October 10, 1957 – February 16, 2023
“the centerpiece of our family”
It is with unsurpassed sadness and heavy hearts we announce that, after a short and brave battle with cancer, Wendy Ann Romanowski passed away in the loving arms of her husband. Wendy was surrounded by immediate family and close friends at her home listening to her favorite song, “Be Not Afraid.”
Wendy was charismatic, compassionate, humorous, and shined a bright white light wherever she went with a smile that could light even the darkest room. She was born in Calgary, Alberta where she grew up and met her husband Eugene who she married in 1979. They relocated to Kamloops and began building their life here. Wendy was a loving wife of 43 years, a devoted mother, and a loyal sister. She gave her heart and soul to helping others and being a caregiver was natural to her. Wendy connected deeply with many families she supported at Pine Grove Care Centre throughout the 25 years she dedicated there. She could often be seen singing or dancing with residents and welcoming guests with open arms.
Wendy joins her mother, father, two of her sisters, grandparents, and many close friends in the heavens above. Wendy is greatly missed by her husband Eugene, daughters Amanda (Jay) and Nicole (Tyler), sister Cheri, grandchildren Lochlan, Beckett, Evera, Nessaya and extended family.
Wendy’s family welcomes you to join a mass service at 11:00 on Thursday February 23, 2023 at Our Lady of Perpetual Help (OLPH) in Kamloops BC, followed by a Celebration of Life. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a donation in Wendy’s memory to the Canadian Cancer Society – Southern Interior Rotary Lodge in Kelowna or the RIH Cancer Fund. Information to follow on how to donate.

Dear Eugene and girls,
I was so fortunate to work with Wendy when she was a care aide at RIH , on the long term care ward. She was a bright light with all the residents. Her smile and genuine care shone through.
She treated everyone with respect and kindness.
I am sorry to hear of her passing, she often spoke of her love for her girls and the proudness she had for her grandchildren.
My thoughts are with you all, rest in peace my sweet friend.
Hugs Cheryl Russo
