I was supervised by Ian Gough for my PhD at university of Alberta, 1982~87. This photo was taken in Switzerland while attending a conference around 1985. Wendy is a lovely lady, respected, loved and missed.

I first met Wendy in 1969, when I came to Edmonton to start a post-doctoral fellowship in Ian’s lab. I will always remember their hospitality and kindness in those early days, and the firm friendship that grew up over the ensuing decades. It was a privilege to have known Wendy. Heartfelt condolences to Stephen and the entire family.
