Hellen Wendy, the Kenyan nurse who drowned in a pool in Toronto, Canada while on Facebook Live, was on Wednesday finally laid to rest at her family home in Kisii County.

She was buried in a somber ceremony at Getare Misesi village in Bomachoge Chache Constituency after her family managed to repatriate the body from Ontario on Saturday.

On Saturday, the body of 23-year-old Hellen Kemunto Nyabuto alias Wendy was received at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) by members of her family and friends.

Wendy’s body was on arrival at JKIA transferred to Lee Funeral Home in Nairobi for preservation until Tuesday when it was ferried by road to its final resting place in Kisii.

Family members and friends paid their last respects at her rural home remembering her as a hardworking and exultant woman, who went to Canada in pursuit of greener pastures.

Wendy, who had recently relocated to Ontario, drowned while swimming on Friday August 20, 2022 in the afternoon while on Facebook Live chatting with her online friends.
