Wendy Lee West

Wendy Lee Spackman West, 60, passed away on April 13, 2016 in Preston, Idaho from natural causes. She was born December 14, 1955 the surprise Edwin Ted Spackman and Elna Harris Spackman had been waiting for. Wendy was raised in Preston and proud to have attended Central and Whitney Elementary schools.

Wendy graduated Preston High School in 1974 and was the first in her family to attend college. She attended ISU for one year until Doug swept her off her feet and convinced her to move back to Preston. Wendy met Doug in 1969 through a mutual friend. They dated all through high school and college and married in 1975. Together they had three beautiful daughters- a red head, a brunette, and a blonde, and 9 grandkids that she adored and spoiled.

Wendy and Doug loved to travel with family and friends. They loved to see the country in their RV. Wendy worked at their business and loved to talk and laugh with their customers.  She had the most vivacious laugh. You couldn’t help but laugh when she laughed.

Wendy loved to cruise around in her little red convertible with her shades on and music loud! Her family considered her a thrill seeker, she was always the first in line with her grandchildren to the scariest roller coasters and rides.

Wendy took pride in always having a clean and tidy house and a beautiful yard. She and Doug enjoyed the summer nights out on the patio with their friends and family.

Wendy- wife, mother, grandmother and best friend we love you and you will be missed.
