Our beloved Wendy L. Brown, 48, of Clayton, NC passed away unexpectedly on October 8, 2021. She was born on January 23, 1973 to Lorraine Spooner and Herbert Cook of New Jersey.
It's important to remember the goodness of Wendy's life and, in particular, the goodness she brought to this world. She was sunlight in the lives of those who knew and loved her. You would want to be around her because her presence was always warming and cheerful. You felt welcomed. You felt loved. You felt your stomach hurt from laughter.
For anyone who knew Wendy, it was not uncommon for her to burst into fits of laughter. She loved to laugh and that laugh was absolutely infectious. She enjoyed life and entertaining those around her with some of the best home cooked food because she loathed that you would ever eat. She had a knack for creating her own tasty recipes out of random ingredients in the kitchen, and the end result was always fantastic. Wendy would even be the person to help clean up at the end of the night. That was just who she was.
Wendy's alluring smile would light up any room. She was an intimidatingly beautiful woman yet always had a way of helping others feel comfortable and at ease. Her caring heart and down-to-earth personality always shined through. Though she'd never admit it, Wendy was truly a remarkable woman. Her passing has shattered the hearts of so many she has left behind. Her memory will live on in the hearts and minds of those who knew her, but we will forever miss the warm sunlight from her presence. The world has been made dimmer.
Wendy is survived by her love of 21 years, Jeffrey Brown and their two children, Tori and Isaac Brown of Clayton, NC. Besides Wendy's mother and father, she also leaves behind a sister, April Stasinchak, a brother, Walter Daniel Stasinchak, and five nieces and nephews all from upstate New York. She is survived by her Uncle Terry and Aunt Diane Petroni and their two children, TJ and Angela, from New Jersey. In addition, Wendy also leaves behind a grandmother, Clara Taylor, from New Jersey.
