Marlys Janelle Thieme Obituary
Marlys Janelle Thieme

Marlys Thieme passed on peacefully in Seattle, in the loving presence of her family, on February 16 at the age of 79. She was born on Aug. 10, 1934 in Everett WA to Augie and Ruth Mattson. She attended Everett HS, where she was active with the Seagals, and caught the eye of her husband Bob. Marlys and Bob attended the University of Washington, where she was a Tri-Delt and he an SAE - they married after graduation and life's adventures began. Sharing a 58-year marriage, they raised four children who treasured the summer family boating trips, ski trips and just being together. Members of Queen City Yacht Club, Marlys and Bob were avid boaters, and spent their summers cruising to Desolation Sound on their Oasis. Marlys was a tenacious crab shucker, and loved to walk the beach collecting agates and driftwood. After the boating years, their travels took them around the world. Later in her life, Marlys enjoyed puzzles, playing bridge, and she rarely missed a Mariners game. Her sweet blue eyes, warm smile and sense of humor will remain in the loving memories of family and friends. She is survived by husband, Bob, daughters Julie Shefts (Sasha) and Carolyn Westmoreland (Eddie); sons Steve (Sheila) and Chis (Marcie); and 9 grandchildren. A private celebration of her life is planned.
