Jackie Nell Garmany Titus, was born in Trion, Georgia, to Jack and Flossie Garmany on July 17, 1949. They lived in Georgia and Alabama during her younger years and moved to the Chicago area when Jackie was 10 years old. She left us on Wednesday, Nov. 22, 2017.
She was married on July 17, 1966, to Terry Lee Titus and subsequently moved to the Titus hometown of Guthrie Center, Iowa, when Terry came home from the Army.
Jackie led a very social life while in Iowa. She was past president of the Royal Neighbors of America and past president of the American Legion Auxiliary. During this period, they were blessed with two children, Terri Lynn, born 1972, and Timothy Jack, in 1974.
The family relocated to Ocoee in 1978 after a vacation visiting her brother Gerald Creed and falling in love with Florida. During her time here she has been active in public service, volunteering at the Ocoee Fire Department four hours every Friday afternoon. She is an officer and longtime member of the Woman’s Club of Ocoee.
This after retiring from Wells Fargo Bank with a 30-year career as customer service specialist and branch manager. During her employment with the bank, she was involved in 14 robberies. During the last one, she was kicked and beaten severely, which was the cause of her declining health.
Jackie is also a member of the First Baptist Church of Ocoee.
Jackie is survived by her husband of 51 years, Terry; her daughter, Terri Lake; her son, Timothy; two brothers and three sisters, Brenda Blevins, Margaret Foell, Dorothy Nolan, Gerald Creed and Dan Garmany.
She leaves three beautiful grown granddaughters, two beautiful great-granddaughters, all of whom live out of state; and a great host of friends. She will surely be missed by her family and a multitude of friends.
My Jackie has gone home to be with her Lord and Savior. We all love you.
Jackie was preceded in death by her parents and one sister, Patricia, who was a twin to Margaret.
