WASHINGTON, NH: Wendy Sue (Wilbur) Bixby, 80, passed away peacefully Tuesday morning, January 26th, 2021 at Brookdale Senior Living in Durham, NH with loving support from her family. Wendy has joined her husband Robert (Bob) C. Bixby, to whom she was married for 50 years and missed dearly.

She loved dancing and theatre with Bob and their many close friends. Wendy loved anything green and Irish and loved to follow all of Boston sports. Like her husband, she will be remembered for her personality and distinct laugh.
