    Wendy Ellen Evans of Llanfyllin - The Communities of Llanfyllin and the surrounding areas were shocked and saddened to learn that Wendy had lost her long battle with illness and passed away on 19th September 2017 aged 50yrs. A battle she fought with courage, determination and positivity since 2009. Wendy was inspirational in the way she dealt with her illness never letting it get her down or effecting her way of life. Many people would thank her as her attitude helped many others experiencing similar illness. She truly was a very special person and always wore her trademark smile, an infectious smile that would brighten the day of everyone she met. During her illness she served as a member of Llanfyllin Town Council and was on the Committees of many local organisations. She was always looking to improve the community for the better of all. Wendy was born in 1967 and attended Ysgol Pennant and then Llanfyllin High School. Upon leaving school Wendy "spread her wings" and lived in many parts of the UK before meeting her husband to be, Dai, and making Llanfyllin her home. She had three lovely children who she absolutely adored and they her. There was a large attendance at the funeral which was held at St Myllins Church, Llanfyllin on October 5th 2017 and a very moving service was conducted by the Rev'd Hermione Morris. The Funeral Directors were I. Jackson & Sons. The bearers were; Robert Ellis, Andrew Frost, Richard Griffiths, Aled Thomas, Kevin Williams and Kev Williams. The ushers were Chris Mead, Dai Williams, Stuart Jones and John Humphreys. Donations totalling almost £3,500 were received and will be equally divided between : The Chemo Day Centre RSH and The Firefighters Charity. Dai, Sian, Katie and David would like to thank everyone for the hundreds of cards and messages received during this very difficult time.
