Betty Kay (Ainge) Curtis

September 19, 1939 ~ August 12, 2018 (age 78)

On August 12th, 2018, Betty Curtis peacefully left this existence, to a joyous reunion and into the arms of many loved family and friends who departed before her. It was a short illness but this was a journey she was now anxious to take.

Betty was born September 19th,1939, in Spanish Fork, Utah, to Alfred Earl Ainge and Dot Norton. She attended Spanish Fork Schools. She met the love of her life, Rowley Marvin Curtis, in the summer of 1955 and though they were young, they were soon married in the Salt Lake LDS Temple on August 16, 1955.

They were married for 59 years until Rowley's passing in 2014. Their honeymoon was to travel across the country with a carload of other FFA officers to attend a national convention.

Betty is survived by her children, Corin (Robert) Hall, Vineyard; Nanette (Paul) Black, Goshen; Chad (Janene) Curtis, Springville; Brent Curtis, Springville; Taunya (Randy) Bellew, Springville; Jesse (Dianne) Curtis, Mapleton; Jennifer (Paul) McElligott, Saratoga Springs. Betty also had a rapidly growing posterity of 25 grandchildren and 24 great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, Alfred and Dot, by her step father Robert Wyler, by her husband, Rowley, by her siblings, Fannie Ann, Max, Jay and recently, sister Dorothy Marlene. Also preceding her are grandsons Jeremy and Jay Hall, Brandon Curtis and Christopher Curtis.

In her life, Betty worked a variety of jobs. She was a bookkeeper and egg processor for Rowley's Mountain View Egg company, did books for Curtis Concrete Company, worked as a seamstress at a clothing manufacturer and drove school bus for Nebo School District for 25 years. Of her many talents and hobbies, she sewed dresses for her daughters, cut hair for her husband and sons, baked many homemade treats and goodies including bread for many years and canned fruit and vegetables from her gardens. She was always an avid reader. Betty served her Lord in many callings through the years in primary, Sunday school and in Relief Society presidencies. Rowley and Betty served as missionaries in the stake, in LDS Employment Resources and a full time mission to the Richmond Virginia Mission.

The family would like to thank the medical staffs with Springville EMTs, Utah Valley Regional Medical Center and for Brighton Hospice who quickly responded when Betty needed them.

Funeral will be held, Saturday, August 18th, 2018, at 11:00 am in the LDS Kolob Stake Center, 1230 South 400 East, Springville.
