Patricia Timblin was born on March 7th 1928 in the home of her parents Rex Timblin & Mahala Nettleingham in Colburn Idaho where she grew up.  She had two older brothers, Melvin (Viola Montgomery) (Pat Wills) and Jim (Lucille Miller).  She also had an older half-sister Lucille (Max Cunningham), an older sister Mabel Anna who died before she was three and two younger sisters, Mary Ellen (Harry Roberts) and Carol (Lloyd Peiffer). All of her siblings and their spouses have passed away except for Lloyd.


Pat graduated a year early in May of 1945 from Sandpoint High School.  After graduation she and her good friend Opal Oliver worked in Spokane and stayed with Pat's Aunt Esther Helgeson, but Pat returned home by August of 1946.


Pat met Lyle Evans on a blind date and they were married on November 30tj 1946 in Thompson Falls Montana.  Lyle shot a deer and dressed it out on the way home from Thompson Falls.


After the marriage, Pat & Lyle initially lived in Sandpoint, Farragut and Ephrata Washington.


Pat & Lyle had two boys Daniel Lyle on May 17 1949 and David Patrick on July 11th 1950, both born in Sandpoint, Dan in the old Page Hospital and David in the new Bonner General Hospital.


Lyle, with the help of his brothers, in 1951 built their house at 1004 N. Ruth in Sandpoint from lumber from the old Community Grange Hall in Colburn. They lived there until the mid-1970's when they moved to a house on Colburn-Culver road in Colburn.


Pat helped her husband Lyle in the smoked fish and huckleberry business on Pine Street, worked as a telephone operator in Sandpoint, Newport, CDA, a Real Estate agent, worked at the Pastime, and worked and retired as an office manager at Penneys in Sandpoint & Ponderay.


In 1997 and 1998 Lyle and Pat spent a year on a farm in Chasley North Dakota where they were snowed in for 10 days in an ice and snow storm.


They returned to Colburn in late 1998, and in 2004 Lyle and Pat moved to the Lake Stevens rural area to live with their son Dan and his wife, and when Dan retired, Pat & Lyle moved with Dan & Janet to a home on Lakeshore Drive in Sagle.


Pat died at home on August 9th 2022 with part of her family around her.


She loved making quilts, reading, sewing, gardening, cross-word and jig saw puzzles, making pies & cinnamon rolls, playing games and enjoyed having her grandchildren and great grandchildren around her. Pat's family was her life's focus.
