Honoring Wendy Michelle Reed

Wendy was a young, beautiful soul who was loved by everyone she touched. Sadly, she was taken from us too early.

Wendy was a graduate of Carroll High School in Dayton, Ohio in 2000. She enjoyed cheerleading, playing on her school soccer team, listening to music and family camping trips (in particular, the annual trips to the Florida Keys). She looked forward to evening and weekend sailing trips, especially when she could have a few friends onboard. She loved to sail, swim and camp on the boat in a secluded cove.

In her memory, her father, Bill Reed and his wife Elizabeth, named their 42’ Catalina sailboat the Wendy Michelle. They sailed s/v Wendy Michelle to the Keys in 2009 and have since bought a home on Cudjoe Key.

If she was with us today, we know Wendy would be laughing and happily dancing down Duval Street in The Crooks Annual Second Line. We look forward to celebrating Wendy’s life, as well as the other honorees, with lively music, much laughter and everlasting love.
