Wendy was born on May 13, 1954 in Berea, Ohio. She attended Parma Senior High, graduating in 1972 before heading off to college at Ohio University, where she graduated in 1978. Wendy's compassion for others led her to become a Special Education Teacher, where she spent most of her 30 plus years with the Franklin County Board of Developmental Disabilities (FCBDD) and finally retiring from CTEC. She truly had a lifetime commitment to teaching and educating others.

Wendy lived a life of service to others, giving her time and efforts to Habitat for Humanity, Living Hope Ministries, Northeast School Spaghetti dinners, and her true passion: Dogs! Wendy had a deep commitment to animal rescue and helping homeless dogs in need.

Beloved wife of Namon "Nick" Joseph for 19 years; Loving mother of Carrie Newman (Allison), Matthew Joseph (Jessica), and Zachary Joseph (Ally); cherished daughter of Ella Mae Shaker, and the late Ray Shaker; Beloved sister of Sharyn Riter (Dave), Barb Guttman (Todd), Ellen Shaker (Sue), and Amy Devine (Doug).
