It is with tremendous sadness that we announce the passing of Wendy Hamilton, on January 6, 2024. Wendy passed away peacefully, with her family by her side.
Born on February 28, 1964, to the late Robert and Linda (Lee) Moore, of Gagetown, she had a wonderful childhood growing up on the farm with her four siblings, where she developed a love for animals.
Wendy graduated from Oromocto High School and went on to study at the Saint John School of Nursing, graduating in 1986, as a Registered Nurse. She enjoyed a lengthy nursing career and developed many friendships along the way. She was a natural caregiver and showed kindness in many ways and never asked for anything in return.
In 1981, Wendy met Rick, the love of her life, and they married in 1985. They began their life in Westfield where they raised their two children. During that time, they built their camp on Hart’s Lake, which eventually became home. Wendy had a love for the outdoors and had many wonderful memories boating with her family. She enjoyed tending to her many gardens, feeding the birds, paddle boating and hanging with her family by the pool. In the evenings she enjoyed their walks around the tree farm with their dog Buddy whom she adored. Buddy was an amazing companion to her and continues to be one for Rick. Wendy’s greatest joy were her four beloved granddaughters.
In addition to her beloved husband of 38 years, Wendy is lovingly remembered by her son, Stephen (Mallory); daughter, Robyn; grandchildren, Rowan, Lennan, Peyton and Brooklyn; sisters, Cynthia (Rob), Cheri, Andrea (Don); brother, Richard (Lisa), and many nieces, nephews, and cousins. She was predeceased by her parents.
The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff at the DECH ICU who took such good care of her during her stay.
A visitation will take place on Thursday, January 11, 2024, from 2-4pm and 6-8pm. A funeral service will be held the following day on Friday, January 12, 2024 beginning at 11am in the Oromocto Funeral Home Chapel, with interment at a later date.
