Wynn Ellen (nee Peacock) Themelis
July 14,1949-Aug 10, 2021
Wynn was a lover of life! She grew up in Alameda, California attending Porter School and Alameda High. She was an accomplished tap dancer and loved playing the violin. Wynn attended the University of Oregon and Lane Community College where she earned her nursing degree and was an ICU nurse on the Peninsula at Kaiser Hospital and Mary's Help Hospital (now Seton Hospital). While in Oregon Wynn met Nick. They later married and lived in both Pacifica and Hillsborough raising Christopher and Cassondra, to whom Wynn was devoted. She had a wonderful sense of humor, loved their yearly family visits to Lake Tahoe, road trips with daughter Cassondra, their beloved dogs, cooking, music, the San Francisco Ballet, museums, the theater and visits to Filoli. She doted on grandchildren Amy and Andrew.
Wynn passed away in the early morning hours of August 10th from complications due to Alzheimer's after a valiant 13-year battle. Wynn was predeceased by parents William "Frank" Peacock and Iris Peacock. She is survived by her husband Nick, son Christopher (Florence), daughter Cassondra, grandchildren Amy and Andrew, sister Gail De Bellis (Dominick), sister-in-law Georgia Morrow and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews and grand nieces and nephews.
