She was predeceased by her father and mother, Norman and Beatrice Knott, and her sister Sherry Knott-Simon. She is survived by her husband of 32 years, Tony Comer, daughter Shannon Blosser-Salisbury, twin sons, her sister Karen Chovan and her brother Norm Knott.

Wendy always gave her all without question and shared her love with both family and extended family alike. She was often there for those who had nowhere else to go and she never turned anyone away if she could be of help. She touched many lives and will be missed by family and friends alike.
She loved working with children and was active in Girl Scouting for many years both as a Troop Leader and as a professional career choice. She was also very active in various historical communities. She played a major role in Historic Fort Wayne, in Fort Wayne, Indiana, working there with her family for many years as an interpreter and event manager. In Louisville, Kentucky she directed the startup and managed the initial operation of a then new historic site, Riverside Farnsley-Moremen Landing, operated the Thomas Edison House and volunteered time at Locust Grove. In Clearwater, Florida, she volunteered time regularly and was eventually employed by Heritage Village to direct and co-manage various programs and events. She loved serving the community by learning and sharing local history.
She combined her love of children with her knowledge of event planning and coordination into creating and hosting annual summer camps for her grandchildren and their friends. Camp Turkey Vulture, affectionately referred to as “Grammy Camp”, included various activities and travel throughout the state of Florida, establishing many wonderful and lasting memories for all who participated both young and old.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date. We invite you to make a donation to World Vision or your favorite charity instead of sending cards or flowers.

I had the awesome pleasure of working with Wendy at Pinellas County Utilities. She was truly an “Angel” and will be missed. She gave me a ceramic angel that sits on my desk. I will look at now in remembrance of her:) My deepest condolences to family and friends. An angel to forever watch over us, Blessings.

I worked with Wendy at Pinellas County Utilities during a difficult time in most people’s lives. Wendy always was empathetic towards the customers. She even took out her own debit card and paid a customer’s water bill because there were children in the home. She was compassionate, caring, and loving. She will be missed. I met her husband and he is a great guy also. I’m so sorry to her family losing such a wonderful person.
