Judith Bain Titchener passed away peacefully on May 11, 2020 after a long battle with dementia. She was born in Cincinnati, September 7, 1941. Devoted wife of the late James L. Titchener, MD and stepmother to late Antoinette (Annie). Judy was preceded in death by her parents Mary and Bill Bain, brother, John Bain and sister Donna Christos. Loving sister of MaryAnn (Gene) Cariola, Pat (late Bill) Nieman, Joanne (Paul) Breitenbach, Bill (Barb) Bain. Special aunt to Leslie & Mike McCarthy. Also survived by many nieces, nephews, family and friends.
Judy graduated from McNicholas High School and entered the convent with the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary in Rhode Island. She served the order and lived in New York, Boston, St. Louis and Peru. Judy graduated from Marillac College in St Louis. She spoke fluent Spanish and after leaving the convent became a Spanish teacher at Hughes High School. She was a long-time parishioner of Bellarmine Chapel. She was a compassionate volunteer for St. Vincent De Paul Society and she and Jim were avid supporters of the Arts in Cincinnati.
Judy married Jim in 1982 and they traveled the world extensively. She was dedicated to Jim and Annie. When Jim was diagnosed with Parkinson’s, she took care of him in their home with little outside assistance. Annie had Down syndrome and Judy ensured Annie’s life was full, with paint workshops and daily activities and outings.
The family would like to thank Bayley Place for the extraordinary care and compassion they showed Judy during the nearly four years she lived there. Due to the Corona virus, a memorial mass and celebration of her life will be held at a later date. Her cremains will be interred at Spring Grove Cemetery. Memorial donations can be made to The Society of St. Vincent de Paul, Bellarmine Chapel, C/O Jim Doerger 31 Frick Ct. Cincinnati, Oh 45246 or a charity of your choice.
