Wendy Yvette Myers was called back to her heavenly father on March 26, 2023. She passed peacefully surrounded by family at the James Cancer Center in Columbus, Ohio at 8:36pm after a short battle with cancer. She was 52 at the time of her passing.
Wendy entered this world on May 8th of 1970 to the loving parents of Eugene and Shirley Studer. She has 4 sisters: Christina, Anita, Tonya, and her twin sister Mendy, who sadly passed away when she was only 29. She also had 6 brothers, most notably being Kenny Studer and Jack Fuggett. Wendy is survived by her husband David T. Myers of 20 years, and her two sons: the eldest is Dalton Richards and his spouse Michael Dalton-Richards and her youngest son Dylan Richards. She was also the proud aunt of many nieces and nephews, with special mentions to Jordan and Houston Richards who were with her until the very end.
Wendy was a 1988 graduate of Ontario High School. After high school Wendy pursued a certificate in cosmetology. Her professional life consisted of cutting hair, freight dispatching, commercial cleaning, and finally worked as a STNA for various health agencies around the Richland County area.
Wendy resided in Mansfield Ohio for most of her life. Her hobbies included thoroughly cleaning her house, sitting in the sun as often as the weather would allow, playing euchre, and most importantly spending time with her family and pets while playing music. Her favorite music included but was not limited to: Bob Segar, Cher, Janis Joplin, and Aretha Franklin. She also enjoyed fishing with her husband David, although she was the amateur angler, she always seemed to catch more than him.
Wendy was many things in her life: an incredible mother, a great wife, the aunt and sister that most people would dream of and the rock that you could lean on time and time again. Whether it was a strong cup of coffee, or a cold beer. A shoulder to cry on or just a reminder of who you are, it didn't matter. She would be there.
If Wendy could leave us with anything it would be this: your family is the only real thing in this life. Money, possessions, and property come and go but the relationships you have in life always stay with you. Always remind people of your love for them and when life gets tough, drop your shield and fight with both hands.
