December 24, 1958 – October 22, 2020
Celebrating The Life Of Wendy Gloria Lichty. Wendy ‘Gloria’ Lichty touched the lives of all the people she met, be they family, friends, or pets.
She will be lovingly remembered and greatly missed by all. Wendy passed away unexpectedly at the Grey Nun’s Hospital in Edmonton, Alberta on October 22, 2020.
Our time with her was a treasure. Her family hopes that her friends and loved ones know how important they were to her. Right up until her death, she talked often about how blessed she was to meet such loving and caring people in this world.
The women she worked with at Crossroads House and the high-risk youth she counselled and supported at inner city always held a special place in her heart. To all the women she was a foster mom to, her co-workers, and to all her dear friends, you are deeply loved by Wendy.
Wendy Gloria will be cherished by her sister Gail Krause of Ponoka, Alberta; her nephew Blake (Christina) Krause of Beaumont, Texas and their children Catherine and Jacob; nephew Colton (Mandi) Krause of Ponoka, Alberta and their children Bailey, Paisley, and Walker; nephew Trevor (Christina) Krause of Blackfalds, Alberta and their children Gaven, Kerrin, and Ensley; her foster daughter Angela Nobles of Edmonton, Alberta; and her fur baby Miss Mege. Also left to mourn are her uncle Lloyd (Mary Lou) Lichti of Stratford, Ontario and their family; cousin Barbara-Ann (Adrian) de Hann of Biggar, Saskatchewan and their family; cousin Charolette (Ken) Reid of Orrtanna, Pennsylvania and their family; cousin Marlene (Larson) Wenger of New Castle, Pennsylvania and their family; her cousin Douglas (Kathy) Lichty of St. Thomas, Pennsylvania and their family; cousin Brian (Pierrette) Lichty of Edmonton, Alberta and their family; cousin Diane Pecile of Calgary, Alberta; her cousin Donna (Joe) Bartlette of Cold Lake, Alberta and their family; as well as many friends, that were like family to her in Alberta, Newfoundland, Ontario, Washington, Tennessee, Jamaica, Spain, England, and many others worldwide (you all know who you are!). You all held a special place in her heart.
Wendy was a proud member of the Ponoka Rising Sun Clubhouse where she appreciated visiting with everyone and helping when she could. Wendy was predeceased by her mom Irene Lichty; father Ervin Lichty; her brother Terrence ‘Tiny’ Lichty; her grandparents Lloyd and Elsie Gamble; grandparents Solomon and Emma Lichti; as well as several aunts and uncles.
At Wendy’s request, and with respects to her wishes, there will not be a Funeral Service.
“A funeral is not what I want. I want people to remember me alive, happy, and smiling. Let my new adventure begin, I heard it is a long road trip.”
– Wendy Lou Lichty a.k.a. ‘Gloria’ (a quote from Wendy’s will)
The family would like to extend their heartfelt appreciation and gratitude to the medical team and spiritual staff of the Grey Nun’s Community Hospital of Edmonton, with special mention to the staff of the ICU and Unit 42.
Memorial donations are gratefully accepted to any charity of your choice or any random act of kindness that Gloria was so well known for by so many. A future get together to celebrate Wendy’s life will be determined when COVID restrictions are lifted, allowing safe travel and get togethers for us all.
