Her fondest memories when growing up as a girl was living on South Middle Street. She recalled the 2nd Baptist Church choir singing on Sundays, and how beautiful it was. During the Great Depression, she could remember how difficult it was to eat while her father was away working on riverboats. Being the oldest child, it was one of her responsibilities to help take care of her four younger siblings. While World War II was going on, she would go out into the neighborhoods and collect desperately needed items for the war effort overseas. Many G.I.'s said "your mom did a lot for us while we were over there fighting." She collected funds to helped disadvantage children who were not as fortunate as others such as crippled children's fund, Muscular Dystrophy and March of Dimes. In 1959, she moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and Chicago and became a military wife to James Timmmerman and had three children. Retiring in 1972, the family decided to move back to her home town of Cape Girardeau. She was a den mother for the Cub Scouts and was active in the PTA. She kept the prayer line at St. Francis Hospital going. She belonged to many clubs, and always cherished the good times with her friends who she enjoyed so much. She was a good-hearted, adventurous and fun loving person that never seemed to let anything bother her. She was interred at St. Mary Cemetery in Cape Girardeau on Aug. 12, 2020. Ford and Sons Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements. *************************************************************** Pat Timmerman, 91, of Cape Girardeau, Missouri died Monday, August 10, 2020 at the Lutheran Home in Cape Girardeau.
