SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. – With heavy hearts the Miller/McCaughey families announce the passing of our beloved Wendy. After courageously facing each setback for five years with a positive attitude she finally succumbed to colon cancer. She truly was an inspiration to all who knew her.
She is survived by her loving husband, Ted, and their equally loving children, Lily and Aiden. She will be forever remembered by her very caring and devoted sister, Nancy (Dan), and her parents, Lew and Janet. So many others were unfailing beside Wendy on her journey. From her cousin Treacy (Bill) and Dr. Safran and Dr. Taber and the caring staff at the Miriam Hospital. Her best friends, Karen, Deb and Connie, were continuingly supportive and physically by her side. She was oh-so-grateful.
Wendy was a Shea High School graduate. She did undergraduate work at the University of Rhode Island and received a master’s degree as a clinical social worker from Boston University. She had offices in the South County area and continued her practice through her illness. She was passionate and supportive of many social issues. Her contagious laugh and sense of humor will be remembered by her close cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.
Contributions in her memory may be made to Lifespan Cancer Institute, Cancer Research Fund, 139 Point St., Providence, RI 02903.
