Wendy Hartdegen Bowers passed away on June 15, 2020 at the age of 46 after a long fought battle with cancer. She is survived by her best friend and devoted husband, Wally, and their two beautiful children, Avery and Nathan. Born to Sharon and Charles (deceased) Hartdegen on June 9, 1974, Wendy proceeded to enrich the lives of others with her thoughtfulness. She is also survived by her older brother Brett (Rebecca), sister, Jody and dearly loved by many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends. She graduated from the University of New Orleans with a Business Management Degree and advanced to have a successful career. Soon Wendy transitioned from the business world to working alongside her husband at I.T.S. while also being a stay-at-home mom.

Throughout her life, Wendy danced into the hearts of all who knew her. Years spent dancing with friends were some of her most treasured memories. She had an unmatched passion for embracing life to the fullest. She enjoyed family beach vacations, camp weekends, boat rides with the beloved family
dog Maggie by her side, hosting holiday family gatherings, crawfish boils, and cheering for her Saints. When diagnosed with breast cancer, Wendy was determined to fight and was called “a warrior”.
