George Timian

George Timian, 93, of Langdon, ND, passed away Monday, February 24, 2020, at Maple Manor Care Center in Langdon.

George Henry William Timian was born September 15, 1926, in Dresden, ND, to Bernhard and Erna (Buchweitz) Timian. He grew up and attended school in the Dresden area, graduating from Langdon High School in 1945. He joined the US Army in 1951 and served until being honorably discharged in 1953. On December 18, 1953, he married Ella Schumacher in Egeland. George was a farmer at heart and farmed near Dresden almost his entire life.  He and Ella moved to Langdon in the 1960s, but he continued farming until 1988 when he retired. Even after retiring, he continued helping out on the farm until he was 89 years old. George enjoyed having his coffee and visiting every afternoon at the bakery, playing pinochle, and doing woodworking in his basement. He especially liked family gatherings and having company. George was a member of Langdon American Legion Post #98, was a church elder for Our Redeemer Lutheran Church, and caretaker of the Immanuel Cemetery near Dresden.

Surviving George are his wife, Ella, Of Langdon, ND; children: Robert (Mary Beth) of Bismarck, ND, Daryl (Linda) of Langdon, David (Mickey) of Langdon, Margie (Greg) Marshall of Burlington, ND, and Sharon Sharp of Winston-Salem, NC; grandchildren: Mitchell Westin, Amy Jesperson, Aaron Timian, Sarah Timian, Eric (Amy) Timian, Colin (Julie) Marshall, Katlin Marshall, and Shawn Marshall; four great-grandchildren; and brother Richard Timian. He was preceded in death by his parents and siblings: Orville, Edna Morey, Victor, and Ben Edward.

Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, February 28, 2020, at Redeemer Lutheran Church in Langdon, ND. Visitation will be from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 27 at Brooks Funeral Home in Langdon. Burial will be in the spring at Immanuel Cemetery near Dresden.

Heartfelt sympathy to Ella and the Timian family. I have so many great memories living next door to these wonderful people on the farm and the many seasons George took care of all the skaters at the arena. Weather it was sharpening our blades, selling candy or just keeping things in order, George was always ready to help, smile and visit. Bless his soul and memory.

George and your family became a very important part of my life when I moved to Langdon in 1972. Your family was so welcoming and opening. He was so welcoming to Cindy when she became part of Redeemer when we married. May the memories help you through the days ahead.

Im trying to remember if there ever was a time that George was not a winner after spending an afternoon with him playing pinochle. He would always let Diesel and me plus whoever was playing with us beat up on each other and take sets while he casually racked up his score. Sure we won a game or two but at the end of the day we always seem to pay George. Thanks for the lessons Kevin Waslaski

I believe my brother Virgil ellingson knew George well! He worked on the Burlington Northern railroad for 35 years, And his wife diane ellingson was the librarian in Langdon and also sold avon products in the area. We are sorry for your loss and this scripture is such a comfort to so many! 2 Corinthians 1:3,4;
