Ann Margaret Timms was born in Olton, Solihull, near Birmingham England.
Daughter of Audrey and Charles Fairley, Ann is survived by sister Barbara (Australia), brother Mike (England), her two granddaughters Lily and Margaret Timms, as well as her two sons Simon and Paul Timms. She had many lovely nieces and nephews in England and Australia.
Ann’s life was full of adventure, kindness and love. As immigrants, she arrived in the United States in 1967 with her husband and two sons. Ann lived in Georgia, Wisconsin, California, Arizona, Oregon and finally Washington.
There was also five years of living in Singapore in the 70s and many years of traveling the world and visiting her native England.
Ann owned a cross-stitch store, a quilt store and worked as a home health nurse. She was a voracious book reader and a great cook and bread maker. Polite to a fault, funny and so sweet, Ann was amazing at keeping up with old friends and family from years past. She never forgot a birthday.
Mom never let a day go by without keeping up with the latest regional and national news. A progressive liberal, she was shocked and disappointed to see the current state of politics in her adopted country. She won’t miss that.
Please stop by to join us for laughs, drinks and food to celebrate summer and Ann’s life anytime from 1 p.m. to dusk July 15 at 6590 Maxwelton Road, Clinton.
Ann’s favorite charity was the Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest in Cle Elum, Wash. She would love to know there were some donations given to them in her name.
Mom, you are missed.
