Kaye Hatch Titensor

Kaye Hatch Titensor, 80, passed away surrounded by her adoring family on Monday, September 19, 2016 in Lewiston, Utah. Kaye was the oldest of six girls and one son, born to Elton Given Hatch and Zelma Orton Hatch. She was born in McCammon, Idaho, but the family soon made their home in Portland, Oregon, where she resided until the age of nine. Her father accepted a teaching position and moved the family to Burley, Idaho, where she graduated from Burley High School with high honors.  She then attended Weber State University where she received her nursing degree, as an RN.

 

Interestingly, she met her future husband, Kay Titensor, when she was 14 years old, while visiting his sister, at their home, in Cove, Utah.  Many years later, he saw a small picture of Kaye and wondered, "What ever happened to that young girl?"  He looked her up, pursued her, and nine months later they were married in the Logan, Utah Temple on November 16, 1956. This year they would have celebrated their 60th wedding Anniversary.

 

Kay and Kaye lived in Lewiston, Utah until 1970, and then moved their family to Preston, Idaho. They also spent 40 winters in Mesa, Arizona.

 

Kaye was an accomplished homemaker, beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Everyone who met her loved her. She had a beautiful, sweet spirit that drew others to her. She was very giving and service oriented, due to the example and teachings of her parents.  She looked continually for ways to serve her family and others. She loved the gospel of Jesus Christ and truly exemplified His teachings in her every action. She served in many church callings where she made lifelong friends.

 

Kaye was an excellent seamstress and homemaker. She made her girls their school, church and prom dresses, as well as piecing beautiful quilts, and other homemade items, for their trousseau's. Eating at a restaurant was a rarity, as the food from "Katie's Kitchen" could not be surpassed.

 

Kaye's greatest joy was her family and her posterity. She served them tirelessly with her many talents. She taught them music and poetry from her childhood; as well as how to crochet, knit, quilt, embroider, bake, cook and sew. She enjoyed doing genealogy and organized her pictures and memorabilia for all to enjoy.  Most importantly she taught by her example, through word and deed, the principles of the gospel and how to serve and love others.

 

Kaye is survived by her beloved husband, Lowell Kay Titensor and her children: Sidney Kay (Paula Palmer), Laura Steinmeyer (Bruce), Sharron Rolfe (Kerry), Janet Seto (Larry), Nancy Washburn (Chris) and Leslie Lloyd (Rory). She has 28 grandchildren and 25 great grandchildren. Surviving siblings: Karma Winward (Emer), Marcia Payne (Eldon), Nada Anderson (Richard), Elma Harrison (Rex) and Glade (Kris).  She is also survived by her sisters in law, Carolyn (Larry) McKnight, Valerie Karren, and many nieces and nephews.   She was preceded in death by her parents, Elton and Zelma Hatch, her granddaughter, Katie Irene and by her youngest sister, Karol (Hatch) Kerr.

 

Kaye's family would like to express their gratitude to the caring professionals at Sunrise Park Assisted Living, in Lewiston, Utah, where she spent the last five months of her life. Her caregivers assisted her with love and kindness, and in turn, they felt of her sweet spirit and gentle soul.
