Wendylee Melanie Laverriere Cantara, 43, died unexpectedly at her home in Biddeford on Saturday, July 9, 2016.
Wendy was born in Biddeford on Jan. 8, 1973. The highlight of her mother's life, she amazed everyone with her inquisitive mind. Never willing to settle for the one-word answer to anything, it was established early on that this child was gifted and had the need to continually learn.
Wendy was raised in the small town of Milton, New Hampshire, where she graduated from Nute High School. She became a licensed cosmetologist.
Wendy was always exceptionally bright and talented. Whether making crafts or making everyone laugh, she excelled in all that she chose to do. Her writings were as intense and beautiful as she was.
Finding peace by the ocean, her spirit was never restricted to any one place. She had the soul of a wanderer, always dreaming of new places and things.
She found her life purpose when she became a mom. She loved wholeheartedly. She will be sadly missed by so many.
Wendy was preceded in death by her mother, Delia Carswell. She is survived by: two sons; Ronald Cantara and Gauge Cantara; her father, Robert Carswell of Milton Mills, New Hampshire; and many extended family and friends.
