She was born in Toledo, Ohio to Samuel Grant and Nora Thelma (nee Craycraft) Curtis. She was one of 9 children. They moved several times but spent most of her life in Kentucky and considered Peach Grove home.
She met the love of her life, Marvin Dale Jett, on the telephone during a business call! They struck up a conversation and he had to go see the "beautiful voice" he had been talking to. They married August 13, 1960 and formed a family with her daughters Ellen and Vicki. In 1962, they added a daughter, Paula Dale and in 1966, a son, Eric Shawn.
Many blessings and many tough times came through the years, but she remained the strength of her family. She will be missed by all who knew her.
Memorials may be sent to Faith United Methodist Church, 180 North 5th Street, Batavia, Ohio 45103.
