The Funeral Service was held at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 14 - 3 Avenue East, Barnwell on Saturday, October 12, 2019 at 2:00 P.M. Burial followed at the Barnwell Cemetery.
Wendy is survived by her loving husband Ric Bateman and their children Duane (Janeene) Bateman of Fort Saskatchewan, Angie (Brian) Jensen of Barnwell, Shannon (Chad) Leavitt of Lethbridge and Janae (Naylan) Haslam of Barnwell as well as her eighteen grandchildren who loved her dearly. She is also survived by her mother Shirley Clements, siblings Chris (Keith) Moline, Bruce (Shellee) Clements, Barry (Brenda) Clements and Bryan Clements as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her father Harold Clements and her sister Faye Clements.
A woman of many talents and a life devoted to service, her loss will be felt by all the lives she touched. Wendy had a strong testimony of the gospel of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints which she demonstrated through her love and service to all. She wanted her children and grandchildren to know that her Saviour Jesus Christ played a vital role in helping her become the wife, mother and grandmother that she was. Wendy served in many church callings throughout her life, as well as many years of devoted service to the Village of Barnwell. However, her most important accomplishments were her children and grandchildren whom she served daily and loved so dearly. Wendy was the vital glue to her family, holding family dinners, baking, sewing and most importantly, was a listening ear. Though devastated, her family knows that they will see their dear wife, mother and grandmother again.
