Wendy (Shannon) Toufexis, 56, of Elgin, passed away on October 4th, 2017.
Wendy attended Larkin High school and Benedictine University before becoming a cardiac care nurse at Sherman Hospital in Elgin. However, her greatest accomplishment was her two children, Nick (28) and Stephanie (25).
For 30+ years, Wendy had battled an aggressive, progressive type of Multiple Sclerosis. No matter how tough it got, she never stopped fighting - one thing everyone around her admired.
She is survived by her two children, her sisters Pam (Mark) Burke and Lori (Jeff) Marty, her parents Mike and Sandi Shannon, and her former husband Chris. She also leaves behind many Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Nieces, and Nephews. The family wishes to thank the staff in the Critical Care Unit at Sherman Hospital for the outstanding care they provided during Wendy’s time there.
A memorial service will be held on Sunday, October 22, 2017 at 2:30 PM in the Laird Funeral Home, with a brunch to follow. Visitation will be held on Sunday from 12:30 PM until the time of services.
In lieu of flowers or gifts, please consider making a donation to the National MS Society in Wendy’s memory. 847-741-8800 or www.lairdfamilyfuneralservices.com.
