Titcomb <! >

4/26/31 ~ 5/24/03

Thelma Tuttle Titcomb, 72, passed away on Saturday, May 24th at her home in Springville, Utah.

She was born in Springville on April 26th, 1931, the only daughter of Byron and Emily Strong Tuttle.

Thelma grew up in Springville and graduated from Springville High School. Soon after, she met her future husband, Neal R. Titcomb. They were joined eternally in the Salt Lake Temple on April 7th, 1954. The two lived and

raised a family almost exclusively in Springville.

Thelma's passion was for sewing, a trade she learned from her mother. Both were fantastic quilters and accomplished seamstresses. Thelma got her start at Barbizon fabric store and later became well known for her work for the Brigham Young University Ballroom Dancers and at Fred Astaire Studios, where she created ballroom gowns and costumes for decades. Thelma was also an active member of the LDS church where she served in the Primary and Relief Society presidencies.

Thelma was a gentle and generous person who enjoyed nothing more than

spending time with her husband, children and family. She was also a loyal

friend and kept in touch with a tight-knit group of girlfriends whom she had known since high school. Thelma touched many lives; she was loved dearly and will be missed.

She is survived by her husband; son, Kevin Neal (Cathrine) Titcomb; daughters, Karen Titcomb and Vicky Lynn Giles; twelve grandchildren; four

great-grandchildren; as well as brothers Earl W. (Laurel) Tuttle, Donald B. (Kathryn) Tuttle, and Glenn E. (Iva) Tuttle. Thelma was preceded in death by her parents and brother, Harold (Elsie) Tuttle.

Funeral services will be held at the west Hobble Creek stake center at 555 S. 600 E. Springville on Thursday, May 29th at 11:00 a.m., preceded by a viewing from 9:45-10:45. Interment will be at Evergreen Cemetery in Springville following the services.
