Wendy Beam, 61, of Englewood, Fla., formerly of Massachusetts, passed away after a long illness on October 23, 2021. Wendy had a varied career of landscaping, housekeeping, serving as a home health aide, and was an all-around caregiver of people. The one thing that she is known for was her tenacity and her bright, beautiful smile. She is deeply missed by all who knew her. She is survived by her loving partner of many years, Joel Proulx, children Steven Beam Jr and James Beam, siblings Lee Perkins Jr, Patrick Perkins, and Clifton Perkins, and grandchild Fantasia Hayes. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
