TRIBUTE TO TIMMYE CROWLEY OF YELLOWSTONE COUNTY
Mr. DAINES. Mr. President, today I have the distinct honor of recognizing Timmye Crowley of the United States Postal Service in Yellowstone County for her dedication to serving her fellow Montanans and a unique act of kindness that saved a man’s life.
Timmye has worked for the United States Postal Service for more than 20 years, delivering countless letters and packages to the people of Montana. Recently, on her day off, she decided to extend a helping hand during this busy season by making additional deliveries along her normal route. As she approached a house which she knew belonged to an elderly resident, she decided to walk up to the front door to personally deliver this man’s mail, in an effort to avoid the man potentially falling on the icy sidewalks, which are a common sight during Montana winters.
Upon reaching the front door, Timmye realized smoke was billowing out of the house and suspected there was a fire inside. She saw through the window that the man was asleep in a chair and promptly began pounding on the door to wake him up to ensure he would not get hurt. The man was hard of hearing, so he was unaware of the smoke detector alarms. He soon woke up and walked to the front door as Timmye called 9-1-1. First responders arrived on the scene shortly, and the man was no longer in danger.
Thanks to Timmye’s efforts, a potentially fatal outcome was avoided. It is my distinct honor to recognize Timmye Crowley for her passion and willingness to go the extra mile serving the Billings community. Keep up the great work, Timmye. You make Montana proud!
