Nicole (Spencer) Timmons


On May 1, 2022, a beautiful, intelligent, passionate, free-spirited woman was ripped out of the arms of those who loved her.

Nicole Louise (Spencer) Timmons, 43, St. Paul, MN, died a broken and alone woman as the result of a number of things, the pandemic, struggle with a meth addiction, and a broken heart are ultimately what killed her. Drugs are not what defined Nicole. There was so much more to her than a needle and the next high.

Nicole’s remission from drugs started on February 4, 2014 and ended sometime in Spring 2021. Over the 7 plus years those around her experienced the real Nicole.

She loved life and loved deeply. A force to be reckoned with, she looked at each day as a new beginning, wringing as much joy and fulfillment out of it as possible. She was tenacious and fought for what she believed in with every fiber of her being. A very proud woman, she viewed each new accomplishment as a winning battle against addiction.

Being committed to sobriety and attending meetings opened the door to many wonderful things for Nicole, even jumping out of a perfectly good plane! Meeting Donna Shultz-Davis, who was much more than a sponsor led her to becoming a sponsor herself, positively impacting many lives. She met James Timmons the love of her life at a meeting.

Nicole was a Customer Service Manager for Kim and Ron Krueger at Custom Tube Company Inver Grove, Heights MN. A career she exceled at and loved.

Nicole is survived by her husband James Timmons, St. Paul, MN; son Jamie Perry Jr. Elma, GA; daughters Catherine Staerk, Philadelphia, PA and Bella Zimmerman (Sophia Badheartbull) Portsmouth, VA., fur babies Freya and Willow; brother John Jr. Krawza (Nicole Opland); Sister Scotty Sue Spencer (Tom Slossen); Step-sisters Carrie Pierce (Ed Pierce); all of Superior, WI and Christie Turner (Duane Turner) Rice Lake WI; special nephews – Sy, Ty, Damen, Raven, and Stanley and nieces Darinn and Irene. Parents John and Robin Krawza as well as many special people who loved her.

Nicole is reunited now with her beloved grandparents Robert and Mollie Spencer; niece Justice Kennedy, and very special fur-baby Nupers as well as many other beloved family/friends and birth father Gary Wermter.
