Eula Curtis November 29, 1919 - April 19, 2018

Eula Curtis was born in Marcola, Oregon, to Sam and Virtue Spicer. She graduated high school as class valedictorian. She met her future husband Lester Russell Curtis on a blind date and they were married in 1943. Russ was hired as a cartographer for the USGS. The couple and their three young daughters lived in seven western states and moved 61 times in the 30-plus years he worked for the government.

In 1947 Russ was sent to Prineville. They loved it there and decided they would retire in Central Oregon. They purchased land in Sisters and moved there in 1973. Eula worked for the City of Sisters from 1980 until 1985. In 1992 she became a SMART volunteer for the grade school for several years and loved it. Eula also volunteered at the Sisters Area Chamber of Commerce for several years. She joined the Sisters Rodeo Association in 2000, where she took tickets at the gate and worked in the kitchen. She volunteered at the Sisters Fire Hall for Christmas dinners and volunteered at Sisters Habitat.

Eula was preceded in death by her husband of 62 years, Russ; daughter Patty Swarens; and her five siblings. She is survived by her daughters, Nancy Curtis and Susan Aylor.

Eula was always known for her sense of humor and wit. She was a wonderful wife, mother, and friend. There will be a celebration of life June 23, at 3 p.m. at Sisters Rodeo Clubhouse.
