Edith May Curtin
May 30, 1925 - December 4, 2012

Edith (best known as Edie) was born in Ponca, Nebraska to Hatti and Clarence Van Buskirk. She had seven siblings: Velma, Alice, Norm, Bonnie, Don, Myrt and Leo. Clarence, a carpenter, moved the family to Nampa in 1943.

She married Frank Wyant and had two daughters. As a single mother she worked at Armor Star for many years where she met the love of her life, Donald J Curtin. They were married in 1969.

Edie and Don enjoyed many activities together, including fishing, hiking, golfing and their cabin at Terrace Lake. They were both active member of the United Presbyterian Church in Nampa where she was also a deaconess. She was a member of Ladies Elks and Garden Club and enjoyed her bible studies and bridge games with friends.

Some of her favorite hobbies were crocheting, needlepoint, calligraphy and pine needle raffia. She loved bird watching and her flower and cactus gardens.

She is survived by her siblings, Myrt Englehardt (Nampa) and Leo Van Buskirk (Marysville, WA); stepsons, John Curtin (Sammamish, WA) and Dan Curtin (Telluride, CO); daughters, Vicki Luedke (Genesee, ID) and Sherri Morse (Sagle, ID), seven grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.

Memorial services will be held at the Presbyterian Church in Nampa Saturday, June 8 at 2:00 p.m.

Memorials in her name may be made to the Alzheimer's Association.
