded in death by her grandparents; Steve and Hazel Klingle, and George and Mary Everett as well as a niece, Cassandra Everett.
Visitation for family and friends will be at Cochranton Community Church, 3993 E. Church St, Cochranton, PA, on Saturday, September, 15 from 1:00 pm until 2:30 pm. The funeral will follow at 2:30 pm at the church with the Rev. Bill Ohl officiating. There will be a gathering for friends and family following the funeral. Interment will take place at America's Cemetery (Hillcrest Memorial Park) in Hermitage, PA where she will be buried close to her grandparents as well as the Avenue of 444 Flags.
In honor of Wendy and her deep love of all things blue and white, please feel free to wear Wendy's favorite colors to the service. Memorial donations can be made to the Cochranton PTO (Playground Fund), 225 S. Franklin Street Cochranton, PA 16314 or in Wendy's name to CARE, PO Box #552, Cochranton, PA 16314 (to support ongoing improvements to the playground at Lions Park).
