Hazel Curtis

Published

Memaw was an incredible person, who greatly loved Jesus and her family. She has forever impacted the lives of her children and grandchildren, through her love and her example of an extraordinary Christian life. Memaw was a one-of-a-kind lady who fixed fences for cattle in remote areas with a six gun on her hip, bailed hay, quilted, tanned deer hides and beaver pelts for her grandchildren, taught her grandchildren to drive vehicles and tractors, and helped her grandsons hunt the deer in her backyard. Memaw also was skilled in electrical work, an expert in herbal medicine and an excellent storyteller. She was a wonderful cook who was known for her homemade bread, cornbread, biscuits and granny pie. She showed us all what a well-worn Bible should look like. Most importantly, she spoke knowledgeably of Jesus and scripture. Not only did she have a deep understanding of scripture, but she also lived out her faith on a daily basis. She was a prayer warrior for her kids and grandkids, as well as for her extended family and friends. She carried burdens for each and took them before the throne of God. Memaw will be missed, but her impact through a life well lived will remain, as seen in the way she has touched multiple generations through her incredibly strong faith and her selfless love for others. If Memaw could leave one message to this world, it would be to repent of your sins and to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior before making your passage into eternity Romans 10:9. Today could be that day, because we do not know when we will be called to meet our maker. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16

Hazel is preceded in death by her husband, Marvin Curtis, Sr.; her parents, Virginia Pearl Gilenski Taylor, Powell Burnell Taylor and step-mother, Margurite Taylor; brother, Powell Taylor; and sister, Edie Beasley.

She is survived by her sons, Marvin Curtis, Jr. (Faith) and Ronnie Curtis (Myra); her daughter, Elizabeth Carraway (David); grandchildren, Marvin Curtis, III, Aaron Curtis (Brandy), Johnathan Curtis (Holly), Kevin Curtis (Megan), Jeremiah Curtis, Caleb Curtis, David Carraway (Jodie) and Joshua Carraway; 10 great-grandchildren; and sister, Virginia Hole.

A graveside service will be held at 10 a.m. Friday, Dec. 4, 2020 at Cayuga Cemetery. Rev. Marvin Curtis is officiating.

Pallbearers will be Marvin Curtis, III, Aaron Curtis, Johnathan Curtis, Kevin Curtis, Jeremiah Curtis, David Carraway, Joshua Carraway and Caleb Curtis.
