Wendellyn "Wendy" (Wells) M.'s Story
Wendellyn “Wendy” Curtin, 72, passed away in the early morning on Saturday, November 18, at Mass General Hospital in Boston in the company of her children. Born in Beverly, she was the daughter of Fran and Wendell Wells. Wendy grew up in Topsfield at “Carl’s Cabins” across the street from the Topsfield Fairgrounds. This is where she met the love of her life, Frank. Frank and Wendy got married and moved to Salem where they enjoyed over 50 wonderful years together. Though she held a number of jobs over the years, the job that Wendy was by far the most proud of was raising her four children.
Wendy is survived by her four children, Francis Curtin of Salem, Lisa McGrath and her husband, Kevin of Georgetown, Chris Curtin of Salem, and Brian Curtin and his wife, Jennifer of Hampstead, N.H.; a sister, Martha Swiderski of Hampstead, N.H.; a brother, Walter Wells of Pownal, Maine; and a sister, Carlene Garron of Moab, Utah. Additionally, Wendy was “Nana” to nine wonderful grandchildren, Sean, Fred, Marisa, Joe, Rachel, Caeley, Michael, Brian, and Jack.
