Memorable Manitobans: Kenneth Calvin Timlick (1924-1989)

Funeral director.

Born at Greenridge on 4 April 1924, son of Jason Timlick (1888-1985) and Bertha Lillian Knox (1893-1928), he worked for over 30 years as a funeral director, first at Thomson Funeral Chapel and Bardals Funeral Home at Winnipeg and later of his own Carberry Funeral Parlor at Trail, British Columbia. In the late 1950s, he returned to Manitoba, established the Pineview Memorial Gardens in Winnipeg, and opened the province’s first crematorium. It served Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and western Ontario. He married Jean Marie Ivey (1930-2015) and they had four children. He died at Coquitlam, British Columbia on 10 September 1989 and was buried in the Green Ridge Cemetery.
