Billie Jean Timmons, loving person

May 2, 2021

Billie Jean Timmons, 60, of Frankford passed away suddenly Friday, April 30, 2021, at Atlantic General Hospital in Berlin, Md.  

She was born in Easton, Md., July 9, 1960, to the late Julian Thomas and Beatrice Louise Lathbury Burton.  In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her husband Francis E. Timmons Jr. in 2003, as well as two brothers, Gary Wilkerson and Steven Burton.

Billie Jean worked as a manager of Ferschke’s Beauty Supply in Milford and also Mark’s Cigarette Outlet in Seaford for many years.  Her hobbies included painting and crafting.  Billie Jean was a very loving and caring person who would always put others before herself, but she also had a stubborn and opinionated side to her as well, and would definitely let you know exactly how she felt. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend who will be dearly missed by all who knew her.

She is survived by a daughter, Hope Timmons (Reuben Pruitt) of Delmar; and a son, Timothy Timmons (Jade Ottinger) of Frankford; a sister, Penny Burton Meadows (Gary) of Salisbury, Md.; and two brother, Jackie Burton (Mary Beth) of Millsboro and Wayne Burton of Salisbury.  She also leaves behind three grandchildren whom she loved dearly, Steve Holleger, Samantha Holleger and Kristen Holleger, as well as two great-grandchildren who were her pride and joy, Riley Norris and Steven Holleger Jr.  She also leaves behind a special sister-in-law and friend, Sheila Timmons, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.

A funeral service will be held at 1 p.m., Thursday, May 6, at Watson Funeral Home, 211 S. Washington St., Millsboro, where friends may call from noon to 1 p.m, for viewing and visitation.  Interment will follow at Carey’s Cemetery in Millsboro.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in Billie Jean’s memory can be made to the American Heart Association, 131 Continental Drive, #407, Newark, DE  19713.
