For 54 years she was a devoted wife to Stephen E. Timmons, Sr.; a loving mother to Stephen Jr. (Ligita), Debra Plant (Robert), and Sharon Neustadt (Mark). She was a caring daughter-in-law to the late Isabelle and William Timmons. Her grandchildren remember her as a fun-loving grandmother — Drew and Kyle Timmons, Tomas and Mindaugas Uzkurenas, Caitlyn, Megan, Sara, and Erin Plant, and Lauren and Dexter Neustadt. Fond sister to Frances Solka (Bruce), (the late) Elizabeth, Mary Coyne (Timothy), and Peggy Brink (Thomas); a dear sister-in-law to Barbara Bame (the late James) and Jenifer Hahn (Mark); cherished by many nieces and nephews; she shall be deeply missed.
She loved her family, Thanksgiving, flowers, puzzles, and movies. She had an eclectic taste in music which she shared with her family. She could smell a bad bottle of milk 3 days before it went bad. Her life was full of love, faith, and kindness.

My sister and my best friend. I will miss her smile, her laugh, her rolling eyes. She was my straight man…Dean Martin to my Jerry Lewis. She loved her husband. She loved her family. She loved her friends. She taught me so much. I will miss her. Until we meet in Paradise, goodbye my sweet Pat.
You were such a dear special lady. We will miss you so very very much. I love you and all your wonderful family!
So very sorry to hear of Pat’s passing. Prayers and sympathy to all the family.
We have many fond memories of living next door to Steve & Pat in Cincinnati. Pat was a wonderful lady with impeccable integrity. She was always willing to help when our children were young and all of our relatives were in NW Arkansas. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.
I’m glad to have had the privilege of knowing her. I loved her spunky humor.
I will miss you, but you left behind the most wonderful family I think I have ever meant. You did a wonderful job.
I have so many wonderful memories of Pat. She had such a great sense of humor, laugh and smile and was always so welcoming and happy to see us when we visited. I loved Pat like she was a second Mom. I remember a specific time she was taking care of my brother and myself when we were little and my parents were away. I was sick and she was trying to make me feel better by insisting I drink some hot tea. Unfortunately it didn’t help and I threw up on her rug. I felt so bad but Pat was nothing but wonderful to me. I have so many memories to treasure from over the years and I will miss her very much! All my love and sympathy to Steve, Steve Jr, Debbie & Sharon.
