31 March, 1955 – 24 September, 2021
Wendy Lynn Kocmoud
3-31-1955 9-24-2021 Wendy Lynn Kocmoud, 66, succumbed from COVID and other complications on 9-24-21. A Chicago native, fearless and larger than life, there was not a person with more gusto for life. Self-described as “an old Hippie” Wendy loved her horses and her dogs. She loved the cruising life and especially the trips to Cuba.
Wendy loved big family get-togethers and doted on her Grandkids. She was an avid fan of the New York Bills, and could talk all aspects of football better than most guys. During the majority of her working years, Wendy was in management. A real “people person”, she loved working in the defense and construction industries. Several years ago, Wendy discovered teaching as a substitute. She worked at Burns Science in Oak Hill and at New Smyrna Beach High School. She was a favored & effective substitute teacher. “Miss Wendy” loved her kids…and they loved her. An accomplished chef, Wendy passionately followed the TV Food Channels and then created wonderful dishes with her own twists. In retirement, Wendy was active with breeding King Charles Cavalier spaniels. Several litters bear their origin from her Royal Oak Cavalier kennels.
Wendy leaves her husband of 5 years James Kocmoud of Edgewater; her Mother Marilyn Stuart of Palm Coast; her Father Ron Wrobel of Mount Dora; her Daughter Melanie Nasso of Sanford; her Son Chuck Maniatis (Natalie) of Winter Park; her Sisters Debbie (Brian) of Sanford, Cindy (Dennis) of Lake Mary, Linda of Sanford and her Grandchildren Sam, Zoie, Elaina, and Myles.
Consider a donation in her name to the Edgewater Animal Shelter, 605 Mango Tree Dr, Edgewater, FL 32141.

It is still difficult for me to think of you as having transitioned, although I know you are in good company. You had a zest for life that I admire, and we had some pretty awesome times riding our horses, hanging out watching football on the weekends, and going out to celebrate Birthdays and such. Even after we both moved...you to NC and us to VA, we still kept in touch. Your love of animals and family and friends stands out the most. I miss you my friend, and will always cherish our memories over the years. Sending our love and condolences to your sweet children and grandchildren, as well as the rest of your family and friends.
