July 18, 1963 - April 21, 2020

Laura Carmel Tittel was born July 18, 1963 in Columbus, Ohio. Laura passed peacefully under hospice care on April 21, 2020 in Columbus. Laura was a warrior that overcame many health obstacles, but sadly lost her battle to cancer.

Laura was the third child born to Robert Tittel and Anita (Bonaventura)Tittel. She grew up in a loving Italian-American family where bonds are life-long. Laura was a resident of Grandview Heights and she was Bobcat throughout her schooling, she graduated from Grandview Heights High School in 1982. She went on to complete her certification at the Ohio State School of Cosmetology and worked for many years at various salons in Columbus. She was a friend to all who sat in her chair, a listening ear, and a shoulder to lean on. Laura had many friends and was always making people feel joy. Her sense of humor was lighthearted and full of soul. Her spirit shined when she was cheering on the Buckeyes, as she was an avid fan. Laura loved dogs and was known to take care of many friend’s pets when in need.

Preceded in death by her father, Robert Tittel; grandparents, Robert & Helen (Cherrington) Tittel; maternal grandparents, Luigi & Judith (Quaranto) Bonaventura; sister-in-law, Starlet Riley; nephews, Jeremy Tittel & Travis Tittel; and her beloved dog, Echo.

When others would only find the gloom Laura would find the sunshine. Those of us who knew her knew her smile came from her warm and happy soul. She was a treasure to have known and though she will be missed on earth we will all be happy to see her smile greet us when we arrive. God bless you each with warm and happy memories and the ability to feel her love until you meet again. With love and condolences, Jenny Henslee Garrett & Family

I don't know where to begin, but we met in high school & you were a part of my life from that day forward. I cannot remember a day when you were not my friend. You were always a guest at my children's parties & later celebrated new life with me when I became a Mimi. You even stopped calling me Mary & when I'd call you, you'd say "Hi Mimi!" Then we'd be on the phone for hours. We shot way too much pool at Amicon's and almost became roommates! You babysat my newborn so that my husband & I could have some alone time, but she cried the entire time we were away. I remember the haggard look on your face we got home, but you didn't complain. You loved children, all children. My kids definitely loved you and called you Aunt Lala. Once you lived right around the corner from me & you'd stop by with your scissors to trim my girls' hair. Of course my son had to slice his hand on your newly sharpened scissors, so you stayed at my place with the other kids so I could take him to the ER lol I'm so glad that we were able to spend a lot of time together recently. God would lay you on my heart & I'd either call you or grab a pizza & just stop by to chat about old times. My heart is sad and I will never forget our friendship. I'm sending my love and prayers to everyone that loved and will miss my Lala.
