Wendy K Fritzel, 68, passed away peacefully at her home February 22, 2020 with her daughters, granddaughters, sister and great grandson by her side.
She was born in Ogden, Utah to Evaline Keyes and Bud Edison Lee. They moved to Evanston in 1967 where she met the love of her life, her soulmate of 50 years, Tony Fritzel after a squirt gun water fight. They were married on December 20, 1969.
She loved spending time with her family. She was the neighborhood mom, took in many of her children’s friends. She worked side by side with Tony at T & W Auto (established in 1983) as a woman mechanic, secretary and owned another business, Wendy’s Tax Service (established in 1980).
She enjoyed camping, traveling, collecting dolls, owls, baking, sewing and so much more. She was a jack of all trades. She loved helping any and every one she came across in need. She’d give the shirt off her back.
