Wendy Lynn Profitt
Wendy Lynn Profitt gained her wings and joined her Father in heaven on Dec. 22, 2021. Her devoted husband, Steven, was by her side, comforting and loving her as she left this earth.
Wendy was born on Aug. 28, 1975, in Baker City, Oregon, to Valeria and Gary Krantz. From a very young age, Wendy lit up the room with her smile and melted hearts with her kindness; she touched more lives than those left behind can count.
Growing up in Eastern Oregon, Wendy attended grade school and junior high in John Day, later attending and graduating from high school in Baker City. Wendy is remembered by classmates far and wide for her ability to make everyone feel like they belonged. She was a trusted friend.
Wendy’s three children, Courtney, Deran and Caden, were the lights of her life! When Wendy and Steven married in 2005, she gained three more children that she loved as if they were her own: Michael, Tanner and Mckensi. In the last year, grandbabies Guy Dexter and Henry Profitt were added to the family. She was also anxiously awaiting a third grandbaby, baby boy Dilworth, who will make his appearance very soon. Wendy was so happy and proud to be a grandma – and she was the best!
Life definitely threw this beautiful woman some curve balls over the years, and her ability to overcome hardships with a smile on her face and joy in her heart was truly impressive. Those that knew her well, knew it was because of her deep Christian faith. She always put God first, and it showed in everything she did and said. Even the signs and decorations in her house reflect her belief and were a constant reminder to others of her faith in Jesus.
Wendy enjoyed competitive sports, board games, card games and Bingo! She was also a lover of the great outdoors: camping, four-wheeling, paddle-boarding, snowshoing, skiing, playing softball and golf. She was drawn to water, and loved floating and relaxing with friends and family every chance she could. Most of all, Wendy enjoyed spending quality time with her family and close friends – and there were many.
When the news of Wendy’s untimely passing hit friends and loved ones, the shock and sadness rippled out near and far. Evident in her social media pages, Wendy is being remembered by many as one of the best people they ever had the privilege of knowing. Described as having the most genuine and authentic smile, the happiest and most joyful person, most beautiful woman inside and out, a true friend with a golden heart, a bright light with a laugh that could change the world, considered a best friend to many, she gave you all of her attention when she was with you, every time she was with you. Some friends and family members have pledged to “be more like Wendy” by asking themselves in tough situations, “What would Wendy do?”
She was known for always being considerate and thoughtful of others, no matter how hard the situation was on her. To say her presence on this earth will be missed is an understatement. She truly was a pure, sweet and genuinely beautiful soul, and we know her light will forever shine bright on all of us.
Wendy is survived by her husband Steven Profitt; her children, Courtney Dilworth (Josh), Deran Dexter (Mariah), Caden Dexter (Trinity), Michael Profitt, Tanner Profitt (Bethany) and Mckenzi Profitt; her parents, Valeria and Chuck Cason and Gary Krantz; her siblings: Buffy Robinson, Gary Krantz (Amber), Wes Dexter (Kim); Jeremy Coley (Michelle); many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews; grandparents Ken Speelman, Ivan and Eileen Andrew; many aunts and uncles and numerous cousins.
Services will be held for Wendy on Saturday, January 15th at 1:00 p.m. in her favorite place of worship, Rock Harbor. A celebration of life will be held directly afterward in the church lobby. Rock Harbor is located at 6437 N. Tree Haven Way, Meridian, Idaho.
