Titi’s passing has left a void in all of our lives.

The great impact her presence and positive contributions to the world have influenced our universe for the greater good, and though she is no longer with us, her legacy as a pioneer in the natural beauty movement will be felt for years to come.

Titi’s sister and Co-founder of Miss Jessie’s, Miko, discusses this in her own words:

My beloved sister, Titi Cree Branch passed away on December 4, 2014.

A private memorial service in her honor was held on December 14, 2014. Titi is now at peace.

My family and I want to thank you for your love and overwhelming support, delivered in kind words, warm notes, lovely flowers and, of
 course, in heartfelt prayer. We have received them all with gratitude
 and appreciation. During this difficult time, please know that your
 support provides much ease to our bereavement.

Our family and close friends are actively trying to discover and comprehend the events leading up to Titi’s death, but we are hopeful that all things will come to the light.

Your love has given me the strength that I need to continue to move forward in tribute to Titi.

Titi had a special combination of personality traits, such as genuine
 kindness, attentiveness, and a willingness to share her love without 

I wished she would have stayed longer. Titi has gone home and it gives me comfort to know that she has reunited with our beloved grandmother, Jessie Mae Branch.

My sister touched many lives in a deeply meaningful way, and many of you have generously asked if there are additional ways in which you can be of assistance. It would be of great reassurance to me if you will help me to keep Titi’s name and legacy alive, and to spread the good word about what a great woman she was ~ a wonderful person of invention and innovation.

Titi as a wonderful person of invention…
