Wendy Lynn (Jones) Roy, age 67, passed away peacefully on March 27, 2024. Wendy was born in Concord, Massachusetts, on November 5, 1956, and was the daughter of Nellie Grant Christie MacRae and Oscar Jones. She is predeceased by her sisters Shirley Schwartz and Elsie Hancock and survived by her loving husband of 43 years, David C Roy, and her son Jeremy Roy, his wife Connie and children Gavin and Evelyn; daughter Heather Desrochers and husband Brad; children MacKenzie and Trevor, son Joshua Roy and children Billy and Luna, daughter Heidi Roy and her son Matthew, daughter Laura Bettez and her husband Dave and their son Leonard, as well as innumerable nieces, nephews, and cousins. 

Wendy grew up in Concord, Massachusetts, with her family, shadowing her mother in the flower business and even doing seasonal work into adulthood at Colonial Gardens.  She completed high school at Concord Carlisle High School.  In 1981, Wendy married her soulmate, David, at West Concord Union Church.  Together, they raised their five children in Townsend, Massachusetts.  Wendy loved to spend time raising her children, playing board games, playing the piano, and singing with them.  Wendy cared for her pets, including dogs, cats, rabbits, and birds.  

Additionally, she enjoyed making meals for the first responders working in town and cakes for her business, Wendy’s Just Desserts, where she used to make wedding and birthday cakes. She truly enjoyed this use of her creative abilities. She also enjoyed supporting the Townsend Fire Department through the Townsend Fire Department Women’s Auxiliary, which delivered hot coffee and meals to firefighters working fire scenes.  

During her child-rearing years, Wendy worked many jobs based on service to people.  She worked as an EMT on Townsend Ambulance Service, responding to medical emergencies in town.  Additionally, Wendy worked for Burbank Hospital and Emerson Hospital as an ER tech, as a phlebotomist, and in town as a crossing guard in Townsend, where she was well-loved by the children at the school with her friendly smile.

In her free time, Wendy loved to do all sorts of crafts, including crocheting, sewing, quilting, and making ceramics. She also made homemade Christmas gifts for her whole family, including parents, children, nieces, and nephews.  Wendy truly enjoyed horseback riding, caring for her grandchildren, fishing, card games with friends, and supporting her friends at open mic nights in downtown Concord at Main Streets Café. 

Most recently, Wendy settled into her dream retirement home in Derby Line – Holland, Vermont, where she had vacationed for years.
