Johnnie was born February 4, 1924, on the family ranch near Newell to Hugo and Emma (Jenssen) Reiche. She attended the Schultz Country School on the Homestead and graduated from Newell High School in 1941.
She worked in Belle Fourche at a drug store and soda fountain where she met William Timm.
On February 21, 1950, she married William "Bud" Timm at Miles City, MT.
The couple lived in Belle Fourche before moving to the Reiche ranch. Bud and Johnnie soon purchased the ranch. Johnnie was able to take care of her father and help Bud on the ranch.
She enjoyed her garden, canning, flowers, and was an excellent shot with her .410. In 1979, they bought the Ray Schild farm on the Horse Creek and Belle Fourche River where they worked both places for several years.
In 1984, the couple retired and moved to Newell where Johnnie continued to take care of her family. She was a wonderful cook and loved being a grandmother to many.
Survivors include her sons, Casey (Debra) Timm, Vale, and Gary Timm, Newell; six grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Bud; one son, Lance; two brothers, Sig and Hugo; and three sisters, Hilda, Irma, and Louise.
