Wendy Louise Johnstone

Wendy Louise Johnstone

31st January 1968 - 21st May 2023


Wendy was an extraordinary woman and beautiful soul, who lived life to the full every day and touched the lives of many

in her communities in Heathcote, Melbourne and further afield.

She is dearly missed by her devoted partner Evan, and by her loving family, and many friends and colleagues.

Adored eldest daughter of Pam and Cam Johnstone. 

Cherished and loving sister of Chris, Felicity, Genevieve and Anthony, and loved sister in law of Nada, Simon and Kate.

Beloved stepmother of Tarkyn.

Much loved auntie of Lily, Emily, Tom, Archie, Ella, Frankie, Charlie, Pip, Mila and Arpie.

Loved and remembered always. 


Yet hope again elastic springs,

Unconquered, though she fell;

Still buoyant are her golden wings,

Still strong to bear us well

 - Charlotte Bronte

    Goranka and I met Wendy about 17 years ago, Goranka got stuck behind their house when it was being trucked in. A bit later I found Zephyr their dog and then meet Evan and Wendy when I returned him. That was the beginning of a decade and a half of dinners and drinks and music and laughs. She was the most wonderful person, and we will miss her so much. Unfair is losing her so early, but she will be with us forever.

    Wendy x
    I will always be forever grateful of our special times we shared.
    Cooking together or just listening to records beside the fire.
    You had a special place in my heart.

    Wendy was a wonderful colleague and educator who I had the pleasure of working alongside at PCW over many years in the early 2000s.
    I was inspired to see she had started an inspiring new chapter and created a beautiful life on the vineyard near Bendigo.
    I am very saddened to hear of her passing.
    Sending love and heartfelt condolences to all her friends and family.
