Posted in Wykoff Obituaries

Betty Timm, 90, of Wykoff, Minn., passed away peacefully Sunday, March 2, 2014, at the Spring Valley Senior Center.

She was born Aug. 7, 1923, in Forestville, Minn., to Lulu (Jeffers) and Charles Schwartz. She lived most of her life in the rural Wykoff area. After graduating from Chatfield High School, Class of 1942, she spent several years with her sisters in southern California where she worked for the IRS. She returned to Minnesota soon after World War II, and married Irvin Timm, her husband of 62 years, on Mother’s Day, May 13, 1951. Betty and Irvin lived on their farm in rural Wykoff for nearly 60 years before moving to the Spring Valley Senior Center. In addition to the many demands of being a farm wife and mother, she also went to school in 1967 to 68 to obtain her licensed practical nurse degree. She then worked as a nurse at Olmsted Community Hospital and as private duty nurse for more than 20 years.

A very energetic woman for all of her life, among the many things she enjoyed were caring for her grandchildren and other children, flower and vegetable gardening, canning, raising pets and orphaned animals, making delicious home-cooked meals, playing cards and sewing. She had a lifelong soft spot for children, the disadvantaged and for anyone needing a little extra support.

She is survived by her husband, Irvin; daughter, Donna Marie Kubesh (Don), of New Hampton, Iowa; and sons, Thomas Craig Timm (James Wilterding), of Albuquerque, N.M., and Terry Timm (Janice), of Rochester, Minn.; former daughter-in-law, Cheryl, of Chatfield; sister-in-law, Mayvis Schwartz, of Pilot Mound, Minn.; seven grandchildren; and nine great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by four sisters, Carol, Maxine, Dorothy and Bernadine; and three brothers, Fritz, Charles Jr., and Sheldon.

Funeral service was on Thursday, March 6, at St. Paul Lutheran Church, with Pastor Preston Paul officiating.

Visitation was on Wednesday, March 5, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Riley Funeral Home in Chatfield, one hour before the service at the church. Burial was in the St. Paul Lutheran Cemetery in Chatfield.
