Wendy E. Richards, 74, of Barefoot Bay, Florida died unexpectedly May 10, 2023, at her home.

She was born February 12, 1949, in Lawrence, Mass, the daughter of George Richards and Laura (Early) Richards.

She was a determined individual spending many years building a wooden paddle wheeler (The River Lady) that still floats the river today!

Wendy was an avid pool player, winning several championships in both NH and Florida. She loved to be bare foot, water ski, take cruises and travel.

Wendy was a devout Catholic and attended church faithfully. Her true love though, was her family.
