Remembering Billie “Butch” Timmons

Billie Jo “Butch” Timmons, 57, of Logansport, Louisiana passed peacefully from this life to the next on Tuesday, June 13, 2023, at her home surrounded by family.

Visitation will be held on Thursday, June 15, 2023, at 10:00 a.m. with funeral services at 11:00 a.m. at Mt. Olivet Baptist Church, Stanley, Louisiana. Interment will follow at Mt. Olivet Cemetery. Bro. Thomas Brock will be officiating the service.

Butch was born to J.B. and Susan Sibley on November 27, 1965, in Mansfield, Louisiana. She spent her early years growing up in the small Village of Stanley. The youngest of six children, she was always looked at as the Baby. Which is probably one of the reasons she was “affectionately” called “Baby Donkey”, along with a lot of other names, by her sister Anita.

She married Eugene Timmons on May 27, 1995. They lived together in Longstreet. After a brief run as a hairdresser, she became a housewife and mother to two wonderful children, E.J. and Abbi, who she loved cooking blackberry pie and dumplings for and taking care of. Along with E.J. and Abbi, she had a host of other children that she babysat over the years that she loved and claimed as her own.

Butch was always a loving and caring daughter and sister. After the passing of her father, J.B., and sister, Rhonda, she spent much of her time trying to get her momma not to work herself silly in the yard. Which by the way is no small task. She always made her sure pills were in order and her checkbook was balanced.

She was a faithful member of Longstreet Baptist Church and was there anytime the church needed help. Her family is thankful for their prayers, along with many other family and friends, as she fought this battle. And fight she did, right to the very end. If she was here now, as Abbi will tell you, she would tell you “Don’t cry for me, I’m walking with Jesus, along with J.B. and Rhonda!”

Preceding Butch in death is her father, James Sibley; sister, Rhonda Hudspeth; father-in-law, Harold Timmons; nephew, Heath Sepulvado; and brother-in-law, Ray Woodall.

Left to cherish her memory is her mother, Susan Sibley; husband, Eugene Timmons; son, E.J. Timmons; daughter, Abbi Timmons; mother-in-law, Betty Timmons; siblings, Bubba Sibley and wife Jesse, Jackie Sepulvado and husband, Davis, Penny Shepherd, Anita Dockens, and husband, Kevin; brothers-in-law, Ryan Hudspeth and Larry Timmons; and sisters-in law, Wanda Scruggs and Brenda Woodall.
