Obituaries

Virginia Beach—Wendy Marie Blau, 71, made her transition to be with God, as well as her journeyed loved ones on Monday, January 25, 2021.

Born on September 15, 1949 to Lee and Harry Blau of Detroit, Michigan, she is preceded in death by her parents, and by her loving brother, Jeff Blau of Denver, Colorado.

She is survived by her brother, Irv Blau of West Bloomfield, Michigan; sister-in-law, Judy Blau; three nieces, Lindsay, Ali, and Lainie Blau; her son, Ethan Blau and his fiancée, Dakota; and by her four loving grandchildren, Ashlyn, Mason, Nixon, and Zaiden Blau of Virginia Beach.

Wendy was a very compassionate and brilliant person. She has participated in a multitude of great achievements in her time spent here. Some of note would be her trips to Jerusalem to aid the people there, being a Vista Volunteer in West VA, and by being one of three volunteers to create Cabin Creek Quilts in West, VA, which is still vital today to help those in poverty.

She attended both the University of Michigan and Virginia Wesleyan University. She created her own company, Ethan’s Wooden Toy & Doll Co., manufactured kites at Jackite Inc., and managed Stichworks Embroidery Inc.

Wendy’s passions were her son, Ethan, being outdoors and exploring nature, photography, being hands-on, drawing and painting, writing, and of course her family and friends. Wendy’s one of a kind, absolutely true to herself, and her unique personality will never be forgotten and lives on through her son and grandchildren.

A Celebration of Life was held at H.D. Oliver Funeral Apartments, Laskin Road Chapel with Rabbi Israel Zoberman officiating.
