I will so miss this wonderful women. She was the epitome of kindness and devotion to all that knew and loved her. A loving wife to Gary and a terrific mom to Lisa, Mike and Johnny, their spouses , grandchildren and great grandchildren. I was just a first cousin but always felt so much closer to her. Most importantly to me was the extreme closeness she had with my Mom and Dad who so looked forward to the visits they would make each year to New York to see the family. The world is a better place for having had Timmie in it for her 79 years and we will all miss her forever. Say hi to Grandma and Grandpa, Arnie, Belle and Ruth and Sonny you are back together again.
All my love Bobby

Timmie and Gary have been our dear neighbors and friends since moving to Viera. Their Love and Dedication to one another was legendary in this day and age. Timmie was such a good friend to all of our neighbors, especially Bess Weirich and our Mom, Lois Isenegger. They went ahead of her and I know she grieved for them, and us, daily....Our deepest sympathies, love and prayers are w/ everyone in Timmie’s Family. She will always be rememebered for her warm smile, never ever forgetting a birthday or anniversary and a big wave as
She and Gary would drive out of the neighborhood. Rest In Peace
Sweet neighbor and know we will always be here for Gary and your Family, just as you were always here for all of us We will always Love You...❤️🙏🏻

Timmie and her family have been beyond generous to our family in so many ways over many years - including literally giving us a place in their home during a time when were just starting out. We’re truly better for having known Timmie. We send our most heartfelt condolences.

I have known Timmie for over 20 years. She was a regular with the Tuesday night poker group and she was a good friend. Jim and I used to go out to lunch with her and Gary many, many times over the years and it seemed that no matter how she felt she always had a smile on her face. Family was always very important to her and I know she loved her kids so very much. She loved her dear husband Gary, who has taken care of her in these past years with all of her health issues, but she could still stop him in his tracks with one "Look". I loved her dearly and she will surely be missed by all. May you RIP my dear friend.

As long as I’ve known Lisa I’ve known Timmie. She was always a huge supporter/encourager for anything us girls did. Theater, bowling tournaments, and our many adventures with our sweet puppies. She and my mom were bingo pals. Us girls had lots of fun with our funny moms! Great memories. Lots of laughter. She will be dearly missed. She was a great influence in her fabulous family. My prayers are with each of you. 💕💕.
