Lindsay “Spinds” Jaclyn Nedwin, a 32-year old beautiful soul of light and love, left this earthly realm in January 2020, after an extremely courageous 17-month battle against glioblastoma. Lindsay was a beautiful, cheerful, funny, thoughtful, generous, and loving daughter, sister, wife and friend. She put all her energy into the things that meant most to her, and made lasting connections with people of all ages and walks of life. She was a dedicated nurse, addressing her patients with “My Friend,” and often receiving letters from them and their families, thanking Lindsay for her loving and compassionate care.
Lindsay entered the world in January 1988 along with her identical sisters Allie and Elise, in San Francisco. She grew up in Davis, graduating from DHS in 2006, Colorado State University in 2010 with a BS in Biology, and CSU Stanislaus with a BS in Nursing. She worked at Desert Regional Hospital in Palm Springs and Sutter Hospital in San Francisco.
Lindsay loved her life. She loved caring for people, her career as a cardiology nurse, skiing, dancing and traveling. While fighting for her life, she traveled to Hawaii, Disneyland, New Orleans, her beloved family cabin at Lake Almanor, the Triangle X Ranch, in Wyoming where she loved riding horses in the Tetons with her family, and after her September 2019 wedding, she honeymooned in Switzerland. More than anything else, Lindsay deeply loved her family, especially her beloved triplet sisters Elise Nedwin and Allie Smith (Jes), her parents Julie and Glenn Nedwin, her much loved husband Eric Gonzales, her extended family, and many dear friends. In her last months of life, people from all over the country visited her.
We will be celebrating Lindsay’s amazing and joyful life on a date to be determined in late April/Early May. Please send memories, thoughts and stories to share, to firstname.lastname@example.org before April 21. You can also send photos or short (30 sec or less) video memories about Lindsay. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the American Brain Tumor Association (https://www.abta.org/) and perform a random act of kindness in Lindsay’s memory. She would like that.
