Mary Jean Timmerman Obituary
MARY JEAN TIMMERMAN 1930-2018 Mary Jean Timmerman, known by her middle name as 'Jeannie' all her life, passed away July 20, 2018 at Timber Ridge in McKinleyville after suffering with dementia for a number of years. She was born in Ohio, moved to California while in grade school, graduated from UC Berkeley, and worked at Dow Chemical. After she married, her husband Harold preferred that she not work anymore. Several trips to New Zealand and Australia came after the death of her husband, places she had read about and very much wanted to see. Jeannie was an avid reader of the Christian Science Monitor and liked to keep up with world events. She joined many groups like the Rhododendron Society, Rose Society, AAUW, and NARFE. Much of her time was spent in her garden where she planted several hundred rhododendrons and many other plants and flowers. The Sierra Nevada, specifically Yosemite, was a favorite place. Climbing Half Dome in her youth was a favorite memory. Jeannie is survived by her daughter Gail, son-in-law Rod, and her grandson Wyatt. Many thanks to her caregivers at Timber Ridge Renaissance in Mckinleyville and to Hospice of Humboldt. As per her wishes there will be no memorial service. Anyone wishing to donate in her name could do so to a charity for saving the wild and beautiful places on our world or a group that you think she might have appreciated.
