Wendy Fordham Mills of American Fork, Utah passed away in her sleep at home on August 3, 2016 at the tender age of 58. For those left behind, it was too soon. For her angel mother and dear father, whom she dearly missed in life, it could not come soon enough.\n\nShe was the 7th of 8 faithful children and grew up in Pleasant Grove, Utah. She was sealed to her eternal sweetheart, Howard Millsa"to whom she was supremely dedicateda"in the Salt Lake Temple for time and all eternity. She has three boys and two "daughters-by-gift," to whom she gave her entire heart and soul. Finallya"and foremost to hera"she adored and thought night and day of her 9 grandchildren. She often dreamed of her soon-to-be born 10th grandchild (boy) and will now have the chance to snuggle with him in heaven before his earthly journey.\n\nIn life she was a gentle soul with room in her heart for each and every person that she came in contact with. Myriads have called her their 'second mom.' She is truly gifted with Christ-like love. Though some may have forgotten details of her lifea"she never forgot them. She often recited details heard years earlier of even those she only met once. Love is her true legacy to all she met.\n\nWendy was born to Blake Taft Fordham and Fay Metta (Covington) Fordham and to a loving family that is fiercely faithful to the Lord Jesus Christ and His church. She is survived by her husband of 37 years, her three sons Austin Mills (Linley), Ryan Mills, Jordan Mills (Ashley), and her cherished 9 grandchildren.\n\nShe is also survived by her 6 siblings: Larry (LueAnn) Fordham, Gerry (Angie) Fordham, Beverly (Bill) Jarvis, Steve (Nila) Fordham, Connie (Scott) Ormond, and Todd (Lori) Fordham, and many nieces and nephews.\n\nWendy is a lifelong member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in many callings throughout her life. She taught well the lessons of following the Savior in love throughout her days by word and example. She loves her family, family history work, reading, dogs, her many friends, and flowers of all kinds. She achieved her greatest dream of being a faithful wife and loving mother.\n\nYou are invited to celebrate her exceptional life with us by attending viewing services on Sunday, August 7th from 6:00 - 8:00 PM at the Olpin Family Mortuary, 494 South 300 East, Pleasant Grove.
