We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Weeks' Funeral Home
Jean Carol Timmons, 72, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her loved ones in Carbonado, WA at 12:55pm on September 1, 2022 after battling the lasting effects of cancer treatments. She fought and won her battle with cancer twice, but the last round of treatments caused too much damage for her body to withstand.
Jean is preceded by her parents, Charles John Sandor Sr. and Harriett Marie Robertson and stepfather, Robert Neal Hunt Jr.
Jean is survived by her loving and devoted husband of 44 years, Elmer Timmons. They were married on December 30, 1977.
Jean is lovingly remembered by her children, Kurtis Bowler (wife Laurie), Shelley Timmons (fiancé Jacob), Tom Timmons (wife Christina) and Lisa Timmons; grandchildren, Marisa Caldwell, Carly Young, Colet Burgener-Olson, Casey Bowler, Nathan Timmons, Rebekah Timmons, Sam Bowler and four great-grandchildren; brothers Bill Powers (late wife Karen) and Charles Sandor Jr. (late wife Linda); sisters Joan Monteith (Chris) and Roberta Sellers (Rick); many nieces, nephews, cousins and countless friends.
Jean was born in Enumclaw, WA on December 25, 1949. She was one of 5 children. She graduated from White River High School in 1968. She then went onto beauty school to become a hairdresser. She eventually moved on to waitressing, working for many years at D’Jons in Buckley, WA. She always loved taking care of people and serving them food, so this job came quite naturally for her. She married Elmer, the love of her life, in 1977. They moved to Carbonado, WA in 1978. At that time Jean’s mother came to live with the family, so Jean spent time caring for her until her passing. With four children at home, Elmer and Jean decided that she would focus on being a full-time homemaker. She dedicated her life to being a wonderful mother, wife and friend. She spent 40+ years on the Buckley Log Show Committee. She volunteered at the Carbonado Community Church Pre-School program for many years. Jean loved her students and had a lot of fond memories of her time as a pre-school teacher. She also volunteered to help lead the church’s Girls Club program as well. She had a great love for the Lord and had absolute faith in Him. Jean enjoyed spending time with her family, having family get togethers, game nights, cooking and baking, doting on her family and loving on her pets. She was a natural-born hostess, even when she wasn’t feeling well. She always made sure people were comfortable and taken care of.
Jean loved her family and friends something fierce. She was kind and caring to her core. Her smile would light up a room and she had a knack for making people feel loved and special. There isn’t anything she wouldn’t do for you if she could. She devoted her life to making sure the people she loved were happy and cared for. Jean lived a very full life and had a significant impact on the lives of the people that knew and loved her. She is greatly missed but will be forever in our hearts.
A visitation will be held at Weeks’ Funeral Home in Buckley, WA on September 11, 2022 from 1-5pm for anyone who would like to attend. A Celebration of Life will be held next year at The Timmons’ residence in Carbonado on September 2, 2023.
