Martha Ann Titmus

August 30, 1932 — January 12, 2024

Boulder City

Martha Ann Titmus, age 91, of Boulder City, NV, passed away on January 12, 2024 in Las Vegas, NV.  She was born on August 30, 1932 in Martelle, Iowa to Glenn A. Brewer and Pauline E. Fewell Brewer.  She married Sigurd G. Titmus on September 27, 1953 in Pinedale, Wyoming.

 

Martha was the fourth child of six and was raised on a farm.  She had to feed the livestock before school and muck the stalls.  She also learned to drive the truck and tractor on the farm.   She preferred the outside work to the indoor housework.  After graduating from high school, she chose to go to St. Luke’s Methodist Hospital School of Nursing in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. She graduated in 1952 and moved to Rock Springs, Wyoming to work in the Obstetrical department at the hospital.   She met her husband, Sigurd, and began their family in Rock Springs.  In 1963, due to a job transfer, the family moved to Tempe, AZ where Martha worked for two hospitals and then went to work for Dr. Robert Cuthbertson in his office.  He was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and he introduced the family to the gospel.  Another job transfer brought the family to Boulder City in November 1969.  She worked many years for Dr. Harold Miller in Henderson, NV. When her children were young, she was a den mother for cub scouts and was a 4H leader.  She also served in many different callings in the church.  She enjoyed cooking, sewing, quilting, genealogy, and visiting with her grandchildren and great grandchildren. 

 

She is survived by her three children, Kathy (Leonard) Carlson of Cardston, Alberta, Canada, John (Carla) Titmus of Lehi, Utah, and Janis (Anthony) Rodriguez of Boulder City, Nevada, her granddaughter and caregiver, Angela (Joshua) Rodriguez-Zobrist as well as 15 other grandchildren, 39 1/2 great grandchildren, and 1 great great grandchild.  She was preceded in death by her parents Glenn and Pauline Brewer, her husband Sigurd Titmus, sisters Dorothy Wright, Wilma Caldwell, Mary Jo Rouse, brothers Myron Brewer, and John Brewer.
