ObitLessie Florence's obituary was published in the Lowe Funeral Home on circa 16 October 2015:
Our sweet, precious mother, Lessie Florence Pritchard Curtis, 85, previously of 1310 Willie Pace Rd, Burlington and most recently of Springview Assisted Living in Burlington, surrounded by her loving family, passed from this earthly world to the heavens above on October 15, 2014 at the Hospice Home in Burlington, NC. Our Mom was the ninth child of eleven born on March 13, 1929 to Eliam and Vettie Wilson Pritchard, and was the last one living. She was born and raised in the mountains of North Carolina in Avery County which she dearly loved. After living in Hudson most of her life, Mom retired from Snyder Paper Company in Hickory and moved to Burlington in 1994 to watch her granddaughter, Emily, grow up. Until the dementia, Mom loved to watch NASCAR, Richard Petty and Jeff Gordon. You'd better not call her during a race, because she wouldn't answer the telephone. She also loved most sports, especially the North Carolina State Wolfpack and anybody who played the Tar Heels! She loved to read, quilt, cook and care for her family. She loved to see the grandchildren come in for a visit. She liked helping people whenever and wherever she could, but didn't like to accept help herself. She had a temper and would let you know when you made her mad, but she was also a gentle soul. She loved to laugh, and to see her laugh would make you laugh also.
Mom was predeceased by her parents, and her brothers and sisters: Dovie Stamey, Ruby Deaton, Sylvia Biggerstaff, Pauline Cutherberson, Daymon Pritchard, Margaret Braswell, Darris Pritchard, Delmar Penley, Dillard Pritchard, and Floretta Colvard. She had been married to our father, Julius Clifford Curtis before divorce. She is survived by sons, Richard Allen Curtis and wife Jane of Fairfax Station, VA; Eugene Curtis and wife Angela of Granite Falls, NC; and daughter Patricia Anne Curtis Apple and husband Wade of Burlington, NC; known as grandmommy to grandchildren; Richard Tyler Curtis and wife Alyson of Washington DC; Charlotte Cromley Curtis of Northampton, MA; and Nanny to Emily Danielle Apple of Burlington, NC and Drew Noonan of Granite Falls, NC; and one great grandson, Owen James Curtis of Washington DC. The visitation will be held Saturday, October 25, 2014 from 11-12 with the memorial service immediately following at Baton United Methodist Church at 1034 Dry Ponds Road, Granite Falls, NC. The family would like to thank Janice Worth and all the aides at Springview Assisted Living on North Mebane St., Burlington for all the wonderful care that they gave to our Mom for over the past three years. They are angels to have as caregivers. We would also like to thank all of the nurses , CNA's and doctors at The Hospice Home for their loving, tender care shown to our Mom during the last week. The family requests donations be made to The Hospice Home, 918 Chapel Hill Rd., Burlington, NC 27215 in memory of Mom. We love you and miss you. Until we see you again…Cheer for the Wolfpack!1
