19 February 1953 - 11 July 2016

14 July 2016 – New Zealand Curling is deeply saddened to advise the passing of Wendy Becker, one of one of the country's most well-loved curlers.

Wendy passed away on Monday 11 July, aged 63.

Born into a well-known curling family, Wendy was a curler for most of her life and competed at the top level for many years. She represented New Zealand at eight World Senior Championships between 2005 and 2015.

As recently as 2014, Wendy and husband Peter won the MCI Doubles and later that year she skipped her team to the New Zealand Women's Championship title.

However it is for her warmth, hospitality and generosity to the local, national and international curling community that Wendy will best be remembered.

We extend our love and deepest sympathies to Peter, Sean, James, Bridget and Scott and their families.
