Wendy Brazier Obituary

Wendy Lee Brazier passed away at home, with her family at her side, on Feb 25, 2024, at the age of 61. Wendy was laid to rest at St. John cemetery, Antelope district Feb 28, 2024. Wendy is survived by her husband, Cliff Brazier and her two sons, Kelly and Clayton. She is predeceased by her parents, Harold and Alice Sherwick and her brothers Stephen, Lane and Hugh.

Wendy was born on December 30, 1962. She grew up on the family farm in the Simmie/Admiral district. Her parents instilled roots that ran extremely deep. She was honored and proud of all her family history including what they came through to get her here. Alice taught her to cook, treat your neighbors with respect, and always provide a big table of food. Alice desperately wanted Wendy to stay clean and act proper, but soon enough she would be out either with Harold or her brothers getting dirty, helping on the farm.  Harold would always give her a smile and wink when they got back to the house and were in trouble. This is also where her love of all animals came from. Wendy took her education in Admiral.

She was a dedicated and competitive athlete who was involved in many sports including hockey, figure skating and track. She spent a lot of time at Lac Pelletier, and for many years was a member of the swim club. Following her mother’s footsteps, she took her Nursing degree at Grant MacEwan. On July 16, 1983, she married Cliff Brazier. They started their life together in Edmonton and moved back home to care for Alice. Wendy nursed in Vanguard and Swift Current. In 1996 she and Cliff moved to their present home in the Antelope/Webb district. They started building a wonderful home together and welcomed their first son Kelly Aug 8 1996, then Clayton Jan 20 1999. Dirt, sweat, and the desire for a peaceful life is what Wendy had always wanted, where neighbors became family.She wanted to raise her kids with a work ethic and teach them where their food comes from. To watch a sunrise after a night of lambing and a sunset after a long day’s work. The tranquility of rural living was her happy place. Wendy was determined, stubborn, independent, and strong willed. With these qualities, there wasn’t anything she wouldn’t tackle. If she didn’t know how, she would learn it. Nothing was put on the “back burner”. If she started it, she would see that it was finished. You better pull your weight if you were working with her, because if her temper came out, you would end up knowing it.

She was so proud of the farm she built, and rightfully so. She was the hardest worker around. She had a sheep flock that she critiqued until a genetic balance was achieved. A garden that produced enough to last a year. Her cold storage and deep freezers were filled with the fruits of her labour. Something was always dropped off at the neighbors, whether that was a fresh Saskatoon pie, loaf of bread, cookies or all three. She could make a five-star meal with a handful of ingredients on a whim. Wendy loved anything homemade. It was a complete sense of fulfillment when things could be made with her hands. Her love was shown throughout her many hours of work, making meals, baking, sewing, canning, and quilting. Wendy held her friends very close and loved her family so much. She was proud of the 43 yrs she spent with her husband Cliff. Watching Kelly and Clayton grow into young men was extremely gratifying.

      “As children we can’t comprehend or fully realize the meaning of our mother’s love, how tender and how wise, the patience and forgiveness that are a part of every day. The unexpected “little things” she does in her own way. Years go by before we can look back on life and see, through older eyes and wiser hearts her love and loyalty, and yet it’s these and other special things we’ll hold so dear, for memories of her steadfast love will keep her ever near.”
