(From the Sandpoint (Idaho) News of January 25, 1934)
MRS. NELL CURTIS
The victim of a sudden heart attack, Mrs. Nell Curtis, 50, passed away at the family residence on South Huron this morning. Mrs. Curtis was stricken between 5 and 6 o'clock Wednesday evening. When her son, Murtha, came home at 6:20 he found his mother unconscious. She never rallied.
Born July 4, 1883 at Shepherd, Michigan, Nell Murtha graduated from the Shepherd high school and later from the Michigan State Normal school. After her graduation she taught school for a couple of years prior to her marriage to Richard F. Curtis at Shepherd 28 years ago.
Mr. and Mrs. Curtis came west to Wallace in 1909, where they resided for a year and in 1910 came to Sandpoint, where they have resided since.
To this union two children were born, Murtha, who is associated with his father in the Crescent Pharmacy, and Ann, a student at the University of Idaho.
Mrs. Curtis was active in church and fraternal work. She was a member of the Presbyterian church and the Women's association. She also served as matron of the Eastern Star chapter and was also an active member of the P. E. O. sisterhood.
All members of the family were home at the end. Miss Ann Curtis, notified of her mother's condition, left Moscow and arrived in Sandpoint early this morning. Besides her husband and children, Mrs. Curtis is survived by a brother, Dr. A. V. Murtha, Pontiac, Michigan.
The body is at Moon's awaiting funeral arrangements.
