In Loving Memory

Wendl, Michael Robert

Michael Robert Wendl
5-May-1998 to 29-March-2024

Fortified with the Sacraments of Holy Mother Church. Beloved son of Michael C and Pamela M Wendl (nee Bjerkness). Cherished brother of Nicholas and Thomas. Dear grandson of Michael J and Betty Wendl and Janis and the late Robert Bjerkness. Dear nephew of Steve and Stephanie Wendl, Susan and Steve Gallagher, Colleen McMahon, Paul Bjerkness and Erin Folan. Favorite cousin of Joe (Becky) Wendl, John (Anna) Bjerkness, Kathryn Bjerkness, Alex (Shelby) Wendl, Amy Wendl, Daniel Gallagher and Anton Gallagher. Michael was loved and cherished by many great aunts and uncles, additional cousins, and close family friends.

Michael taught us about unconditional love, patience, and service to others. He was God’s gift to us. Michael fulfilled his purpose and was called home to our Heavenly Father. God’s wisdom is beyond our understanding. Michael was of the purest of heart and has now been made whole. One day we will meet again and have all the conversations he was never able to have on Earth. But, for now, we are so sad we are no longer together as a family. He will be dearly missed.

  5. I am so sorry to hear about sweet Michael. He taught so many about making the best of each day and to laugh at the little things. Although he endured many challenges in his life, he had the gift to make others smile. His spirit and love for polka music will live in our hearts forever. My deepest sympathy to his family.

    You have my deepest sympathy on the loss of your son and brother. You all took such beautiful care of Michael and I know he must have felt so loved by all of you. I know he is rejoicing with the Lord and can’t wait for you all to be together again.

    With much love and hugs!

  7. Michael, you know I adored you. Each time I was with you was very special and I cried when I had to leave your care.
    I knew you were going to leave us one day—your loving family, me and many others whose lives you impacted. By your presence, you taught the meaning of real life. Thank you for the intersection in my life. Always love you

  8. Dear Mike and Pam
    You have my deepest sympathy on the loss of your son. It is the most difficult time for the parents. May God’s blessings be with you to overcome the grief.

  9. Pam, Mike, and the Wendl family,
    Thinking of you all. What a blessing he was to your family and everyone who had the pleasure of meeting him.

  10. “Agape love is unconditional, never dependant on reciprocity, and given freely in the most challenging times”. Agape love is the highest form of love and it is appropriated from God. Mike, Pamela, and family, you shined a bright light to us all on the meaning and doing of love.

  11. My condolences and prayers to you both, Michael and Pamela, and family on the loss of your son, brother, and grandson Michael Robert. He is at peace leaving wonderful memories with all of you.

  12. Be assured of my prayers and Mass for dear Michael and your family. May Mary, our mother, console us with her love. Devotedly, Fr. Carl
