June 16, 2014 – Calgary, AB
Coleen Titmus, beloved wife of Don of Calgary, passed away on Monday, June 16, 2014 at the age of 81 years.
Coleen was born in Carman, Manitoba, raised in Brantford, Ontario and was the youngest of 12 children. Coleen was an athlete and excelled at baseball competing well into her 60’s. She also coached baseball and organized local teams for her children. Coleen was the ultimate organizer and leader. She was involved in her local church, the neighbourhood park association, parent teacher association, Cerebral Palsy Association, Mother’s March of Dimes and countless other bake sales and garage sales for charity. Along with her active life and raising 4 children, Coleen ran a successful small business and moved up the ranks in Avon Canada to become a district manager. Coleen was always there to serve with a smile and often a twirl and a dance. This carried through with her to her final days!
Coleen is survived by Don, her husband of 63 years; four children, Don Titmus Jr., Yvonne (Titmus) Anderson, Kelly (Titmus) Smeeth, and Jim Titmus; six grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
