Catherine Louise Miller Timchak
Catherine Louise Miller Timchak, 75, of Suffolk, VA and formerly of Osceola Mills, PA passed away on October 19, 2016 at the Portsmouth Naval Hospital surrounded by her husband, family, and very good friend Paul (PD) Davidson.
Catherine (also lovingly known as Kay and Honey) was born on November 3, 1940 in Philipsburg, PA. She was the daughter of the late William and Verna (Socash) Miller.
She graduated from Osceola Mills High School in 1958. She was voted as best dancer in her class and loved Elvis and 50s music. She also loved bowling and playing softball in her younger days. After graduating high school, Catherine met Ronald Timchak at a dance and married him on April 23, 1960. The couple spent the next 20+ years traveling the world with the US Navy and lived in such places as the Philippines, Maine, Texas, California, Mississippi, and finally retired in the Norfolk, VA area.
In addition to her parents, she is predeceased by her sister Gloria Miller Kephart, and her brother John Miller. She is survived by her loving husband Ron; her children Wendy, Ginger, and Chris; brother Robert Miller, and sisters Marjorie Winters and Joanne Butterbaugh. She was also very proud of her four grandchildren Stevie, Heather, Veronica, and Sean; and was blessed with six great grandchildren Noah, Levi, Emery, Autumn, Paisley and Ezra.
Catherine’s wishes were not to have a funeral, but a celebration of her life with family and friends. As such, a memorial service/celebration in her honor will be held at: the Coal Run C & MA Church, Osceola Mills from 1-3 pm on Monday, July 3rd. A reception will follow.
