Wendi Machelle Reed (nee: Bly) of Saint Charles, MO, passed away Saturday, February 9, 2019 at the age of 44. Beloved wife of Kascar Reed; cherished daughter of Carol and Thomas Moran, Jr.; devoted mother of Desirae Machelle Hoerner, KyLale Matthew Reed, and Kasey Ryan Reed; loving grandmother of Marley Paige Smith; treasured granddaughter of Darlene "Nana" Sutherland and the late Gene Sutherland; and dear sister of Thomas (Becky) Moran, Johnny (Londa) Moran, Angela (the late Curtis) Long, and Amy (Donny) Eckrich. Wendi was also preceded in death by her brothers Russell Vela and Scott "Scooter" Vela; nephew Casey Vela; and mother-in-law Frieda Reed. Wendi is also survived by many loving nieces and nephews.

Wendi loved the arts. She enjoyed creating with her hands, such as crocheting, knitting, and sewing, and being an amateur photographer.

Her deep love for her family will never be forgotten. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her in return.

    candle 4So thankful for al who have commented.

    Wendi aka “WeeWee” was a beautiful soul, conflicted at times but always loved everyone who came into her life. She knew no strangers. She loved her family and she was loved by them all just as deeply.

    A sister is more than a family member who you grow up with, a sister is a best friend. I will always love and remember her. Her smile was one of the best in the world.
