Lacey, WA

Wendy Mann Mortensen, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, peacefully passed away in her home on February 25, 2024, at the age of 71, surrounded by her family. Wendy is survived by her husband, Mark; son, Joshua William (Mary) of Puyallup, Washington; son, Eric Neal (Melanie) of Pocatello, Idaho; son, Matthew Wayne (Sarah) of Colfax, Washington; daughter, Stacy Ann of Olympia, Washington; son, Aaron Jordan of the Pacific Northwest; and daughter, Whitney Megan Forsythe (Michael) of University Place, Washington. Wendy was born on September 19, 1952, at the LDS Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah. Her parents took her home to Kearns, Utah, where she spent the first 19 years of her life, except for nine months in Reno, Nevada. She graduated from Kearns High School in 1971 and Utah Technical College as an LPN nurse in 1972. On December 17, 1971, Wendy was sealed to the love of her life and eternal companion, Mark W. Mortensen in the Salt Lake City, LDS temple. They joined the military life and traveled through the world. Wendy loved to sew and create things for others, such as curtains, dolls, hanging kitchen towels, and clothing such as dresses for her granddaughters. Her love of reading came from her father. She also really enjoyed a variety of music and loved to sing. She had a beautiful voice. She loved her children and found joy in raising them. She enjoyed traveling, of course from her military life, but especially loved going to Alaska. She always said she wanted to die in winter, where she would be covered by a white blanket of purity as snow was her favorite. But most of all, Wendy loved the Lord. She served in the LDS Church in many areas, including Primary teacher and President, Young Women’s President, Relief Society President, and Seminary Teacher. She and Mark served as temple workers in the Seattle Temple for three years and found joy even when there weren’t many patrons, as that meant Wendy could serve as the patron. But of all her callings, she loved Visiting Teaching the most. She had a remarkable experience in 1980 that taught her that it was through that program, lives were changed, especially hers. Funeral services will be held on Monday, March 4, 2024, 11:00 a.m. at the LDS Stake Center, 1602 Ruddell Road SE, Lacey, WA 98503, with a viewing prior from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. In lieu of flowers, Mark is encouraging you to hold tight and spend more time with your loved ones.
