Billie Gail Etheridge

(Dec. 13, 2007)

Billie Gail “Tim” Etheridge died Thursday, Dec. 13 in Dallas, Texas.  She was 83.

Affectionately known as “Tim,” she married Paul Etheridge in 1992, and they enjoyed dancing and traveling the word until his death.

She was born Nov. 5, 1924, in Brady, Texas. Married in 1945 to Randy Randolph,  they were newlyweds in the Sonoma Valley of California, lumberjacks in northern Idaho, and homesteaders in Wyoming and Idaho. In 1964, they returned to their native Texas and founded Randolphs’ Taxidermy in Corpus Christi.

Following Randy’s death in 1987, Tim met up with old friend, Paul Etheridge, at a reunion of homesteaders in Powell, and they married. Tim will be greatly missed, as will her zest for life, love of family and friends, and fantastic cooking.

She was preceded in death by her two husbands and brother James Hughes. She is survived by son Fred (Nina) Randolph; daughter Julie (Fred) Anderson; stepdaughter Charla (Frank) Carlson; grandchildren Jarett Randolph, Kristin Anderson, and John Anderson; step-grandchildren Elena Wilde, Mariana Wilde, Cameron (Lana) Carlson, and Shani (Bill) Ferry.

Funeral service is scheduled at 1 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 18 at Seaside Funeral Home Chapel. Interment will follow at Seaside Memorial Park in Corpus Christi.
