Carolyn N. Titterington

June 07, 1932 - September 09, 2018

Peabody, MA - Carolyn "Carol" N. Titterington (nee Nusbaum), age 86, of Peabody, Mass. passed away peacefully in hospice on Sept. 9, 2018, surrounded with love by her children. She was born on June 7, 1932, in Linden, N.J. to the late Theodore J. Nusbaum, Sr. and Florence (nee Stengel) and was preceded in death by her older sister Marie Caputo and younger brother Theodore J. Nusbaum, Jr. as well as beloved family friend, Elizabeth J. Smalley.
Carol graduated from Monmouth Nursing School in 1953 as a registered nurse and was a lifelong member of Monmouth Medical Center Nurses Alumni Association. She had a long career caring for patients as an addiction recovery nurse. With her former husband, Gerard V. Titterington (d. 2009) she raised four children in Danvers, Mass.
Carol had a great passion for reading and learning which she encouraged in her children and was a loyal and devoted friend who will be remembered for her sense of humor and thoughtfulness. Carol was always one to remember someone's birthday and celebrate that person with a carefully chosen gift and card.
She is survived by her treasured children Patrice A.Titterington of El Paso, Texas; Ellyn R. Titterington of Mass.; Paul G. Titterington (Maripat) of Houston, Texas and Amy E. Titterington (Makoto Obara) of Tokyo, Japan. She was a proud grandmother to five grandchildren: Li Ping and Qian Yi Titterington of Mass., Nathan Titterington of Houston, Texas., and Ayano and Akane Obara of Tokyo, Japan.
A private family service was held. Contributions in Carol's name can be made to her alma mater, Marjorie K. Unterberg School of Nursing and Health Studies at https://www.monmouth.edu/give/. Condolences can be left at www.mackeyfuneralhome.com.

What a wonderful person, brave, positive, and incredibly giving of her heart, skill and time. We had some great conversations as my grand mother was a nurse during similar times. I was honored to know her. My heart goes out to family and friends.
