Vickie Koppenhaver Timmons – Valley Times-News

Vickie Koppenhaver Timmons, 73, died peacefully on January 21, 2022 from diabetes and congestive heart failure. She was born on July 20, 1948 in Tampa, Florida to Vince and Marie Koppenhaver. She married her lover, friend and high school sweetheart, Stephen B Timmons on August 16, 1969.

Vickie loved Jesus and always wanted to talk about him. She sewed baby blankets for Sav-A-Life and loved to quilt. Flowers and outdoor gardening were her passion. Vickie was a wonderful cook; his spaghetti sauce was rave. She loved to spoil her high school students with her homemade frosted sugar cookies. Vickie graduated from Wayne State College in 1970 in Wayne, Nebraska, where she received a Bachelor of Arts in Education, majoring in Business.

Vickie began teaching high school in 1973 and retired in 2005. She taught business and computer science classes at Millard South and Millard West High School in Omaha, Nebraska. Hundreds of students owe their typing, shorthand and computer skills to Vickie’s teaching. She loved to write in shorthand. His life was a living example of the Bible verse, Ephesians 4:32 – “And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God has also forgiven you in Christ.” He was a kind and loving person, willing to share or lend a listening ear.
