Margaret Barbara (Peggy) Tittsworth, 87, of Ellicott City, MD died peacefully on Easter Sunday, April 21, 2019, at Howard County General Hospital of natural causes. She is survived by her children, Michael Hammond (Elizabeth), Shawn Hammond (Darlene), and Melissa Wald (Chris). She is also survived by her brother Robert F. Wolf.  She was predeceased by her daughter, Eileen Browning and her son, David Hammond. She was also predeceased by her husband, Calvin T. Tittsworth. She had eleven grandchildren: David Hammond, Stephen Hammond, Nicole Browning, Ryan Hammond, CJ Wald, Justin Hammond, Rachel Hammond, Kimberly Wald, Nathan Hammond, Kevin Hammond and Colin Hammond. She had six great grandchildren.

She was born in Arbutus, MD on October 22, 1931 to Robert L. Wolf and Helen G. (Davis) Wolf. She completed high school at the Institute of Notre Dame.  She was married to Walter P. Hammond in 1950. Her marriage to Walt ended in divorce. She married Calvin T. (Caddie) Tittsworth in 1970. She worked as a waitress, a school cafeteria worker, and as a clerical assistant at a restaurant equipment sales company.

She grew up attending Ascension Catholic Church in Halethorpe, MD. When she moved to Howard County, she became a member of the Church of the Resurrection in Ellicott City where she attended until she moved to Encore Assisted Living and was able to attend mass there.

She enjoyed crocheting and counted cross stitch in her later years, but was also an accomplished seamstress and made many wedding gowns, costumes for the Enchanted Forest, and uniforms for marching groups.  She also loved to watch television, enjoying John Wayne movies and any good detective shows. She especially liked Magnum PI, Perry Mason, Matlock, Murder She Wrote and Gunsmoke.

Her favorite food was chocolate - pretty much anything chocolate. Her last meal request was chocolate ice cream. She had an amazingly positive outlook on life and it served her well. She maintained a sense of humor always and kept us laughing along with her until the very last moments of her life. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends. If you knew her, you were one of her friends.
