“Grandma” was born on April 10, 1918 in the Cecil Hotel, Ladysmith and lived here for all of her 87 years. She passed away on the evening of June 23, 2005. Her paternal grandparents (Timothy) were among the first residents of Ladysmith and her maternal grandparents (Dick) were pioneer residents of the Diamond District.
She was predeceased by her husband Ed, in 1982 and is survived by her only daughter, Pat (Dennis) Irvine. Grandchildren Ken (Pam), Brian (Gayle), Glenn (Stephanie); great great grandchildren: Stanley Brown, Sarah (Mike Morgan), Tyler, Jordie and Elizabeth Irvine, and great grandson Ryler Morgan.
She was predeceased by her brother Tom Timothy and sister Pat Hill and is survived by brother Bob (Phyllis) Timothy and sister Joan Davidson. She is also survived by “her boy” Bill (Diane) Hill as well as many cousins and nieces and nephews.
She was a pioneer oyster farmer and worked many long and hard hours along side her father, husband and brothers to build the Timothy Oyster Company which is now in its fourth generation.
After her husband died, she joined the Fraternal Order of Eagles and her Eagle Brothers and Sisters were truly her family. She rarely missed a meeting in the 22 years that she was a member and she was a “Past Mother” of the Auxiliary.
She was a wonderful Mother, Grandmother and Friend and will be sadly missed by all who knew her. (Private interment in Ladysmith Cemetery). Celebration of Life will be held on Wednesday, June 29, 2005 at 1:00 p.m. in the Ladysmith Eagle’s Hall.
