She was baptized into Church of the Firstborn on June 25, 1955 by Brother R. B. Williams & was a faithful member & servant.
She graduated from Capitol Hill High School in Oklahoma City in 1957 & soon after married the love of her life Floyd McCollum of Tulare, California. They moved to Tulare, California where they started their family of 3 daughters, Leniese, Gaylene & Sheryl. She took pride in taking care of her home & her ability as a seamstress showed in the clothes she made for her daughters.
In 1971 the family moved back to Oklahoma City where Floyd became a deacon of the Church & she was by his side helping the brethren in their time of need. She loved her church family & brethren & especially enjoyed all church events & activities. She always looked forward to visiting with the brethren & always asked when they would be back.
She was an excellent artist & admired the paintings of Thomas Kincade & tried to emulate his work. Often she would donate her paintings for the benefit of church fundraisers, but also found joy in giving many of her paintings to family, friends, & brethren. One of her greatest joys was spending time with her grandchildren, Melissa, Jeremy, Shelby & Meagan.
She is preceded in death by her husband Floyd, parents Dewey & Grace Tittle, Brothers; Murrel, Paul, & Raymond, Sisters; Lucille, Ella Mae & Alma June.
