Berna Lee Malone Timlin
Berna Lee Malone Timlin, 92, of Houston, Texas, went to heaven on February 13, 2014. She was born on February 16, 1921, in Erath County, Texas, to Ira E. and Lillie Kirkpatrick Malone. Her siblings were Harper, Tonie, Zaner, Edgar and Ira. She met her true love of 56 years, David Timlin, at Beeville Baptist Church and married him in 1940. Over the years, they lived in Mississippi; Louisiana; Norwich, England; and Houston, Texas. They were always active in a local church; she served in the WMU, VBS and Sunday school. Trusting Jesus was very important to both David and Berna, and they passed this legacy on to their four children. She loved flowers and with David maintained a beautiful garden. They enjoyed travel, going on garden club tours and trips to Europe and Canada.
Berna was preceded in death by her husband David and son Paul. She leaves behind three other children, Sherry Worthen, Mark Timlin and wife Kim, Janice Griffin and husband Charles, seven grandchildren, five great-grandchildren and many friends. She will be treasured and missed by all.
A graveside service was held Monday, February 17, 2014, at Woodlawn in Houston with memorial service to follow at Tallowood Baptist Church.
