Perdida Timm, 46, of Omak, Wash., passed away on Highway 97 on Aug. 21, 2012. Perdida was born in Sacramento, Calif. on June 3, 1966 to Jocelle and Dan Brooks.
Although her life resembled those rocky crags she once loved to climb, she succeeded in pulling herself up from the ashes and blazed through the academic world. From an honor student in high school to receiving her bachelor’s degree from Seattle Pacific University, she went on to receive her master’s degree in education from Heritage College. At that point, she began her life's work, helping troubled children in her business, Children's First. She was a guardian ad litem, a protector of the innocent, helpless and often mute in our world. Perdida was a part of just about every outdoor activity you could think of, and therefore, made a brilliant addition to the local Girl Scouts.
Perdida was survived by her daughter, Tiffany Timm, age 24; and her son, Mason Timm, age 17.
A memorial gathering will be held at 4 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 2, 2012 at Phillip Skirko's home at 71 Salmon Creek Road, Okanogan.
