Mary Ethel (Eslocker) Curtis passed on to her heavenly home on July 23, 2017 at Citrus Health and Rehab Center.
In her 90 years, Mary celebrated life and was devoted to her faith, family and friends.
She was born February 18, 1927 in Racine, Ohio where she lived next door to the Curtis family. She fell in love with her husband, Sam when she was 2 and he was 5 years old. He was the love of her life and preceded her in death in March of 2013. They were married 66 years.
They made their home in Ohio, and in their younger years, they were Youth Pastors and Sunday School teachers, mentoring and sharing their faith. They moved to Inverness in 1997 where they were active members of First Baptist Church in Inverness. She served in the food pantry, clothes closet, Vacation Bible School, campers on mission and was the organizer of a Red Hat Ladies group that provided donations to the Christmas Shoebox project. She was a Camp Fire Girl leader for many years, played golf and she loved to play cards. She loved teddy bears and had a huge collection that she shared with others by giving many away to the Christmas Shoebox Project and to CASA.
Mary is survived by her daughter, Sue (Curtis) Sweeney and son-in-law Tom Sweeney, her sister, June Westerfield who is 92 and many loving nephews and nieces.
Mary will be remembered for her outgoing, friendly personality and commitment to the Lord, family and friends. She had a servant heart and was able to help other widowed friends who needed rides, help and encouragement. Mary was also a servant in death by giving her body to Science Care so that her body could be used to help others. There will be no memorial service as she desired no attention to herself, only memories for those who knew her.
The family is grateful to Dr. Dalton Benson, Citrus Memorial Hospital, and Citrus Health and Rehab Center for their exceptional care and attention to Mary's health needs and to her church family in her last days.
In lieu of flowers, please consider making donations to Samaritan's Purse - Christmas Shoebox Project or to Citrus County Hospice.
