Nutter, Wendy


1946 - 2019


November 10, 1946 - October 23, 2019

Peacefully in hospital after a brief illness.

Only daughter of the late Barbara and Roland Nutter, Wendy was born in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, England.

A long-time employee of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in Ottawa, Wendy also worked at the Canadian Nurses’ Association and was a founding member of the Ottawa Women’s Network.

A true friend to many and an honorary aunt to their children, she will be sadly missed and fondly remembered.

In accordance with her wishes, her ashes will be buried with her parents in Hebden Bridge next Spring.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Hospice at May Court or the Ottawa Chapter of the Canadian Celiac Association.

A celebration of Wendy’s life will be announced at a later date.

“So when I’ve done my roaming, and when my step grows slow; when heart and mind assure me that the time has come to go, then let me rest in Yorkshire, for it’s there I want to lie ’neath sun and wind and heather… and a gleaming Yorkshire sky.”

So sad to hear ... Even though it’s been years, I can still hear her laughter

Family and friends of Wendy Nutter

My husband and I both had the pleasure of meeting Wendy in our exercise classes at Dovercourt. I was immediately struck by her friendly, warm, and softspoken manner. Wendy was one of those rare people that made you feel so comfortable in her presence as if you had known her for years. We are saddened to hear of her passing and send our heartfelt condolences to her family in Yorkshire and her friends here and abroad. Rest in peace sweet lady. Maria and John Barker

Friends of Wendy Nutter

It was very sad to hear about Wendy's death from one of her friends in Ottawa. I've known Wendy most of my life; played with her as a small girl, she lived near my cousin in Hebden Bridge. I met her again when I started work at an engineering works in Hebden Bridge where she was the secretary to the Deputy MD. Worked with her for about 2 years before she left for another job in Halifax. Kept in touch with her, mainly at Christmas, after she emigrated to Canada in the early 70's . She'll be sadly missed by all her friends.
