She was active in both performance and director level roles in numerous operatic and musical theatre productions throughout her life and cherished every moment of it. She was an avid reader of great intellect, a lover of many pets, an exceptional cook and expert gardener.

Wendy Lee enriched so many lives and she was truly ‘a giver’. She is now pain free and able to sing with the choirs of angels.
