Ancient Oaks Foundation is deeply saddened by the passing of our friend and dedicated volunteer Wendy Connolly. Wendy was a committed and energetic member of AOF, a close friend, and a wonderful person. She will be missed immensely. Please keep Wendy’s family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.
Wendy was born on March 2, 1979, in Evanston, IL to Phyllis and the late Lawrence Burg. She passed away on Thursday, January 26, 2023.
Wendy’s spirit was strong and bright while here on earth. She laughed with her whole body and had a sense of right and wrong that led her to start her own business. Her love of advocacy and later in life spirituality made Wendy a force to be reckoned with. She appreciated people for their different nationalities, racial identities, sexual identities, and the list goes on. Wendy enjoyed talking to people, photography, watching TV, listening to music, gardening, and being in nature. What she adored most of all was children. She helped many as an amazing speech language pathologist for the last 16 years. Her steadfast commitment and jovial nature made her exceptional.
Wendy is the loving wife of Aran, mother of Logan, and sister of Daniel Burg.
