April 6th, 1998 will be a date remembered forever in punk music history.  On this day Wendy Orlean Williams decided to end her life by committing suicide.
Most of us knew Wendy as the "Queen of Shock Rock", a title bestowed upon her early in her career.  What most of us didn't know is that she had a more caring and tender side too.  At the time of her death Wendy was residing in Storrs, Conneticut and was working as an animal rehabilitator.
Rod Swenson, Wendy's former manager and longtime companion, stated that Wendy had been despondent for a long period of time.  He said that Wendy felt she was past her prime and found it hard to lead a normal life.  Swenson found her body in a wooded area behind their home.  Wendy had died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.  She was 48 years old.

 Thousands of fans around the globe and those closest to her that she left behind all mourn her passing.
Wendy O Williams will be truly missed.
