Mrs. Titsworth was born May 20, 1932, on the fair near Prairie View, Kan., to Adolph and Amelia (Roeder) Meyer.

She was a dedicated educator and mentor in various school districts across Kansas, primarily in Scott City for over 40 years. In that time she impacted thousands of elementary-level students. At home, her hobbies included crocheting, solving crossword puzzles, working in the yard and gardening.

Born during the Great Depression, Mrs. Titsworth was modest and humble throughout life. Although she had a quiet demeanor, she had a strong sense of conviction, a quick wit and a quirky sense of humor. She was a kind and supportive wife, mother and grandmother, known for her “family feud” inducing chocolate cake. She and her husband, Rudy, were married for over 50 years.

She was a member of the United Methodist Church and various Circle groups, Stone Club WPFA as well as the Retired Teachers Association.
