My deepest sympathy to the Timler family. Even though it has been many years since I have seen Mrs. Timler, I hold a warm place in my heart for her. She was gracious and loving. Opening up her home on Lake Kamineskeg for sleepovers and storytelling of her adventures as a young woman.
Wonderful memories.
Rest In Peace.
