Maureen was born in Macklin, Saskatchewan on October 16/1931 to Minor and Jean (Klotz) Comba. She moved to Liberty, Saskatchewan as a young child with her family when her father opened the local barbershop. Maureen graduated from Liberty School in 1949 and attended Moose Jaw Normal School (1949-50). After a short teaching career, she dedicated herself to family. Maureen married James Tittemore on October 06/1951. Maureen and Jim were in the same grade at Liberty School and started dating after High School. Maureen took pride in her partnership with her husband running the farm in Liberty and being a stay at home mom to her three children. This dedication and support carried on through the generations. She always said her greatest accomplishment was the love and respect of her wonderful family.
Maureen was active in the community and always volunteered when her help was needed. She was on the Local School Board and United Church Board, was a member of the UCW and was a CGIT Leader. She was also pleased with her contribution to the editing of both Liberty History books. Maureen was known for her perfect grammar and didn’t hesitate correcting family members.
Maureen’s passions were gardening, knitting, needlework, crosswords, and of course “Jeopardy”. Her appreciation for music included playing the piano and dancing. She enjoyed spending summers at the cabin at Etter’s Beach and winters in Hawaii. Maureen’s love of travel took her to many different destinations. She always stayed active especially by walking outdoors but shopping indoors at a mall counted too. Maureen was a curling enthusiast and you wouldn’t dare question her choice of favorite skip. Jim and Maureen had curled competitively throughout Saskatchewan and he would always remain the number one skip in her heart.
Following semi-retirement in 1987, Jim and Maureen moved into the town of Liberty. Maureen had recently relocated to Imperial to be closer to family.
