Wendell decided to hold off their vaccinations, a decision that would prove fatal. So instead of attending her wedding, which was set for August 21, her family is planning her funeral.
Her funeral service will be held at the same church they were to get married.
However, before her six-week battle with the virus, Wendell had changed her mind.
The couple had planned to get vaccinated in July ahead of their honeymoon in Mexico.
Her grieving fiancé said that they were college sweethearts as they met during orientation in their first year and were looking forward to tying the knot.
Speaking to the press, Wendell's cousin said that misinformation had killed her and urged others to learn from her passing.
"If we can save more lives and families’ lives, then this is the gift that she left for us to deliver."
