Colleen Elizabeth Timmons

It is with broken hearts, we announce the peaceful passing of Colleen (Perfect)Timmons, at the age of 68. Colleen was the daughter of the late Archie & Theresa (Power) Perfect. 

Colleen was fun loving and always made you laugh. Even through her sickness, her sense of humour was a constant. She loved playing bingo, long chats on the phone and shopping, especially on the online yard sales.

Colleen was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and a friend. She grew up in New Waterford where she met and married the love of her life for 49 years, Nick Timmons. Together they had two daughters, Cheryl (Kevin) and Lindsay. Over the years they welcomed four grandchildren into their family, Curtis, Tyler, Emma, and Austin and her special fur babies, Missy & Rusty. Colleen also became a stepmom to Kimberley (Brad), Michael, Robert (Robyn) and Brian (Shelley). She also welcomed grandchildren, Sarah, Christian, Keegan, Brandon, Jayden, Ariella, Jordan, Kai, Brody, Keira, Abigail, and Etny.

Colleen was dearly loved by her siblings Patsy, Diane, Maureen, Brenda, Kevin and their families. She also loved her brother and sister-in-laws, Kenny (Agnes), Barb (Gary), Heather (Brian), Robin, and Rose. 

Besides her parents she was also predeceased by her brothers Ronnie, Cyril, and Archie in infancy; brother-in-laws John, Chisholm, Bunny, Billy, as well as her in-laws, Kenny and Celeste Timmons.

We would like to express our sincere thanks to the staff of the 2nd floor, New Waterford Consolidated Hospital, Palliative Care, EHS, and the staff of Cape Breton County Homemakers. If you so wish donations  may be made to any of the above mentioned.
