Meet Wendy Byron, Gatton Funerals location manager.

How long have you lived in the area?

I spent many years as an Airforce wife on the base at Amberley and my son was born in Ipswich. I returned to the Valley and Toowoomba area from Northern NSW five years ago, when I decided I needed a tree change. My daughter and young family needed a Granny figure close, so I took long service leave from my work and haven’t look back since. I’ve since worked at UQ Gatton and also in Toowoomba.

What inspired you to join Gatton Laidley Lowood Funeral Services?

I enjoy country life and the comfort of being part of a community. Gatton Funerals provides such a critical service to the local community. It’s a privilege to be able to support and guide a family and help the celebrate the life of their loved ones.

What do you enjoy in  your spare time?

I enjoy keeping young at heart with my children and grandchildren. I love tennis which I don’t play enough of, and living each day with enthusiasm. The remainder of my spare time is spent enjoying all the activities and fellowship that being a member of The Rotary Club brings with it.
