She was born Oct. 29, 1869, in Ipswich, England, a daughter of Robert C. and Mary Ann Bradlaugh Newson. That year she and her mother came to the United States as converts to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and settled in Salt Lake City.

On Sept. 25, 1888, she was married to Avery J. Timms in the Logan LDS temple. He died in 1939 in Los Angeles.
