Evelyn Haag Curtis, 93, passed away peacefully at her home in Fort Worth on Friday, August 20, 2010.

She was born Evelyn Ethel Haag in Jacksboro, Tex., on Oct. 25, 1916, the fourth and youngest child of Herschel Lawrence Haag and Francis Laura Oliver, ranchers and descendants of Jack County settlers. The family eventually moved to Midland, where Evelyn finished her education at Midland High School. She became a secretary in Midland's growing oil industry.

In 1941, she married Thomas M. Curtis, a Mississippi native and petroleum engineering graduate of the University of Texas. Six weeks after their wedding, the United States was drawn into World War II with the attack on Pearl Harbor. Her husband joined the U.S. Navy, earning an officer's commission at the Naval Academy in Annapolis. Before his duty aboard ships in the Atlantic and South Pacific, they were stationed in Florida.

When the war ended, they were happily reunited and returned to the oil business which took them back to Midland, then Fort Worth, Farmington, N.M. and Denver, Colo. When Tom retired from Amoco Production Company after 38 years of service, they moved back to Fort Worth.

During their years in Fort Worth, they lived in the Westcliff neighborhood from 1951 to 1961, and after retirement, in Overton Park, from 1988 to the present. Tom preceded Evelyn in death in 2002.

A homemaker throughout their 60-year marriage, Evelyn was a devoted wife and loving mother to their two children. She enjoyed an active social life, had numerous interests and was a lifelong Methodist.

Her survivors include Carolyn Curtis, daughter, and Thomas M. Curtis Jr., son, both of Fort Worth, plus many caring relatives, neighbors and friends.
