Dear Family
Your Mom was such a special lady and friend. She could make a situation better by just listening and adding her love and input to the conversation.
Have hope in tomorrow, have faith in the everlasting and take comfort in the love of friends and family.
She has left a beautiful legacy. We will truly miss her laugh, quick wit and the love she so freely shared.

I'm going to miss you Deb. We had a lot of good times together. I remember sitting on the patio at Earl's in Saskatoon having a good time, enjoying appetizers and drinks only to realize neither one of us had any money to pay the bill so we had to be rescued. Thank you to Baron for bringing Deb to our 40th anniversary in Calgary.
It meant a lot to me and it was wonderful to see Deb again. My condolences to your family and may you rest in peace. You deserve it.
You're good friend,
Patsy

As I read all the beautiful tributes to Debbie, I want to say, yes, she was that and more, for her whole life. She was true to her word and followed everything through to completion. Debbie was relentless about things that mattered, more than anyone I’ve known. In her ‘heart of hearts’ Debbie was a true academic. She thrived on learning, thinking, questioning, deliberating, and resolve. We loved our times together, whether it was in the Okanagan on the boat or her place in Stony Plain. It wouldn’t take long for our conversation to lead to the multiple books we were reading simultaneously, our intense interest in Christian apologetics, our favourite apologists, Nabeel Quereshi, Ravi Zacharius, John Lennox, past debates, and debates to come. We never read novels, I guess that’s why we liked People Magazine. We shared a love of hockey, and enjoyed many games during the Gretzky/ Oilers glory years with Debbie’s primo seats in the Coliseum above the goalie. I was a huge fan of Yari Kurri. It was no surprise that soon after the celebration of his jersey retirement and raising to the rafters I received a large envelope with every piece of Yari Kurri paraphernalia from the event. Debbie was so very interesting, I believe because she was so genuinely interested in everyone she encountered. If things were important to you it was important to her to the detail. Debbie loved talking about our parents, her children and Macy and Willa, all of our brothers and sisters and their families, and her dearest friends, so lovingly. As you see, I could talk about her forever. Debbie was the best daughter, mother, nana, sister, auntie, and friend. Debbie was the best of us. I do not know life without her. As my broken heart heals, there will be a part that never heals, that will be quietly longing for that time when I will see her again with my parents, and my brother Mark, for eternity. The Lord’s goodness has blessed our family for generations and we are so grateful. Love Lolo

As each Family member grieves, especially:
Leah, Bree, Barron & Debbie’s,(Dear Grandchildren).
Forever remember;
Angles are always near to whisper
[Your Mom, Grandma or Loved one, “Debbie,” is safely in God’s hands.]
From reading the other heartfelt condolences;
I’ve missed meeting a beautiful fellow Christian.
Debbie Timmons was my husband Wade’s relative on the Barron side.
Her passing brings him deep sadness.
Our Christian Faith stands combined with others;
that the promises of God, "Debbie believed in”, are ‘true’.
May the Hope of heaven give you peace, &
the tender Touch of God’s “Agape” Love bring everyone comfort.
Sincerely: Wade & Lizzie Barron
Edmonton, AB

Debbie Timmons is a beautiful child of God who lived what she believed. Debbie demonstrated what it meant to love the Lord with all her heart, soul, and mind, and to love others as herself.
She was my lovely friend, my bible study cohort, my fiercely loyal prayer partner. Deb was a spiritual mentor who taught me so much about out Lord and His Word. She would, however, be rather embarrassed by all the tributes and praise. She would only want her life to honour and glorify God. She enjoyed life to the full, loved to laugh and party with friends and family. She did, however, see herself as flawed and imperfect but knew she was forgiven and saved by grace. Deb was so smart and she did not suffer fools gladly. She had a razor sharp wit and you did not want to mess with her if you crossed her line of what she believed was right and just.
Debbie has raised three beautiful children who are so like her. They have demonstrated inexhaustible devotion and courage through this hard journey of suffering.
How they love her!
How I love her!
How she loved Jesus!

Our heartfelt condolences to Bree, Barron and Leah on the passing of their mother,
We haven't known Debbie for a long time but were fortunate in meeting her at Barron and Becky's residence for the birthdays of her granddaughters Macy and Willa.
We enjoyed the company of Debbie,as she was very engaging and had an interest in everyone. We can see why Debbie had so many wonderful things mentioned about her by those that knew her for many years, such as her beautiful nature, her love for the Lord, her love of life, being a model person as a student, and so many more wonderful attributes.
She will surely be welcomed in Heaven and as the song says "Welcome to Heaven my child".

To my Dear Friend Debbie,
I’ll miss your smile and our giggles together. I’ll miss our walks and tea dates. I’ll miss our conversations about our beautiful children and grandchildren. You’ve always walked with the Lord beside you and with his love and guidance you have been a light to me. May your light continue to shine into your families lives to give them peace through their sorrowful days. ❤️
