Wendy Irene Blanco

December 18, 1973 - January 17, 2014

Wendy Blanco age 40 joined her loved ones in Heaven on January 17, 2014. She was born on December 18, 1973 in Lima, Peru to Julio and Irene (Romani) Wong. Her dedication has always been to her husband of almost 15 years, her three beautiful girls, her Catholic faith and her friends and extended family.  Wendy was strong until the end never losing her faith even on some of the most painful days.   Thanks to so many of you, she was surrounded by family and friends.  Many times she was the one comforting those who were there to comfort her.  Her beautiful enduring spirit, and her deep love of Ignacio and the girls, is what we will always remember.  Wendy has touched so many people during her time with us including her friends from Saint Mark’s parish in Plano, Texas, Christ Renews His Parish (CRHP-8), Girl Scout troop, colleagues from Tektronix and countless friends from all over.  The love and support of her family and friends helped her with her transition and we would like to thank everyone.

I was not aware of Wendy's passing till now. I met Wendy when we were students at Collin College... back in the day it was Quad C. Wendy was always approachable, friendly, smart, and so sweet. I remember when she and Ignacio began dating and then got married at St. Marks. I lost touch with Wendy; however, thought of her often through the years. May God bless her family. Gwen Aguirre, November 10, 2015 I think Wendy was one of the sweetest and kindest persons I've ever met. It`s really sad she had to leave us so soon. I hope she'll still keep an eye on us from heaven, especially on her daughters. All my love to her and her family. Barbara Blanco, January 31, 2014 I was honored to have met and worked with Wendy, albeit briefly. I am saddened to hear of her passing. She was a beautiful and ALWAYS kind, gentle soul who I remember as always thoughtful of her family. May God bless her many times over in Heaven, her family, especially her husband and girls, and her friends. Deepest condolences to you all.

Barbara and George Vega, January 22, 2014 Wendy continues to be an inspiration to me about how much of a difference it can make to be calm and cheerful in the middle of a stress. You always wanted to work with her because she knew what was going on, and she was very attentive to the details. You always knew that she cared about all of it. It was a pleasure working with her, and her loss is felt keenly. Jay Cherry, January 21, 2014 I believe that You are an Angel now and you will continue to embrace and protect your loved ones with your beautiful wings and you will keep them together for ever. Ornella Walker, January 21, 2014 Goodbye Wendy. Unfortunately I didn't have the fortune of meeting you in person, but your smile and your big faith will remain in my heart for the rest of my life.

Olevia Taylor, January 20, 2014 Prayers and condolences to Wendy's husband and girls. I'm so truly saddened by your loss, words can not do it justice. Wendy was one of the nicest people I ever knew : she always had a smile and a kind word to say. Seeing her sparkle with the pride and love she had for her girls was remarkable. I am so thankful that even though she had to endure such a battle, she was able to spend so much time with her family the past few years. I know that her spirit and her love for them will never cease. Rest in peace, Wendy, we will remember you always.
