Wendy Marie Iverson was born on March 24, 1955 to Osborne and Mary (Stasiuk) in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. After graduating from Churchill High School she was married to Richard Johnson of Hamilton and worked for Canada Post delivering mail. She attended Laision Culinary School and worked as a chef for numerous restaurants in the Hamilton area. In July 2007 she moved to Olivia, MN and was married to Kevin Iverson on November 22, 2008.
Wendy’s passion was in the kitchen and loved being creative with any and all kinds of foods. She loved sharing her recipes with everyone especially her daughters. She enjoyed being on her computer and visiting with her other passion, her grandchildren. She tried to learn how to play golf but Kevin was not a very good instructor.
Wendy is survived by her husband Kevin of Olivia, MN; daughters Caren (and Dave) Funnell, Debbie Johnson of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, and sons Robert (and Jennifer) of Grimsby, Ontario, Canada and Lucas (and Miran) of Seoul, South Korea. She truly loved her grandchildren Tailor, Harrison, Daniel, Calvin, Conner, Bruce and Harper. She is also survived by her mother Mary (Marie) Ferguson of Hamilton, sisters Fay (and Wayne) Morningstar, Betty (and Alan) Timko and Vicky Powles, all of Canada, and former husband Richard Johnson of Grimsby, Ontario, Canada. Also, surviving Wendy are numerous nephews, nieces, cousins in Canada, step-nephews and nieces in Minnesota and New Mexico; brothers-in-law Albert of Minnesota and Wally in New Mexico, step-sister Jeanne of Minnesota and many of her internet friends across the country and world, especially Donna, our maid of honor from California. She was preceded in death by her father and her brother Danny.
