In memory of
Meliora Carlisle Timmerman
Meliora Carlisle Timmerman Leander, TX April 23, 1940-January 4, 2018 Meliora Carlisle Timmerman went home to be with our Heavenly Father on Friday, January 4, 2018 in Leander, Texas. She fought an extended and valorous battle against Alzheimer's and cancer. She was born to Roscoe Carlisle and Eloise Harper in Mississippi. She is one of five siblings. She graduated from Martin Behrman High School in New Orleans in 1958 and went on to earn her degree in Applied Science for Registered Nursing from Del Mar College of Nursing in 1995. She graduated with highest honors. She was named outstanding student of the year in Psychology in 1982, also named outstanding nursing student of the year, was a member of Who's Who among Students in American Junior Colleges from 1994-1995, was a member of Phi Theta Kappa and was on the Dean's List multiple times. She was elected president of the student nursing association and went on to volunteer to tutor nursing students in her home and eventually was given a space at Del Mar College because the group grew exponentially due to its popularity and success. She managed her husband's obstetrics and gynecology practice in Corpus Christi for many years. She then pursued her passion in Watercolor and was eventually named president of the South Texas Water Color Society. She never just achieved a degree or half-heartedly pursued a passion; she mastered it. She was featured in the local Portland, Texas paper for her southern cooking; she grew and tended an English garden at her home in Douglassville, Pa, she loved her home and she loved decorating it, she also led Sunday School classes and seminars at High Point Baptist Chapel in Geigertown, Pa, and Pughtown Baptist Church in Spring City, Pa, and sang in the church choir until she no longer could. It was evident in all that she did that she loved the Lord and attending church and did so faithfully until her condition no longer allowed her to. She loved her family and loved having her children and grandchildren all together as often as she could. She was named by her Grandfather who taught Latin and her name means to make better or to become better. She embodied this sentiment. She always strived to improve herself and those around her. She is preceded in death by her husband John Timmerman of 60 years together, two sons, John & Michael, and her sister Anita (Carlisle) Pedley. She is survived by her three children, Kathrine D Paterson (Wayne) of Goliad, Texas, Elizabeth Kennedy (John) of Ponte Vedra, Fl, Christopher Timmerman (Brandi) of Gerogetown, Texas, cherished niece Aamber Copple (David) of Temple, Texas and 8 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren as well as numerous nieces and nephews, brothers and sisters, and in-laws. A graveside service will be held in Collins, Mississippi on Thursday January 10, 2019 at 11:00 am to celebrate Meliora's life. In lieu of flowers the family asks that a donation be made to the Alzheimer's Association in Meliora's memory.
