Sandra K. Thieme
With profound sadness we announce the passing of Sandee Thieme on January 3, 2021. She was a loving and devoted mother, spouse, grandmother, sister, and friend to all those fortunate enough to have known her.
Sandee was born July 21, 1946 In Orange County, CA and lived most of her adult life in Denver with her loving husband, Bill Thieme. Her children Nicole Somerville, Jill Forman, and Aaron Thieme, grandchildren Anna Luetjen, Autumn Luetjen, Kate Forman, Jacob Forman, Maya Thieme and Mason Thieme and her many nieces and nephews gave her great joy. She owned a successful interior design showroom and was an accomplished author of two books, but those who knew her will remember Sandee as a selfless, loving, kind, and generous woman who lived to serve others.
She lived her daily life as an example of resolute commitment to faith, family and those in need. Whether it was spending time with grandkids for weeks at a time, taking her husband on trips around the world, being present for every single milestone her children achieved regardless of when or where, or praying with a friend in need, God’s light shined through her steadfast commitment to others. Sandee touched people in unforgettable ways that gave them love, comfort, support, security, and strength. She focused her thoughts and efforts outward to others in ways that changed lives. Through her service to others in her church congregations, Bible studies she led, years of volunteer service in hospice, or providing for a struggling family until they got on their feet, Sandee lived her life putting others’ needs above her own.
Sandee’s journey to meet her Lord following her brain cancer diagnosis in November 2020 was just as she lived her life: full of peace, love, an unwavering faith and trust in God with a kind grace to others. Along with her husband, children, and grandchildren she leaves behind her brothers Allen Whorton, Curtis Whorton, and TJ Adams in addition to hundreds of people who have known and loved her will miss her dearly. Sandee’s younger sister, Linda Taylor, passed away several years ago.
Her family, devastated by her early departure, are humbly grateful to God for His love and grace given through His earthly angel and are thankful to have had the gift of Sandee Thieme in their lives.
