Mary passed away on Thursday, April 16, 2020, at St. John’s Circle of Care in Springfield, Minnesota.
Mary Clara Timmerman was born on March 1, 1923, in Omaha, Nebraska, to Henry and Clarice Lootens. In 1928 the family moved to a farm north of Minneota. On September 10, 1946, Mary was united in marriage to Andrew Timmerman at St. Edward Catholic Church in Minneota; they were married over 65 years. Andrew and Mary farmed and raised their family in Vallers Township near Green Valley. In later years, the couple wintered in Donna, Texas. Mary enjoyed ballroom dancing, playing cards, camping, fishing and sightseeing. She really enjoyed spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Mary is survived by her children and spouses: Denny (Shirley) Timmerman of Boyd; Grace (Dan) Coudron, Ron (Amy) Timmerman, Lois (Rich) Coudron, daughter-in-law Pat Timmerman, all of Marshall; and Kathy (Tim) Ricke of Minnetrista; 32 grandchildren and 71 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister Irene Verhelst of Canby and in-laws Angie Timmerman, Madeline Timmerman, Florence Soenen, and Marie and Bob Hamerlinck.

Mary was preceded in death by her husband Andrew; son Gary Timmerman; grandsons Tim Coudron, Jesse Timmerman, and Jason Timmerman; parents Henry and Clarice Lootens; sister Alice VanHecke; and in-laws Maurice VanHecke, Lucian Verhelst, Leo Timmerman, Archie Timmerman, George and Bertha DeVlaeminck and Jerry Soenen.

Grandma Mary always loved holding the new babies from her children and grandchildren. That is my favorite memory of her holding our daughter Moriah when she was one week old. Grandpa Andrew would be looking over her shoulder just loving her and the new baby.

That is nice to remember. What a long time ago! I recall trips to Emmetsburg and meals with the Hamerlincks too. Good times...

My sympathy to Aunt Mary's family. She was always so welcoming when we visited from Iowa. There is comfort in knowing she will reunite with Uncle Andrew and Gary. It will be quite the family reunion. Please know you are all in our prayers.
With Love, Julie Koeppel (Soenen)
