Obituary

WENDY M. COLE
HERMON – Wendy M. Cole, 71 passed away February 15, 2020 at a Bangor hospital supported by her family.
She was born September 1,1948 in Greenville, Maine, the daughter of Hanford Hartley Canders and Vera (Leet) Canders. Wendy graduated from Greenville High School class of 1966. She married her high school sweetheart, Stephen W. Cole in 1967. They would have celebrated 53 years of marriage in June.

Wendy concentrated on her roll as a homemaker in support of her family her entire life. The volunteer service Wendy was most proud of was her ten year career as a hospice care provider with New Hope Hospice. She became an accomplished quilter and member of Bear Paws Quilt Guild in Bangor as well as the St. Augustine Piecemakers Quilting Guild in Florida.

In addition to her parents she was predeceased by a sister, Bonnie Given, a great niece, Piper Moore, and beloved canine companion, Fern. Surviving in addition to her husband, Stephen, are her daughters Heidi (Cole) Guerette and husband Charles of Winthrop, Jillisa (Cole) Sekera of Bangor, five grandchildren, Walt Guerette, Mitchell Guerette, Anna Guerette, Gabrielle Sekera and Eliot Sekera, a sister Vicky Canders of Greenville, nephew Hartley Given and his wife Sherri and their daughter Kassidy of Huddleston, VA, and niece Amanda (Given) Moore of Bedford, VA.

Relatives and friends are welcome to call 5-7 pm Wednesday, February 19, 2020 at Brookings Smith 133 Center Street, Bangor, where a memorial service will be held 10 am Thursday February 20, 2020. Interment will be in Greenville, Me in the spring. The family invites relatives and friends to share conversation and refreshments at the Family Reception Center of Brookings Smith 163 Center Street, following the memorial service. Per Wendy’s request, ABSOLUTELY NO FLOWERS. Because advances in cancer research and treatment allowed Wendy extended time with family and friends, those who wish to remember her in a special way may make gifts in her memory to Challenge the Cure, C/O Northern Light Health Foundation, P.O. Box 931, Bangor, ME. 04401-0931.

There are people you meet in life with whom you just get along - you enjoy laughing together and sharing a common activity - in this case quilting. Wendy was such a person to me - we didn't have a close friendship but I cared about her and her fight and kept her and her family on our prayer chain during that fight. Wendy was a special person and the world will not be so bright without her smile. God be with you during this sad time. I send sincere condolences to Steve and their family -

My Dear Sweet Friend Wendy, How do I begin to share all the beautiful memories we had together. Every moment I spent with you, Steve and your beloved Fern were so precious. How I looked forward to you coming to Florida each year. I treasure the time we sat at the kitchen table in the morning with Fern and Babie J and we spoiled both of them with treats. You were of the most kind, considerate, loving and strong woman I ever met and was blessed to have you in my live. I will miss you but you will always remain in my heart. Love Forever Linda & Babie J
