Wendy Lee Strain (Love) [Melbourne, Florida]  

(December 28, 1984 - January 14th, 2023)

    Wendy Love, 38, left us on Saturday morning January 14th. Wendy was born on December 28th, 1984 in Lowville, New York. Wendy graduated high school in Remsen, New York and moved to Florida for college. She graduated from the University of Central Florida with a degree in psychology.

     Wendy loved the beach and made Melbourne, Florida her permanent home. She met her husband, Jeremy Frampton there and is survived by him along with their two children Jeremiah Xavier Marley Love (AKA: Bullfrog) and EdenRain Marilyn Love (AKA: Babe). Her loss is shared by her mother, Lisa Macias (John) of Ocala; and maternal sisters, Alexandra Funk and Marlena Funk; as well as her father, Francis Strain; and paternal sisters, Deanna Gleasman (Levi), Sarah Waugh (Rachel), Jennifer Talkington, Beth Ann Niles, and Lyndsey Niles. She is also survived by her grandparents, Rosalie Strain and Diane Levitt. She is preceded in death by her stepmother, Debra Strain; stepfather, Brad Funk; grandfather, Charles Strain; and beloved grandmother, Marilyn Wood. 

     Wendy has multiple aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces/nephews, and friends who will miss her beautiful spirit and infectious smile.

     Wendy dedicated her life to her two children. She taught them the beauty of nature, peace, and how to enjoy the simple things in life. She gave a piece of herself to every person she encountered with intention and love which has been evident by people all over the world who have been affected by the news of her passing. She leaves behind a legacy of love for her children and a friendly reminder to keep love and warmth in your heart and to always extend a hand for those in need. 

      The family will be having a celebration of life in Upstate New York with a date to follow.

      In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a GoFundMe for her children. Click on "GoFundMe" to link directly to the donation site.

      The family would like to extend a thank you to VITAS for their care and compassion.
