Tittle, Alice

The funeral service was held at Knutsford Methodist Church on 8th March for the late Alice Tittle of Knutsford who died on 28th February 2005 in her 100th year. Alice was born in Ambleside, Cumbria to the late Alice and Robert Armer, she had seven brothers and sisters, who all predeceased her. She was brought up in Ambleside and attended the local school until the age of 13 when she left to work in domestic service. Alice came to Knutsford on her own around the age of 17 to work as a lady’s maid at the Dutch Consul. Alice married Philip Geoffrey Tittle on 30th July 1932 at St Cross Church, Knutsford they settled in Queen Street where she lived until her death. During the war Philip and Alice had two paratroopers staying with them for the duration of their training. One of their neighbours had an evacuee, who was a regular visitor and he later emigrated to Australia. Returning ten years ago, he was amazed to find Alice still living in the same house and has kept in touch ever since, phoning her the day before she went into hospital. Alice was a seamstress and she worked on her hand machine until her eyesight began to fail, she was very talented and could make, mend or alter one item into another. Her husband died in November 1965, when she joined in various activities including the Tuesday Fellowship, where she found a talent for reciting monologues. She also joined the over Sixties which she helped to run until her nineties, organising the summer outings and her book-keeping was perfect. Alice is survived by her nephews and nieces and many friends. The service at Knutsford Methodist Church was conducted by Rev Paul Wilson, prior to interment at Knutsford Cemetery. In addition to family floral tributes, donations were received for MAST. Arrangements by Dodgson’s Funeral Service, Knutsford.
