Mildred Chelemedos

Mildred (Kay) Chelemedos, 95, of Edmonds, passed away peacefully on November 21, 2017. She was the beloved wife of Peter Chelemedos, with whom she shared 74 years of marriage. Born and raised in Fall River Massachusetts, on June 27, 1922, they met in New York City, married during World War II, and settled in Seattle in 1946. In 1955 they moved north to Meadowdale.

Kay was a devoted mother, serving as Cub Scout leader for her son, and Blue Bird and Campfire leader for her daughter in the 1950's. Later she was active in the League of Women Voters, local Democratic politics, the University Unitarian Church and the Shoreline Unitarian Church.

A lifelong learner, she loved books on history, science fiction, fantasy, as well as biographies and mysteries. Membership in the Sherlock Holmes Society, the Seattle Storytellers Guild, the Audubon Society among others, kept her busy.

She always had sympathy for the underdog and donated regularly to many charities too long to list.

Her last years were spent residing with her husband at Edmonds Landing Retirement residence in Edmonds.

She was preceded in death by her son, Peter Steven, and survived by her husband, Peter, and her daughter, Penelope Haase, also of Edmonds.

A truly kind, generous, warm-hearted and loving woman. Kay engendered everything a growing boy and man could ever desire in a grandmother - even without being related by blood. Always a smile on her face, always a hug to be shared, always up for an adventure, always a lesson to teach, always an experience to provide, and always ensured her lip stick was on before she left the house! Having Kay in my life is a singular honor that brings brightness and warmth to my heart and soul - even in her passing. Condolescences to her family - she preceeds us on the greatest adventure and awaits us there. Rest In Peace from a life well lived.

My mother was a strong, kind, and generous woman who cared about others and maintained a warm sense of humor throughout her years. I will miss her always.
