Lettie Ann Curtis
Born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on November 12, 1952, the daughter of Walter Curtis and Marjorie (nee Dorsey) Curtis. She received her formal education in the Milwaukee Public Schools, attending Roosevelt Middle School and North Division High School. The oldest of nine children, Lettie spent much of her time helping her mother raise her siblings and being there for her siblings when they needed her help.
Over the years, Lettie worked as an environmental service aide at Shorewood Heights, the Park East Hotel, St. Mary's Hospital, Community Care - Vliet Street, and Community Care - Prospect Place prior to retiring in 2014. She most enjoyed being at home where she could relax and watch her shows, do her crossword puzzles, and listen to her Motown music. When socializing with family and friends., Lettie had that rare ability to make those around her smile and feel good about themselves.
On June 15, 2019, at the young age of 66 years, Lettie was called home to her Lord, passing peacefully at Auroia Zilber Family Hospice in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, surrounded by loving family members.

Lettie was preceded in death by her parents, Walter Curtis and Marjorie Curtis, and her brother, Michael Curtis.
