Ann P. Curtis passed away Sept. 8, 2010, at her home in Colorado Springs.

Ann attended The Baptist Hospital School of Nursing in Birmingham, Ala.

Upon graduation she then joined the U.S. Air Force where she earned the rank of captain. She was very active in the Air Force Community Wives club(s) and actively supported the MIA’s during overseas conflicts. Once honorably discharged from the USAF, she began her career as an Air Force fighter pilot’s wife and a mother of two.

Ann continued her nursing career with many years of service at Memorial Hospital in Colorado Springs; Humana Hospital in Las Vegas, Nev.; and Humana Hospital in Destin, Fla., from which she retired before moving back to Colorado Springs.

Ann had a very colorful personality and diction to go with it. She could use both to make her views understood as she often did. She was also an avid, accomplished golfer and it was one of her favorite past times. She enjoyed reading, working crossword puzzles and was an excellent cook.
