Wendy loved going to her grandparents’ farm, playing with her numerous friends along the banks of Lake Florence, and roller skating at the local rink. She was active in many high school organizations, graduating with the Stewartville High School class of 1958. She attended the University of Minnesota – Minneapolis for one year and then worked in the office at the Farmer’s Elevator in Stewartville. On December 5, 1959, she was united in marriage to Richard D. Egen of Stewartville. They were blessed with three children: Carrie, Sean and Tom. The family lived in Minneapolis until 1976 when they moved to Seattle. Richard passed away in 1985.
On July 3, 1987, she married Dan P. Eacret in Seattle. They continued to make their home there until Dan retired from Boeing and they relocated to their condo in Sandpoint, ID. In 2002 they bought their current home in Spokane, WA. During their 32 years of marriage they traveled in Europe, the Middle East, Russia, North Africa, South America and the U.S.

Wendy was a kind and compassionate woman, a loving daughter, sister, wife, mother, and grandmother. She was a gourmet cook, a hostess extraordinaire, and a fashionable woman who always added some glitz to her ensemble. She leaves us her sparkle.
