East Liverpool Tribune

Mrs. Letitia B. Curry, one of the oldest inhabitants of East Liverpool, and most universally popular with all who knew her, died Tuesday, January 23, 1900, at 5 p.m. Her death was caused by fatty degeneration of the heart, and came suddenly, although she had not been well for some time. Mrs. Curry died at her home in the west end, near Riverside park, where she had lived for three years. Her funeral will take place Friday, January 25, at 2 p.m., interment being in Riverview cemetery.

Mrs. Curry was born in Pittsburg, April 30, 1828. Her maiden name was Jack, and a number of relatives still live in the State of her birth. She was married to the late William E. Curry, who died in November, 1898. The family came to East Liverpool from Pittsburg twenty-five years ago, and Mr. Curry went into the furniture and undertaking business. He was a member of the firm of Anderson & Curry, whose place of business was on Second street.

Four children survive Mrs. Curry – William J. and Frank F., and Mrs. C. F. Johnson, of East Liverpool, and Mrs. E. J. Moody, of Santa Barbara, Cal. Three sisters are also living – Mrs. F. W. Hay, of Johnstown, Pa., Mrs. J. L. Hurst, of McKeesport, Pa., and Miss Presillia Jack, Greensburg. Miss Fannie Jack and Mrs. Chal. Peterson, both of East Liverpool, are nieces.
