It is with profound sadness that the family of Verna Eileen Timmons - age 57 of Port Hawkesbury announce her peaceful passing on Thursday, February 10, 2022, at home surrounded by her loved ones. Verna was born in Antigonish, the daughter of the late Elva and Jessie "Florence" (Ryan) Timmons. She was a loving mother, grandmother, sister, and dear friend to many. Verna was the matriarch of her family. She was a devoted, supportive, caring mother and grandmother who spoiled her grandchildren to no end, never once telling them no. She will be fondly remembered for her acts of kindness, generosity, and her playful sense of humor. Verna was a thoughtful and kind-hearted friend who always had a smile on her face and a cup of tea waiting for her guests. In her free time, when she didn’t have a house full of grandchildren, Verna enjoyed playing darts, cards and never missed watching her Monday night wrestling.
